One cannot beat the authentic Mexican food here, even in Mexico Service is excellent and friendly. Atmosphere is fun and interesting due to being at airport.

After hearing about Enrique's from a number of people, I gave it a try. It has become a favorite. Let's start with the chips: they are homemade, and somehow are "poofy". Never seen anything like it, and they're delicious and worth the $3. My favorite item on the menu is the "build your own enchilada" because they offer red or... More

Let's get the first thing out of the way; the chips and salsa were good and different, the $3.00 cost for it was on the high side considering that once the chips got cold they became almost nasty. The pollo loco soup that came with the lunch special was great. I could make a meal out of that alone. The... More

While visiting Ponca City, we ate at Enrique's based on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. Great food, neat location, and maybe the best salsa I've ever had. Watching an airplane taxi on the nearby runway added to the experience.

We've been to Enrique's several times when we visit Ponca City and they never disappoint. They are consistently great! We love the puffy tortilla chips and their queso is unlike anywhere else, perfect flavor. We have had just about everything on the menu, but this visit we enjoyed beef tacos that were delicious and chicken fajitas that were very juicy... More

People fly in from miles around to eat at Enrique's. The restaurant is located inside the Ponca City airport. It is consistently good food. Their "chips" are different than any other place in that they are fresh fried flour tortillas. So most of them puff up. It makes them great for cracking them open and scooping up salsa or cheese....

Enrique's is one of only a couple places in town that people from outside of Ponca City enjoy going to eat at. Although a little pricy, the food is quite good if you don't mind a little grease. The chips here are unique, being "puffy" and come with a small charge although are freshly made to order. The heat level... More

I've never had a bad experience here. Some folks I've taken there have complained about paying for chips vs the home made fresh chips they offer, but those are the same people that drive a 20 year old Yugo and shop at 2nd hand stores. Like has been posted previously, you can order your chips the way you want them.... More

Stopped based in TA reviews. Arrived around 7pm on a Saturday. Most everything we ordered was old and cold. Our chips were soggy. Our tacos had not one iota of heat in them. The only thing that was warm was the tamale. Obviously everything else was made hours before and no one on the kitchen staff could be bothered to... More
