Panchos is a must when visiting Mazatlan. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. The view is excellent, and with all the extras you get with your meal, you can't go wrong.

I love Panchos. Every time I go to Mazatlan this place is a must. the service is fantastic and the food is great! The little extras they provide from the welocome "shooters" to the chips and salsa, stuffed marlin jalapenos and kalua treat after the meal are fantastic. Right on the beach and again the staff are excellent. Still thinking... More

A friend recommended Panchos and gave us the money to go there for An anniversary dinner, 40 years married. The meal was great, atmosphere tops, and the sunset beautiful.

My husband and I were in port on our cruise and we had been walking up and down the beach for a while, taking in the general splendor. We had walked by Panchos earlier and decided to eat there on our way back into town. We sat on the bottom level right up on the railing on/over the sand. Wonderful... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Mazatlan. The service is unbeatable and the food is great. As a family of 23 we spent Christmas Eve at Pancho's for dinner last year. They reservered an entire room near the ocean for our group. A good time was had by all!

There are now 2 Pancho's. The original restaurant and a new one opposite Pablo Bonita. I still love the original restaurant on the beach. We went for lunch and it was packed as usual. It is becoming more expensive and I thought the food was not quite as good. However, it is still one of my favorite restaurants.

We went here for 4 meals on our 10 day stay. Tried different dishes each time and was very happy on all visits. They are large portion meals, so if your a light eater, you may want to consider sharing a dish.

Had the best view in the restaurant of the sunset. The food was amazing, and the service was stellar, they also gave us free shots of something they called "tequila moonshine" 😂. Very good I definitely recommend.
