Founded in 1992 by Rodney Anderson, Iowa-based Pancheros Mexican Grill is a quick-serve, fresh-Mexican franchise with 65 locations nationwide. They are best known for their signature menu items -- fresh-pressed quesadillas and burritos -- and the use of "Bob the Tool," a special plastic spatula that mixes ingredients to create a uniform flavor for each bite. In addition to quesadillas and burritos, the restaurant also offers tacos, burrito bowls and salads all served with fresh-baked flour tortillas made from scratch and on-premise daily.

Like most chain Mexican restaurants, at Pancheros patrons can customize their order with meat, vegetable, cheese rice and beans, as well as either of the restaurant's specialty hot sauces, including a popular "flavocano" that incorporates seven different peppers, or "greenade" which adds a more eclectic, tangy flavor.

The new Pancheros location is located at 5440 Military Trail in Jupiter. The store will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and closes at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Call 561-469-7601, or visit pancheros.com.
