I usually have breakfast in the hotel while i'm on beach vacation. However, this time I went to Pancho's by recommendation. This is THE place you have to go for breakfast in Mazatlán. The tables are right by the beach, to enjoy the sound of...More

Haven't eaten there but have partaken in their margaritas on multiple occasions and they are very legit. Be careful though, they will definitely sneak up on you!! Stop by and grab one for a beach stroll :)

A really popular seafront restaurant with good Mexican food on the menu. Mariachis is frequently visiting the restaurant. You have to wait in line to have a table, but it is worth it. Put it on the top of your to do list in Mazatlan.

Daniel did it again with a great seaside eating experience. From Carne Asada to 1kg of Spiny Lobster, the food and drink was a 10. That doesn't even mention the complimentary Tequila shooters infused with tropical fruit, stuffed green chilis, or Kahlua and cream night...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

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.

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.

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
