Good fly in / drive in Mexican

I've done a couple of month's of flight training in Ponca City, and this restaurant being right on the field is really handy. I'm not the world's best Mexican fan, but this is above average on my scale. Great soup. Can really be busy almost every noon, so arrive before 12. A good many area... read more

I always get the Chips and Salsa and the Shrimp Tacos. Chips aren't like what you are used to though! They are deep-fried fluffy "chips" that are perfect for scooping your salsa into. Even their salsa is different! It's more roasted in flavor and spicy. Some other great dishes are the fish tacos, pollo loco soup, fajitas, taquitos, tamales, chicken... More

We were looking forward to trying this place but we were disappointed today at lunch. The waiter served us 2 bowls of salsa but then told us we had to pay for the chips. The chips were puffy but greasy and soggy! The soup that came with the lunch special was the best part of the meal. My wife had... More

Service was good. Food was good. You could watch planes take off and land. Lots of menu choices. No complimentary queso.

I love Mexican food, but I'm picky! Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised when my brother and I found Enrique's in Ponca City, OK. I thought we'd driven by it, but Kevn spotted a little sign at the airport, and lo and behold...there it was...in the terminal. Make sure you keep a sharp lookout, or you might miss the place! It's... More

This is a great place. They are located at the airport, food is fresh and certainly enough to fill you up. Fresh soup every day. But the real treat are the "chips". Deep fried and soft, but crunchy outside. Just delicious! Anything on the lunch menu is excellent. One of the cleanest and friendliest places I've been to.

This is a place where you order Mexican food. Nothing else. Their chips are very unique, more like deep-fried dough. They are greasy, but very tasty. Worth to pay extra for the chips. The restaurant's lunch special comes with a bowl of soup, which goes so well with the chips. Strongly recommend.

After hearing much hype from family-friends about how good this place was, I was looking forward to visiting. Not impressed with food or service. Only thing impressive was waiter remembered all the order without writing down. However, I never got my green sauce. Something hopefully less bland than the red sauce. Wife got guacamole salad. Much too much garlic in... More

About 15 years ago my wife and I stopped here after a wedding. My initial impressions weren't favorable. I remember big crowds and how upset my stomach was after eating their greasy appetizers. I'm usually willing to give a place a second chance, even if it's in a different decade. Recently, we passed through Ponca City on the last leg... More

We have eaten here many times and always enjoyed the food. The salsa has great flavor and their chips are different then any we have ever had. Go there every time we are in town.
