Pancho's returns to New Orleans area

After shuttering their Metairie, La. location in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Pancho's Mexican Buffet returned to the New Orleans suburb last week with a raucous grand opening celebration.

Although this event has been mostly ignored by the mainstream media, historians will one day rank Pancho's return to Southern Louisiana on par with MacArthur's return to the Philippines or the Eagles getting back together.

To wit, here's a little footage of Panchito tearing it up next to the salsa bar.

Holy crap, I have been to that Ponchos many, many times. Sopapillas with honey, hell yeah. I was driving by there on my last trip back home and noticed they were still closed. Glad to hear about the resurrection.
