Picanton Baja is clean and the service is great. PB is located very close to the malecon. The burritos, tacos, and quesadillas are delicious! And the price is right! You have to try the beans.

This is a very casual restaurant, but looks are deceiving. The food is exceptional! We eat here often or have food delivered. Their carnitas are my favorite. Very lean, very flavorful. Great selection of Mexican foods.

Bill and I thought we would explore Mazatlan and find a good lunch place. This was a good dart throw. We found it on the map and took the cross town bus [sabino central] 10 pesos from our resort PB. I knew it was a few blocks from the beach but I asked the bus driver (really I showed him... More

We sought out the Picanton Baja Grill after reading some TA reviews. We were walking to Plaza Machado after our hike up Cerro Creston and thought we would try it out. Our server Lupita was attentive and accommodating, even helping me change my order. We had burritos and a Torta Ahogada. The food took quite awhile to get to us... More

This little place is easy to find, about three blocks from the beach. The owner speaks English, and the food is very good. We plan to eat here several times on our vacation. The salsa bar has several very hot salsas too!

We were so glad we took the time to find this restaurant. We were the only patrons there for lunch so I hope it gets busier because the food is really good and the price was certainly right. I had a chicken tostada which was stacked with fresh ingredients and very yummy. My husband had a burrito that was a... More

A true hidden gem. The food was fantastic and fresh tasting, and very reasonable. The location is a bit off the path to find but worth it! A great place for lunch. Loved their fish tacos. Would go again in a heartbeat. They don't serve alchohol however, but I'm sure you can find a nice beer somewhere else before or... More
