I had the privilege of living in an apartment within walking distance to this place for a year... had MANY a lunch there. Amazing tacos and burritos at a reasonable price. A few tables for a sit down meal, but I've always thought of them as a take out place: Go in hungry, leave victorious.

Office orders for lunch delivery on occasion. We ordered today via Grubhub. Food arrived very quickly, about 10 minutes sooner than estimated. Fresh, hot, tasty. Reasonable prices.

For a city with no many Mexican restaurants, this will do for a walk away. They are efficient, provide generous portions and have easy parking. You watch them make your burrito as you select the contents. Pretty darn good for the northeast.

The burritos are huge at Ponchitos, whether you get the regular or the super-burrito, they are equally gigantic. The chicken is hit or miss, sometimes it is tender and has good flavor and other times it's a bit tough and plain tasting. The pork is delicious. The wait staff can get distracted by the S.U. games, so better not to... More

I was in the area on business looking for lunch. This place came very highly recommended, I ordered a chicken burrito. This burrito was loaded with everything I like about mexican food, including guacamole. Although I'm a little guy and don't need a huge meal, I enjoyed this burrito so much I ate the whole thing. Very cheap also, you... More

The food is great, the delivery at lunch time is very fast. The value is exceptional. I LOVE the portion size. I think I have tried almost everything on the menu.

Ponchintos gives you lots of food and you get your money's worth. The downside is that the food as displayed behind the counter is much less than appealing. If I hadn't eaten there and lived to tell the story I could have been scared away.

Fresh ingredients, the chicken is the best andvis worth the price. The tacos are pretty good too. Great place for a quick lunch.

Worst ever. Stopped in a hotel and got food delivered. Cold, no taste at all. They only think: Size matters. They dont deserve to call their food Mexican!

Ponchitos Taqueria is nothing fancy, basically a counter and a few tables. The tacos are great and they are large. They are also inexpensive. You have your choice of ground beef, carnita (pork), grilled vegetables, cubed steak or chicken and choices of toppings including hot sauce, sour cream & guacamole. The hard tacos are served on two freshly cook corn... More
