A lunch outing

Great restaurant on the beach and not too far from Playa Mazatlán Beach Resort. You can get there from the beach or the road. Had a yummy margarita and some awesome shrimp! There was some live music and the service was excellent!

We have eaten there a number of times over the years. We have always had excellent meals. Our favorites are the Three Amigos Molcajete.

we've been going to Pancho's (across from Pueblo Bonito -Mazatlan) for at least 5 years and it's as good as ever.

Their shrimp is great whichever way... More

Pancho's on the beach is one my favorites in Mazatlan. Great atmosphere right on the beach with the ocean breeze coming in. Try the three Amigo's molcatjete, it's fantastic. Combine that with the free Tequila shot, Kahlua, and cream and the free stuffed peppers, it just can't be beat.

We always enjoy the generous portions of food. You are served a complimentary drink both at the beginning and after you have finished your meal--that's... More

I would rate this as one of my favorite dining experiences. the shrimp faijitas are out of this world, the Three amigos... More

Mazatlan has two Panchos and they are both great. This one is our favorite! The view of the ocean is great! All the food is wonderful. We went for a sunset dinner and we loved the experience! We tried shrimp, Mexican food, and salmon. All the food was very delicious! We will go back. Be sure you insist on a... More
