So so food

If you are looking for something safe, this is the place. Reasonable prices but very bland food. Salsas were even very mild. Won't be back, too many really good restaurants in Mazatlan.

We ate here for Valentines Day because we were so tired from cervesas and sun. It was actually great food! We returned for a breakfast too, later in our week. Very tasty and reasonably priced.

Panamas not only perfects deserts, breakfast , lunch and dinner as well. Prices and quality consistent. Panama's is clean. Easy to get to. For the sake of the waitresses I wish I knew more Spanish 😊

Food is always good and moderately priced. Mexican dishes are a must but the meals are large compared to what most North Americans are used to. Also have some Western food but haven't tried. It is clean in all areas including BR's and the staff are pleasant from the time you are greeted at the door until you leave. The... More

A friend staying at my hotel brought back the most amazing sandwich/pastry one afternoon. It was flaky and light and filled with cheese, poblano peppers and some other ingredients I don't know. If you like a bit spicy, this is for you! I never bought them myself as the friend always seemed to have an extra for me. I'm heading... More

We ate at the one in the Golden Zone, and, also the one in the area of the Pino Suarez Mercado. As it is a franchise, both have high quality standards , sanitation , decor, etc. like a Perkins or a Denny's. They have a dessert cart, a salad plate cart, and a fruit plate cart they circulate with, you... More

Everything about every single Panama restaurant is excelent. From the moment you walk through the door the girl that greets you, the menu has many great options including typical mexican dishes as well as regional dishes And you have to make room for dessert, best in town All their bread is freshly baked every day

The food is always good at Panama. I've never had a bad meal there. Large variety of food. It is a "coffee shop / diner" atmosphere and can be very busy at times but you won't be disappointed with the food.

So, it's a chain - kind of a Mexican Perkins, I suppose, but you can tell it's good food for a good price by the way it's always filled with locals. A big menu is a plus; as a visitor, I like the way there are a number of actual examples of what they're serving out sitting on a table... More

We ended up as regulars at one or the other Panama locations, not for meals, but for breakfast/late-night sweets. Helpful, charming staff, luscious goodies. Yum!!
