Chefs Petra Flores and Raul Soriano

We have always been listed consistently as one of the top 10 restaurants in Cabo San Lucas.  Featuring the largest collection of tequilas to be found in any restaurant in the world (over 500 labels), our selections can’t be beat.  We have chefs from all over Mexico, allowing us to feature some of the finest cooking Mexico has to offer, whether it be from Puebla, Oaxaca, Sonora, Guerrero, Mexico City, the Yucatan Peninsula, or our own special Cabo specialties.  Our fish and seafood is fresh and delicious, and our Mexican kitchen features traditional, but healthy Mexican specialties such as tortilla soup, chile rellenos, carne asada, tacos, chamorro, and oaxacan tamales with mole sauce.  Our ingredients are delivered daily to us from organic local sources, and we use only the freshest, most natural ingredients in our cooking.

John and Mary started the restaurant over 23 years ago.  Their philosophy is to offer the tastiest food, in a beautiful environment, which appeals to all of the senses.  They are retired marketing experts from the US, who brought their love of Mexican culture, including the amazing tequilas, to share with guests.  The waiters have been voted over and over again the most knowledgeable, friendly, yet low key serve people in Los Cabos.  Most of them have been with the restaurant for over 15 years, and know personally our loyal customers.  John decided to learn all that he could about tequila when we opened the restaurant 23 years ago, and has been awarded the prestigious designation of Ambassador de Tequila from Herradura.  He has traveled the world giving seminars and tasting on tequila, and Pancho’s is famous for its personalized tequila tasting class, where you receive a diploma!

We are very traditional.  We try to always hire as many people as we can who are natives of the Baja, who know the culture, and who share it with our clients.  A laid back, but beautiful experience awaits you, not only with the food and beverage, but with the beautiful tablecloths, fabulous and colorful murals.  A more colorful restaurant you will never find.

How to make a memorable experience of dining.  Great music:  that means a 3 piece romantic trio playing nightly, and when they aren’t on duty, only low key, and soft Mexican music playing in the background.  A very colorful environment, with hand painted murals on all of the walls, brightly colored and layered tablecloths and napkins, candles lit every evening.  Great for families as well as romantic couples, Pancho’s is often chosen as the perfect location for a special event, such as a birthday party, or a rehearsal dinner before a wedding.  Groups of up to 100 love Pancho’s for its coziness, for the friendliness of the waiters, for the delicious, frosty margaritas, and for the love that you experience.
