While this place might not exactly have "curb appeal" the locals know what's up. This place is amazing! Tex-Mex and American foods served in a no-frills environment. Their entire menu has stayed the same for years, because the locals love it and we keep coming back! A family owned restaurant with a family-centered feel...you won't be disappointed!

Meals are very reasonable. You get ample portions for the money. Our favorite is the Sancho supreme. No chain restaurant here - locally owned and operated.

HEre you can get both Mexican and American food. Either or both are just as good. The staff is friendly. The prices are competative. The portions are generous. The taste is great

Its a case of white people making mexican food. Slow service. Salsa was basically pace picante in a different bottle. Food took way too long to come out and clearly every ingrediant came out of a can. Will not be going back.

Fast service, great value, best burritos! We eat here often, it's a great place to meet for lunch downtown. We have been eating here for several years and the quality of the food hasn't changed. Service is always great and value is good

Poncho's is nothing fancy yet a good value lunch or dinner. Been in business many years. Not authentic Mexican fare but their own style that has appealed to loyal customers.
