We had heard good things about this place so thought we would try it out. We were not disappointed. We ordered the flank steak cooked medium rare and it came just that way! Very tasty! They include a breaded and fried pepper prior to meal...More

We ate lunch at Pancho's in the Golden Zone today. I wish I had taken a picture of the outside because the one TripAdvisor is showing makes it appear that it is under construction. It most definitely is not. You walk through a quaint little...More

Pancho's is not necessarily a place you would plan to go. It is more like a joint on the sea side but what a joint ! If you like Mexican food, Mexican music and a good ambiance I recommend it . The margaritas are great,...More

We like Pancho's and normally have a view of the sunset. They seated us at the north end of the restaurant, which has a wall, so no sunset view this time. I tried something different, kahlua prawns, and was not disappointed! Very good. The service...More

We set our sights on Pancho's on the beach every time we come to Mazatlan. Fresh food and wonderful view of the sunsets. The owner stops by every now and then to make sure that you are satisfied. If you ask ahead of time they...More

The beach restaurant is nice but don't expect sunset since the islands block the view this time of year. Could do without the mariachi. Too loud!

Serve really good drinks here. Staff was fantastic and recommended some of the best Nacho's I have ever had. Location is great, looking over the beach watching the para sailing going on, and just the busy beach. I would recommend to go to this place...More

We never did try to make reservations. If you go around 4:00 or 5:00 for sunset, you'll get in. Later there is a line.
Do you accept major credit cards?

If possible don't use CC in Mexico. Try to use cash. If I were trusting anyone, I'd trust Panchos but it's not worth the experiment.
How far from the cruise port? Taxi ride ? Do they serve local shrimp at lunch? Take credit card or US dollars? Thanks!

Hi Len - it is a taxi (pulmonia) ride, to my knowledge all shrimp in Mazatlan restaurants is local shrimp. Pancho's will take credit cards or dollars. Be sure to tell the pulmonia driver that you want to go to Pancho's on... More
