Don't walk by this restaurant , it might not be the fanciest place to eat but the quality of the food will make up for anything it lacks in ambience . I had one of the best meals of the trip here, chiles Rellenos and fanta. I will be returning here.

Eager, friendly young server was capable and efficient. We were the only two diners in the place, but that quickly changed when two large families with boisterous toddlers came in. He had things under control, even when the grandpa of that group insisted on shouting in bad Spanish, and changing the order three times. I went here for the sole... More

There are actually two Poc Chuc restaurants across from each other with the same menu, but we like the one that is mid block on the west side of Juarez better. We've had several meals there over the years and enjoyed each one. The Poc Chuc itself (roast pork) was good but I liked other things on the menu even... More

My friends and I specifically returned here, after a great first visit two years ago. It was as friendly and authentic as before, and we really enjoyed our food. I hope that, just because they've been "discovered," they don't change what obviously works....just being their authentic selves. I love Poc Chuk!

We ate here twice for breakfast and once for supper. The food was authentic Mexican and tasty. The prices are reasonable and a bargain in a restaurant environment where most are overpriced. On our last day we asked if they could have some sandwiches prepared for 3:30 to take on the plane. They had them ready for us and they... More

Very nice place to get authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price. Staff and owners are attentive to your needs and want to ensure you are pleased with service. Banos could be improved upon - toilet seat would be a wonderful addition!

Don't bother with the meals, the Tortas on the back page of the menu are very good and only 25 pesos each. My favorite is the pork sandwich but the chicken and Cuban were very tasty also! A must visit for a quick inexpensive lunch!

We have eaten at this restaurant many times in the past and on our current vacation. The food has always been great. We are also especially fond of our waitress, Guadalupe, who always greets customers with a smile and provides excellent service. This restaurant has great Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend you give it a try.
