Excellent food and service!

We visit this restaurant every time we come to Nuevo Vallarta -- for breakfast and dinner. Poncho is a fabulous host and the food is excellent -- from the omelettes to the steak burritos and coconut shrimp. Definitely one of our favorite spots.

We went to Bucerias to get off our resort and change things up, and I'm so happy we stumbled upon this little place. A nice quiet break from the market... The food was amazing, and the service was great. We went back twice!

My wife and I went to El Rinconcito de Poncho after reading about it on Tripadvisor. We were looking for out of the way places and this was one of the ones we wanted to try. The cab driver did not know where it was so we had to tell him how to get there (just past El Centro on... More

We were introduced to this placeby a seasoned Bucerias restaurant guide. The best margaritas in Bucerias, with food to match. The tortilla soup was great, coconut shrimp was fabulous, desert worth the calories. Well worth the reasonable prices. Poncho and his family do the cooking and serving, very,very friendly

This is the second time that we have visited Poncho at his restaurant. The last time was two years ago and he still remembered us when we arrived there. He has a great menu and is very accommodating. If there is something that you are craving, all you have to do is ask and he will do his best to... More

The moment we arrived at the restaurant the waiter was attentive and allowed us to choice where we sat. He was very helpful in explaining the meals and... More

We just got back from eating at Poncho's. It was our first time eating at his new location but we had eaten a couple times a few years ago at his old location. He remembered us and also recognized that the family that was with us was "new." Our meals were all excellent (I had the chicken enchiladas with green... More

In the heart of Bucerias this is a gem if you are after hearty breakfast. Great omelets and egg dishes. My favorite is the Mexican Omelette which is a meat lovers choice that comes with hash browns toast and re-fried beans. Good American brewed coffee and smoothies and veggie juices.

If you don't see it on his menu .... ask. He makes a great Chicken Cordon Blue and an awesome Clubhouse sandwich .... neither one of them are on his menu, but should be. Excellent value, and one of the lowest priced margaritas! Awesome Breakfasts, and lots to eat.

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
