Great Food On The Beach

If you're over in the Golden Zone - don't miss this place. Excellent food, excellent service, reasonably priced, and located right on the beach. We will def go back..

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!

this restaurant is another restaurant where you will be able to taste god's food, the money you pay is nothing if you compare it with taste.

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.

Great fresh food, Salsa made at the table, fresh food, the seafood salad was very good much like sushi. Good wine list too finish my meal and wine with a cigar sold on-site overlooking... More

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

we have been to this restaurant several times over the past 12 years. The view is great - be sure to get seated on the porch - not inside. The food is adequate.

This is a favorite place for the tourist to hang and catch up with old friends. Everyone goes to Poncho's. Food is not necessarily consistent and neither is the service, but I never fail to have a good time. The Margarita's are lethal so be sure to grab a bite to eat. We walk the beach and stop for breakfast... More

During our annual two weeks in Mazatlán, we always enjoy Pancho's on the beach at least twice. Start your meal with a complimentary taste of special made tequila. Enjoy the complimentary stuffed pepper appetizer. Dive into a fulfilling and tasty meal. And, of course, the after dinner Kahlua and cream. Mmmm... I typically do not do Italian while in Mexico,...
