“Food & Ambience Were Fabulous!”
Reviewed March 2, 2010

We saw Panchos online and obviously came highly recommended. When we were walking in Cabo we happened upon it. We made reservations for dinner and then enjoyed breakfast there as well. The food was fabulous. $2.99 breakfast was incredbile. I haven't had such a delicious breakfast in a long time. Try the Rancheros. The feeling and atmosphere were warm, welcoming and relaxing. We had an awesome time. If we go back to Cabo, we'll be back to see you.
Muchas Gracias.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed February 26, 2010

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.

“A Wew Wew Marguerita!”
Reviewed February 21, 2010

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.

“Best Meal in Cabo”
Reviewed February 3, 2010

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.

“Great food, great service, great fun!”
Reviewed January 22, 2010

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.
