I had a terrible experience at Poncho. I went there for dinner. The place was pretty empty, only three other tables were occupied. The service was horrible. At the table next to mine there were six people that were ordering a lot of alcohol so the waiter decided to concentrate on that table and ignored my table completely. Just to... More

Ponchos very possibly serves the best steak I have eaten. It can get very busy and I have once waited a very, very long time to be served when in a big group but I will keep going back.
