good food

Good food but a bit Americanized for me. Service was good considering it was a busy night and the balance of waitstaff to patrons seemed off

Been there a couple times. It is so dark and dirty. Decided to enjoy outside drinks and apps still dirty but not as dark. Appetizers fairly tasteless and drinks average. The menus are gross and sticky. They also allow smoking outside which was blowing in our directions. I can't comment on the dinners or lunches because we did not eat... More

I have been going to this little place in Vernon for 5 years. Yes the booths have seen better days. Sure they could be more tidy. It is probably the best Tex/Mex place in the area. Notice I didnt say it was a mexican resturant. the Chips are solid but the salsa is where its at. The best freshly chopped... More

My girlfriend and I met another couple out for dinner and drinks. Fantastic margaritas, very large and potent. Dave's Wings were excellent and the food was good. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be going back.

Last minute decision turned out great. Margaritas were very good. Quesadilla was very tasty. Shrimp fajitas were excellent as were the carna asada. Well worth the trip.

We have been going to Poncho Loco since 2009. we now live in Saratoga Springs NY and drive down there to go to Poncho Loco. The staff is great and food is out of this world! Very authentic Mexican. They have awesome Ultimate Margaritas too!

Peach Margarita was tasteless, chicken flatutas has no salsa and over cooked, chicken taco was tasteless and overcooked. I used the cheese whiz version of queso on chicken. Hard taco shells stale, pork was horrible tasted funny, beef was acceptable. My bf bent his fork on the burrito tough and contained zucchini. Yes people I said zucchini. Desserts were acceptable...

Several months since I have visited but we stopped for the one time because the parking lot is always busy. The restaurant itself seems to have been converted from a home which presents a somewhat clunky atmosphere. The food was good but very bland in flavor, filling but not exceptional enough for the price. Seems to make lots of people... More

Driving by you would never know this place has the best Margarita's and excellent selection of freshly made Mexican food. Great place to have fun and kick back with a group of friends. Atmosphere very casual and the bell will always ring when sizzling fajitas as served. My favorite is Dave's Wings, sweet and spicy treat.
