Our server was really nice. The food was just ok. We had the chicken fajitas and veggie fajitas. The wraps and plates were nice and warm.... More

The owners are friendly and provide excellent service. The food is exceptional. They make superb chimichangas, enchiladas, burritos, taco salads...And the hot salsa is fabulous.

The food was very, very good. Service was excellent and at the end of the evening the owner came out and serenaded us with his guitar...just perfect. Highly recommend the short drive out of town!

Our meals were also very good and the portions were generous. The fountain soda was flat. The server was attentive. The decor is a little cheesy but food made... More

The food here is very good. Service is spotty, sometimes you get a great server, other times they seem more interested in being on their phones or having conversations with each other. The servers look messy, they should have some type of standard for attire. I used to go here alot, but portions have decreased tremendously and prices continue to... More

My best friend and I were on a road trip to Pennsylvania when we saw a sign for Ponderosa restaurant on the highway. We took the exit into town and found it had been closed. She said that there was a Mexican place just a few minutes out of town, so considering it was Cinco De Mayo, we thought we'd... More

This is a nice, reasonably-priced Mexican restaurant with a wide variety of choices. We have never been disappointed with the quality or service.
