We had many meals here while in Bucerias; breakfast, lunch and dinner, and everything, and we mean everything, was superb! Pancho uses many of his Abuela's recipes for his food, and there was always a special for dinner in addition to the regular menu. The flan was the best I've ever tasted, perfectly firm, and with a delicious sauce to... More

Poncho's is my "go to" place for food whenever I'm in Bucerias. His prices are well below other restaurants in the "very good" category. Very friendly staff. I will continue to eat at Ponchos. Breakfasts are exceptional !!

Excellent food, outstanding value, and Poncho is a doll. The customer always comes first. Physical plant a bit rough but the value and service compensate. Family run.

We first met Poncho at the Red Apple, then went looking for him and his restaurant when we found he had moved. His food is authentic and very reasonably priced and his whole family is often at the restaurant (except for the sons at university) and they are all friendly and welcoming, even the little kids. If what you want... More

Last year we ate at El Reconcito de Poncho for the first time. The food was very good and, thanks to some inquisitive Canadians, we learned a lot about Poncho and his six children as he answered the many questions the Canucks asked. This year there were no Canadians, but we got to meet Poncho's eleven month old daughter and... More

Poncho and his family are very welcoming. The restaurant is unique, and the food is good. Prices are fair. We always eat there several times while in Bucerias

I've been visiting Bucerias several times every year since 1995. Ponchos is relatively "New" for me. The food is Very Good. ! Portions are more than adequate. And prices are Low. I always visit Ponchos for Breakfast. His Chicken Chillaquiles are un-beatable in my opinion. REAL Mexican food. With generous portions.!! Unless his business changes......... I would continue to rate... More

The TA address of this restaurant is correct, but the TA map is incorrect. The restaurant is located one block north of the church (Nuestra Senora de la Paz) on Mexico Avenue in the heart of downtown Bucerias. As the implies, Pancho is the owner of this restaurant. Pancho is a very friendly, attentive host. By the time my spouse... More

My husband and I were shopping in Bucerias and were greeted by Pancho outside of his restaurant when we decided to try it. We were delighted with the ambiance- a little garden-like setting ,so pleasant! Food and service were excellent! The guacamole is some of the best I have eaten; my fajitas were very tasty, and my husband's enchiladas verde... More

I have known Poncho for years. When I get off a long plane ride with a very early departure, Poncho at the Red Apple was the first person I sought out, as the place was close to where I was staying. I was crushed last year to find he was no longer there, but finally a member of the staff... More
