Excellent food. Unpretentious place - just order and eat. In my experience, the hole-in-the-wall restaurants, especially ethnic, are usually the best, and this is no exception. Eat at the counter instead of a table.

Poncho's is one of those little places you really have to know about or you will miss out on this wonderful Mexican food. Everything is made from scratch and if you are in a hurry I wouldn't recommend it. But if you have the time everything on the menu is worth sampling. My personal favorite is the chicken quesadilla, although... More

OK so I read the reviews and decided to make a visit to Poncho's. Food and service were first rate. Prices are very good for ample portions served. No nachos! Oh well just proves the place is authentic. It is located on Artic Ave. I visited early in the afternoon. It isn't a very good neighborhood so I wouldn't recommend... More

Just ate from this place and it's good. I had the carne asada burrito. What sets this place apart is the fresh tortilla that they make to order from burritos to tacos. Only complaint is the price. 3 tacos for 12. Burritos 11 and so on. Gotta give them a try.

Place isn't much but the food was great. Ordered 3 enchilado tacos but they were really six. I was so full! My husband ordered the guarachas and he couldn't finish his food either! We aren't ones to leave any good behind but we just couldn't stuff any more of this greatness down our throats. Definitely recommend to come when you... More

Previously reviewed and last week tried some sopes and I think it will be my go-to alongside their tacos. They also carry jarrito drinks with some hard to find flavors like tamarindo and guava. There were liter bottles and the small glass ones. I ordered for myself and my boyfriend in Spanish and the lady behind the counter was super... More

The ladies working here were so nice. It helps if you can speak some Spanish, the menu is in English but the people working here understand Spanish better. Ordered some tacos el pastor, my boyfriend ordered a burrito and quesadilla. I tried some of his food as well and all of it was amazing! Real, authentic tacos and really good... More
