We were able to walk to El Poncho from our Holiday Inn Express Hotel. We got our food very quickly. It was your standard Mexican fare. All of our dishes were good although a little high in the sodium content. I recommend the Special Bonito,...More

I ordered chicken, vegetables and beans. The food was fresh and tasty. The service was great. For lunch hour the food came out super fast. The prices were reasonable as well.

In terms of Mexican restaurants in the U.S, they tend to not be fully authentic, and the offerings seem to be and taste the same. To me, what differentiated El Poncho is the customer service. I went with a large party, and they treated us...More
