Great view, but very mediocre food. We wanted a restaurant close to my parents hotel with a nice ocean view and decided to go back to Pancho's. It had been 4 years since we visited, it will be at least 4 more. The staff is friendly but unfortunately the quality of the food wasn't. It wasn't very busy either, maybe... More

The margaritas here are huge and POTENT! Very delicious. I had stuffed fish and it was a little dry. The salsa and chips were good. They give complimentary stuffed jalapenos and a Kahlua shot at the end. Atmosphere was nice and I definitely did not walk back to the hotel after that margarita. :-)

Every time i have the opportunity to visit Mazatlan my first spot to visit, even before the hotel is Pancho´s Restaurant, the service, the food quality, the view is amazing, one of the few restaurants with beach.

have always enjoyed eating here (20 years ), we always try to get an outdoor table...not completely in the open , just where you can look out to the beach......they have the little extras that make it special...an appetizer, plus salsa and chips, and at the end of your meal, a complimentary kahlua and cream, just enough to complete a...

Water front dinning at it's finest. Fun for the whole family. Great dinning selections. Wonderful service. Center of the golden zone. Average priced. Now one of my favorite places.

We like Poncho's very much, especially the new one across from Pueblo Bonito. They make your fresh salsa right at your table. You tell them how much pepper to add. How great is that for us non-spicy folks. The prime rib night is outstanding. My favorite is still the Caesar salad with the shrimp. It is always the first dish... More

Just across the street from Pueblo Bonito, is one of the finest restaurants in all of Mazatlan. There are 2 of them in Mazatlan, one on the beach in the golden zone, and this one. It is a family run restaurant and they pride themselves on food value, customer service and cordiality. They are fantastic and I go there many... More
