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.

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...
