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.

Love the chips. They are fresh made and nothing like anything else we've ever had at any other mexican restaurant. The cheese has gotten better through the years. They are well known for their amazing chicken tortilla soup. The fajitas are phenomenal and HUGE. My husband and I usually get the big one and share it.

I've never rated anything excellent, but this place is it. If you go for lunch don't order a big meal because you get the best chicken soup as an appetizer. The chips and salsa were some of the best I've had anywhere in Oklahoma. I got the Gorditas, which you get with three different meats, were small but very filling.... More
