We've had 2 meals at Pancho's trip and are going again tomorrow. First was to scope it out, since my best friend had booked it for her wedding, then for her reception. Pancho's doesn't do weddings, or so they told my friends, but they sure know how to treat you right. Both times the service, food & atmosphere has been great. I tried the Salmon "half & half" and the shrimp 2+2+2. Daughters & M-I-L shared the grilled half chicken both visits (yes, it's that big and worth getting twice) husband had the Mexican tenderloin tips and the beef brochette. They helped my friends by getting them in touch with a photographer, mariachi band, minister & pyrotechnics company. Combine that with Pancho's (Francisco) kind assistance prior to the event & Ramon's fabulous service and charm for both of our dinners and it's a place worth returning to.

There are (2) Pancho's in Mazatlan, and this review is based on experiences at the Pancho's located at the beginning of the Gold Zone, across the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan.

One word says it all: WOW!!!!

We went to Pancho's due to the great reviews on Trip Advisor. I always come to this website to do a little research so we do not miss something special while traveling.

As we entered Pancho's the staff enveloped us in hospitality. We were taken to our seats, recommendations for appetizers where made and a flurry of attention was given to us. They made Margaritas at the table side, squeezing fresh limes as we watched. As do many of the local restaurants, they make a fresh salsa to our specifications at the table side. Somehow, this salsa was better than any we had while in Mazatlan.

While we were waiting for the appetizers, we were given complimentary deep fried stuffed peppers (Note: beware the small one--it is HOT) and shots of their home made Tequila. The Tequila is made onsite daily, with an infusion of apples and oranges. I can not take shots normally (I know, I am a weany) but this stuff is delicious.

As we began it eat, the staff asked if we were interested in having a Mariachi band come into to play. Their main question was "Do you want trumpet or no Trumpet"? After a couple shots of their home made brew our answer was "With trumpet of course"!!! The band was fantastic, with full on formal uniforms. For only 100 pecos (< $8 US) they played one song and then left quickly with out that creepy hanging around thing that sometimes happens.

The food was fantastic enough for us to return again before the end of our visit. When we returned, the staff created us by name (really??) and gave us the same top notch treatment we had on our original visit.

Please go and eat at this place, I promise (with or without the trumpet), you will have a great time!!

Found this sweet spot while shopping, went for drinks and the staff was amazing. They still gave us nachos, the guys were asking about tequila and the manager gave them a free shot and also gave us directions to the liquor store and called ahead to make sure they had what we wanted. Drinks were tasty and we had a great time!
