The Pancho's on the beach is a must stop when in Mazatlan. Papa Pancho owns this location and is there every time we go. Pancho's shrimp, Margaritas, and Mexican coffee are worth the visit. The Mexican coffee presentation is an art they have perfected.

Great appetizers, Fried pepper/jalepeno, and after dinner drink free for all...Our stuffed, bacon wrapped shrimp were unbelievable. The 2+2+2 shrimp was gre4at and the beef tenderloins. Had a table on the beach. Nice air, warm and very relaxing. Great people.

Great food and strong margaritas! Staff were friendly and always kept the drinks full. Dinner portions were very large and we found the prices more than fair considering all the extras they kept bringing...endless chips and salsa, tequila shots as well as kahlua. Definitely recommend for a group dinner.

We found Pancho's to be just average. Had about a twenty minute wait to get in on a Tuesday evening. The Golden Zone location is beautifully situated on the beach. Open air restaurant with multi levels set up in a strip mall. I had the chicken fajitas which were ok, I was missing the sides were accustomed to at home... More

One of the best places in Mazatlan. The best coconut shrimp I've ever had. When in Mazatlan I go at least 3-4 times for either breakfast,lunch or dinner. The tequila cheese prepared table side for appetizer is awesome. Request Panchos margarita(vs.regular) and they prepare that table side as well as Mexican coffee. They give you free "moonshine" while you wait... More

We always have to have a cheeseburger and a margarita when we go to Mazatlan. Great cheeseburgers and excellent Margaritas can be found at Pancho's. The service is the best and the views are incredible. When you are finished, you can walk right onto the beach.

Delicious, reasonably priced meal located right on the beach...what more could you ask for! Service was a tad bit slow but we were there during peak dinner rush and it was not for lack of effort by our very busy server so I can't hold that against them! Highly recommend :) *Note, there are two locations, go to the one... More

We like the authentic Mexican food and vibe here. Tequila cheese is recommended and my son loves his frog legs. Clean and trendy and good service....until you have to wait too long for your bill to leave. I would recommend to try while you're in Mazatlan ....among many others....great city for food and drinks.
