PAYNE – Panchos, a new restaurant, held its grand opening ceremony on June 28. The owners Mesi and Maria Diaz were the previous owners of The Pancake House. Approximately five months ago they shut down The Pancake House and relocated to a vacant building across the street.

Panchos occupies the former Giddy Up restaurant, and it was also formerly known as Club 49. While the transition was a challenge to complete, they were able to do it successfully. The new patrons of Panchos commented as they walked in, “Wow! This looks nothing like it used to!” Some commented on where the bar used to be or where their favorite spot was when it was the Giddy Up.

Members from the Payne Chamber of Commerece and Tim Copsey, the Director of the Paulding Economic Development Office were in attendence to celebrate the grand opening.

The Diaz’s welcome all residents of Payne and surrounding areas to visit their restaurant Monday-Sunday from 6 a.m. - 8 p.m. They offer a wide variety of items on their menu ranging from a simple eggs, bacon and toast breakfast to Mexican cuisine.

It was mentioned by a few of the staff members that once they get settled in with their new patrons Panchos will offer a lunch delivery service to the businesses and farmers of Payne. They will offer an exclusive lunch special for delivery.

Panchos will offer the Village of Payne and the county an enjoyable dining experience.
