Made an unscheduled stop in Ponca City. As I walked into the terminal building, I walked in Enrigue's - literally. Crowed with friendly, hungry locals - always a good sign - I slide into the wait list while I closed out my paperwork for the aircraft. A long day's hunger was teased with the pleasant and delightful aromas of food.... More

Like most good restaurants in Ponca City, strange location. Best Mexican I have had in town so far. Friendly staff. Good homemade chips. Can't expect high end dining in Ponca.

We had reservations for 18 and we showed up at the time we were scheduled to be there; unfortunately the hostess did not have us on the schedule but quickly accomodated us and did so with a smile. We had been told the chips and dip were incredible (but not free) and so were the orange sopapillas (dessert). The chips... More

I have eaten here twice now and have enjoyed the view--the restaurant looks out over the Ponca City airport. It is a nice meal to fly in and enjoy, but it is also always packed this locals. Keeping in mind that it is off the beaten path, that is an excellent recommendation in and of itself. One of the things... More

We had dinner here a few times during the past few months and fi nd Enrique's to be a different kind of Mexican restaurant. Atmosphere is nice and service is good. In my opinion the food is generally ok but not always what I expect in a good Mexican restaurant. A perfect example of what I mean is the "chips"... More

We lived in Ponca for many years and this is absolute best Mexican food anywhere. The selections are phenomenal. We always try to get at least one meal when we are back for a visit. This visit was not exception. An added bonus - Located at the Ponca City Airport, it's fun to sit and watch the small planes come... More

The chips are amazing! Food is very good. There is usually a wait, but totally worth it! Again, TRY THE CHIPS!

If you are a fan of Mexican food you will not be sorry you went to Enrique's. They make their own Chips and Salsa. I have never had anything I didn't like.

I've eaten here many times even though I'm not a huge fan of Mexican food. Enrique's is the best! Their homemade chips are unlike any others and even though they are rather greasy they are absolutely delicious. My favorite meal is the Nachos Supreme from the appetizer selection. The portions are huge and it is fun to watch the airplanes... More

This restaurant is located inside the Ponca City Airport. People have stopped here on flights for many years just to eat. Food is very inexpensive and portions are large. Not unusual to note that people from different towns come here to eat because of its quality.
