“Talk about your local color!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We went here for a drink after our lunch in Las Tablas because the owner is an expat & we were on a Relocation Tour. This bar/restaurant is outdoors with a metal roof covered in photos of baseball great & other celebrities that the owner has met...think Dennis Rodman & Carmen Electra. The drinks were great & the meno looked fun & fried with burgers & tailgate party types of food. The owner dresses up with an orange wig & face paint & travels around to the baseball games (the #1 sport of Panama) & gets the crowd riled up & rowdy. It is a small town so Karaoke is a major event & Ponchala's has it in spades!

“The Best Hamburger in Panama Bar None!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

If you want a Big, Juicy, Tasty mouthwatering burger, this is THE place. The fries are fresh cut and deep-fried to perfection, the drinks cold and the hot brownie sundae outstanding. You cannot beat Ponchalos for a gut busting delicious burger! All for a ridiculously low price, even for Panama.

“Great Place to eat in Las Tablas, Panama”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

My wife and I met the owner, Jim, in the morning and talked a bit. We decided to return in the evening and we are glad we did. The food was great and Jim likes to talk to his customers. The restaurant is not all that easy to find, as it is an A frame right off the main road into Las Tablas. Ponchalos is known for its hamburgers which will not disappoint. Other types of food are available as well at a decent price.
