The place is in a great location. You can ask to have a table set right on the beach for special occasions. The people are professional and polite. They remember you and work hard for their tips. As an American I can't really say the foods was cheap. To us, everything is cheaper in Mexico. P.S. -- I ordered the... More

Stopped here twice during the week, and both times were simply great. First time we just went in for drinks and chips. Best margarita I had all week, and not one of those little puny things like you get a lot of places. This was the real deal. Fabuloso! The second time we went for dinner. OMG! Having been used...

Great classic Mexican menu-niftily prepared & well-served -& if you like to eat early as we do -you'll be sure to find a window tables right above beach & waves! The Mexican Plate & the Beef Haranches was delish! No room for desset they'll throw in a tasty liqueur!

Great restaurant...on the beach. Food excellent, beer cold, margaritas made correctly...what more do you want in Mexico. They have 2 restaurant and both are excellent. Eat at the beach location for breakfast - lunch and the newer one for dinner. Highly recommend!

We were in the Golden Zone, hungry and wanted to eat somewhere that wasn't playing loud music or showing some kind of a sports events on a big screen tv and we walked into Pancho's. Though it's touristy, there were 5 other groups of people eating lunch and 4 of them were Mexican, so that suggests the quality of the... More

The area is in serious decline but this place is just as good as ever. There are a few tables right against the beach and they are worth the wait if crowded. Food is good and plentiful and not too costly

In the heart of the Gold Zone and on the ocean. The staff is excellent and the food is good. A fun visit for a slice of Mexico.
