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

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with Mexican food, and that's saying something! The tortillas were beyond fresh, the shrimp was absolutely divine, the service was amazing, and the free shots of tequila incorporated into our meal were lovely. We had a nice view of the ocean and a beautiful breeze...our lunch at Pancho's was easily... More

There are 3 seating sections(that we could see) Outdoor and indoor at beach level, and indoor second floor. We sat in the outdoor beach level which has 6 tables. Everything was clean. Friendly, very... More

This has always been one of our favorites. My husband loves the Cordon bleu here. The flan is wonderful. They bring out chips and jalopeno poppers that are filled with Marlin. I assume they would be wonderful, but I'm allergic to fish and my husband doesn't eat it. Right on the beach. We did eat at the other location across... More
