Across the street from Holiday Inn Express.....real surprise....

After checking into the Holiday Inn Express in Culiacan we were ready for dinner. Saw the sign for Panama, on the side of this mid rise office park across the street. We had a great meal at the Panama in old town Mazatlan so we thought we would give the Culiacan branch a try. When we entered the... read more

It is the perfect place to gather with friends, family, or a business partner for breakfast or lunch. They have wide spaces and tall ceilings, tons of waiters (but the kitchen to my taste is a bit slow due to the crowd) well trained. Everybody that has a career in restaurant business started working at Panama Restaurants, or so they... More

They have a quick service, the weekends could be crowed and you have to wait for a table. The taste is excellent y you can choose between a variety of dishes. You can find it in Mazatlán and Culiacán, there's a lot of locations.

The restaurant is average, but the take away pastries are outstanding. You can pick up a few days worth of breakfast croissants, donuts, cinnamon rolls, strudels and the like and for very reasonable prices. They put the donuts you can get at Mega to shame. If you're staying in a condo or such where you're preparing your own meals, this... More

I find Panama cheap if compared with... More

Panamas in Mazatlan always have great food and great service. Completely caught off guard with our visit in Culiacan. Went for breakfast before the morning rush. There were so many employees standing around talking to each other and ignoring our table. It was the strangest surreal visit. It's the morning. I WANT COFEE! Keep bringing coffee to my table, I'm...
