Absolutely wonderful. The surf and turf was excellent. The lobster was incredibly tasty. The garlic frog's legs was so tasty and the amount of juicy meat amazing.

I visit Mazatlan every year and Pacho's is always the first and last meal I have. Often I come here in between as well!

Every year we eat at Poncho's two or three times during our 2 week stay in Mazatlan. It never fails to be anything but great. The food, the service, the tableside preparations and the music are all first class. The shrimp and the arrachera are my favorites. Don't miss this place when you visit Mazatlan. You will love it!!

We did lunch at Pancho's while shopping in the 'Golden Zone'. We all had different seafood dishes and each exceeded expectations! My tuna and shrimp was perfect. The service was attentive and helpful. In every restaurant review of Mazatlan we looked at before our trip and every recommendation we received for a place to eat since we arrived had Pancho's...

Going to this place is always a treat from the tequila to start your meal to the coffee liquor to finish everything this establishment does is top knot notch. Fried cheese ,bananas flambé and the Shrimp tacos are all very good selections. The sunset view is not bad either!!!

Panchos on the beach! Always a favourite with our friends and family when they come to visit. Get a table overlooking the beach and ocean, and enjoy the action while you chow down on big portions, and enjoy a wide variety of Mexican dishes (or the best cheese burger and frys in Mazatlán)! Quality food ranges from 8 to 9... More

The view is great as is the service. They are very friendly and even gave us a free drink for desert. The food is also good and they have a good variety of options.

My husband and I had dinner here based on many good recommendations, it was superb. Our friends told us to order the chef's special shrimp, which was not on the menu. The chef cooked the shrimp dish table side and it was absolutely delicious! We went back another night and took some friends. We all had something different and tried... More

We have been visiting Pancho's Restaurant for almost 30 years, we know Pancho himself, we have seen many changes and improvements of the restaurant over the years. The food is always delicious, it does not matter what you order off the menu. You get a free appetizer of deep fried jalapeno's stuffed with smoked marlin, and you get a free... More
