The location is perfect...dining while the sun sets over the ocean. The kitchen and wait staff are very prompt. The dishes are quite generous. I ordered the yummy coconut shrimp and had left-overs for several lunches. Our margaritas were perfect. The finishing touch....complimentary shots of Kahlua. Panchos is a very popular dining choice...strongly recommend reservations.

We went to Pancho's for the first time for brunch on Sunday at 12:00 pm. We had a group of 18 and had to wait about 15 minutes as the restaurant was busy. We were seated outside to look at the sea and make deals with beach vendors as we ate! The staff was fun and professional, bringing us everything... More

A new site is across the street from Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan. The food is always good at Pancho's, the service is exceptional. I requested fresh fish and eggs for breakfast and they were accommodating and please with my creation they now have it on the menu for breakfast. I always visit Pancho's when in Mazatlan. The Beach site is wonderful... More

A family tradition, where we go for Birthday breakfasts for sure. We have been patrons of Pancho's since it first opened. A special place in out hearts as our late father had coffee and pastries with his business associates every morning and was a personal friend with the founder. Best thing about the food is that it is consistent. Nothing... More

Everything we've tried here was good. Great tortilla soup and octopus dish. It's the little things that count. Stuffed pepper applies and Kailua and milk after meal is a nice touch.

I've been visiting Maz for over 20 years, I dine at Pancho's at least 2-3 times every visit. He is a wonderful host, his staff are friendly and efficient, his food is very good. It's just one of those Maz things I suppose, you can't go to Maz without going to Pancho's! He never forgets a face or name.

Best coconut shrimp I have ever had. The servers are excellent. There is nothing I dislike except having to wait for a table. They are always busy!

We have eaten at Panchos, located at the beach in the Zona Dorado, probably four or five times over the years, most recently July 2014. Great service, big portions, decent food, decent prices, and the setting--watching the beach life unfold outside the window cannot be beat. Plus going upstairs to use the clean bathrooms, is like going through a museum.
