Good, but a tad bland

We had the friendliest server on earth. And the food came SUPER fast. It was a good meal, but I found it was tad bland for Mexican food. The portion sizes were perfect, and it was a really good price for the amount of food we got!

The best macho nachos you'll ever eat plus everything else on the menu! Not only that, but the staff are wonderful too! Always my first choice when going out to eat in the area!

When I go to a Mexican restaurant I expect Mexican food. This place is more of American with a Mexican appearance. The food is average. Taco bell next door might be better.

I had a hamburger which was very well done and tasted great. My husband had a BBQ salad which he enjoyed very much.

Husband and I both had the fajitas because it was the special. Very delicious. Chips and salsa also tasty. Kids had the kid taco and fries. Taco was good, but they only got about 10 fries on their plate.

There's always a lot of energy at Poncho's and Lefty's. The servers are pleasant. They always greet you with chips, salsa and a smile. The food is decent. I think the fajitas are very good.

We have only a few meals that we like here but, we always have the Garlic Mashed Potatoes. No one makes them better. The food is average to good. Prices are about average. No bad experiences.

Poncho's is a fun place for some Mexican Fare. When you are seated you will receive Chips and Salsa (you can ask for hotter). They have some great early evening Happy Hour Food Specials- Nacho's, Tacos... My favorite is the Chicken Tortilla Soup.

We tried the $9.95 all can eat Fajitas. Unfortunately the chicken was really dry. We even questioned whether they had just warmed up some frozen pre-cooked Tyson Fajita chicken strips. The free salsa that came with the chips was like thick tomato sauce. They would do well to replace it with the salsa that came with the fajitas, which at... More

We come here a few times per year (especially for the free birthday meal) I love the Rosa's Chimichanga...but I prefer the white sauce over red or green. I dislike that it's over $2 to substitute it. Good chips & Salsa!
