Went to Pancho's with a group of four. We all ordered fish of various kinds except my partner. She had a salad with grilled shrimp. The food all looked, smelled and tasted very good. I had the whole red snapper, and it was very simply prepared (grilled) and nicely cooked (ie. not overcooked at all.). Cost was around $20 USD for the snapper - certainly not the most expensive in Cabo, but not the best value either.

My partner's salad was quite good. Full of raw veggies, but no tummy issues later on! That is a good sign they likely use filtered water to clean and prepare the veggies and fruit. YMMV.

The atmosphere inside Pancho's is vibrant, noisy, and fun. Fine by me.

After a full day of exploring, shopping and 18 holes of golf, we sat outside enjoying the evening fresh air and dining on appetizers of tamale, and beef fajitas. The food was excellent, and the marguerita was just enough for a full buzz! I call that a wew wew drink. The servers are attentive, making sure our every need was met. We entered into pleasant conversation with a few of the walkers out for a stroll.
A great way to end a perfect day!
You'll always be treated to the best food in Cabo from breakfast to dinner.

We were going to try a new place every night but found that we had to return to Pancho's repeatedly. The Chammora (sp?) pork shank in a red wine sauce was to DIE FOR! Also the bacon wrapped shrimp is still haunting my dreams. They also made a drink called John's Special (apparantly the owner?) It was amazing. The waiters are all very charming and ready to give advice if you engage them in conversation. This was a favorite for food and entertainment value.

We noticed this busy restaurant and decided to try it on a week night. We did not wait long for service for our drinks, nor our food. The Traditional Mexican food was delicious (grilled snapper and BBQ ribs). The interior is colourful and lively, the waiters friendly. Musicians travelling from table to table provided a pleasant atmosphere. Definitely would visit this one again!

Reservations recommended Friday and weekends, also good for families.

Outdoor tables are also provided but you would have to put up with the cigar smokers.

Have eaten at Pancho's in the past and have had mixed results. This time it was really good, son's girlfriend who is a chef said it was her favorite Mexican food of the trip! If fact son and girlfriend are recommending it to a triend who is going to be there in early December. Her favorites were Maros for seafood, Patagonia for meat lovers, Salvatore's for Italian and RIPS for Drinks and of course Pancho's for Mexican. Hopefully the quality stays at a high level!!!!!!!
