Pancho's has a diverse menu and reasonable prices. We dined there twice on our last visit to Mazatlan and truly enjoyed ourselves. The location on the beach added to the atmosphere and the decor was what one might expect. The margaritas were also a step above the norm. I had the Marlin tacos and they were simple and delicious. I... More

Right on the beach! Owner, Pancho, is almost always present and accessible to all patrons! Consistently fine food, great service, and a great venue! One of five or so restaurants in Mazatlan that one must experience!

My wife and I cruise to Mazatlan often and this is a mandatory stop. While we have eaten here which was great, we most often we have chips, salsa, lite bites and margarita's all which are great. Prices are low and service is excellent. It is almost a must to sit on the patio to watch the goings on beachside.

This place is just a dream. Friendly waiters and wonderful atmosphere. The three amigos meal is hefty but was sincerely the best chicken I've tasted in my life. We sat on the back porch and watched the waves while playing some cards. The staff hooked it up with some free shots of tequila too! Don't go to Mazatlan without visiting... More
