Our service was good. Our beverages were kept full. We were greeted shortly after sitting down. Food fairly quick and served hot. Taco was good. Enchiladas not bad but a little bland. Salsa was good, chips ok. Rice was well cooked. Sopapillas were good.

We have eaten at Popo's numerous times over the past twenty years, and never miss the chance for a meal there if we are travelling anywhere in the area. Hands down the best homeade salsa anywhere!

I stopped by because of other positive reviews. It is located a couple of blocks off the main drag. The dining area is clean but not polished. The fried tortilla chips were dense so it gave them the texture of a thicker chip. I ordered...More

I go to Popo's anytime I'm in town, and I tell people about it all the time. It's my favorite, and the salsa is the best. I will say that service (servers, not kitchen) this time was a little slower...maybe they have new staff. The...More

My daughter-in-law and I were at Popo's Monday night and we were quite disappointed. We ordered the same thing but they put red sauce on hers instead of green. I said I wanted my guacamole in a dish on the side. When they brought our...More
