Pretty good eats. Authentic Mexican and not over priced for the area. Get the white cheese dip with your chips, you won't regret it. The service is very good and they have outside seating with sun or shade. Lunch has a buffet that is very good. I have never gotten a bad meal here.

They serve a lunch buffet 11-2. The parking lot is always full at lunch and dinner. It is a favorite of the locals. Good food, too.

When I entered, I was greeted by a young female with my "favorite" hostess question of "Just one?" Yes, I'm travelling on business and there's just one of me.

While in Ponca city on business, we frequented el patio for dinner. Great food all around, great staff, and the margaritas are awesome. I wish that I would have tried them sooner.

They have a great buffet for the noon and evening meal. Bathrooms are not the cleanest. The prices are good and the food was excellent!

The lunch buffet includes chile rellanos, tacos, fajita meat, guacamole, enchiladas, and more. It is hot, quick and filling. Service is good. Price is reasonable.
