A must stop.

Pancho's is a must stop every year and we are never disappointed. The only problem is what to order as everything on thier menu is so good. I especially love the deep fried stuffed pepper appetizer that comes free. There were 6 of us and everyone really enjoyed thier dinner.

This past week a group of 4 (including 2 teens) went to Pancho's. Even though it was busy, we were seated right away, upstairs at the open air table right next to the beach. The food: salmon with mango sauce cooked perfectly both times (my daughter ordered it twice), and my friend's daughter lover her shrimp fettuccini. Our second visit... More

Panchos sits above the beach with incredible views. In my opinion, the shrimp are the best item on the menu. Enough so that I went back to have them again. The setting is wonderful and often musicians will come by to entertain. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The food is delicious. What a terrific casual environment.

We always end our visit with a very nice dinner and we decided to go walking distance from our hotel. Pancho's was grand. We enjoyed a seat by the window and listened to the waves crashing and watched the lights of Old Mazatlan twinkle below. My husband had a stuffed fish (shrimp, octopus...) and he couldn't stop raving. I had... More

We have always loved the location, gracious service, and delightful menu! This was a busy season, and the hustling beach area was fun to be a part of--from afar! We ordered the Tequila Queso, and it was so, so, so good.

It has been two years since we were last in Mazatlán, and some of the old 'favorites' have gone downhill a bit. But not Pancho's in the Golden Zone. Still great food in a beach front atmosphere that is almost impossible to beat. I had the Pork Shank - house special - and it was one of the best, if... More

We visit here each time we're in town. It's a great place to walk to from the beach, then after dinner, visit the shops sounding it in your way back (also, Panama's is near so you can work up room for dessert) to where you're staying. The food if ALWAYS terrific and we've tried nearly all the items. Enjoy the... More

I just tried this place out thanks to the advice of my Mazatlán dentist. (Dr. Rafael Valdez) as it is one of his favourite places to take his family, so I followed his advice. I ordered the fruit and yogurt plate which consisted of mango, watermelon, pineapple, orange, yogurt and granola with honey. The presentation was something else and enough... More
