“great atmosphere, food and price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We were very pleased with all aspects of the restaurant. My son has a peanut allergy and they were extremely sensitive to it, and were very accommodating. Beyond that, the food was great (salsa made at the table) the prices were very reasonable, and the atmosphere was festive. Would go back again!

Bad service, terrible food. We waited 50 minutes for our food and it was cold and it was not what we ordered... And expensive...

“Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We ate a Poncho's for the 2nd time. The food was good and had more than we could eat. The waiters were attentive but not pesty. I would say probably the best restaurant on the beach. Poncho greets every customer as though they are his best and if you have a meal most often you get a complimentray drink. I don't drink but it is a nice gesture and gives you the feeling of being appreciated.

I would recommend Poncho's to anyone. The food is good but I have had better but I will go back and if I say i will go back the food is good. I have very sensitive taste

“Perfecto Pancho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We ate at Pancho's on the beach in the Golden Zone. The restaurant is typical Mexican but a notch above with beautiful tile and pottery displays. Naturally, the beach setting is perfect. The bathrooms are pristine. They were very accommodating in seating the five of us and dinner started with an appetizer of some sort of fried fish and chile goodie. Plus, they brought us a shot of some guava flavored alcohol before dinner and then Kahlua and cream after dinner – all complimentary. Two of our group had fish fillet, one had spectacular shrimp fahitas, and one had stunning molcajete (best of the trip). One had the enormous pork shank special topped with a wonderful sauce making it a real winner. The molcajete came bubbling hot in the 3-legged stone bowl and continued to bubble throughout dinner. However, the food was not over the top scorched and was easily edible. Three cheese hunks were draped over the side along with slices of spices chicken, tomato, and grilled cactus. Next year, we're coming back for Spanish coffees seen in some of the other pictures. The food here is really fabulous.

“There is another Pancho's in Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Everone knows the Pancho's on the water in the Gold Zone, but there is a new one. It is located north of the Gold Zone in a brand new building. We have been going there for breakfast for 2 years now and always have great food and service. We enjoy sitting outside on the patio with the french toast being our favorite. It is made with thick, fresh home baked bread and all the breakfasts come with a choice of a fruit plate or fresh juice.
