We used to love Poppo's out on Anna Maria Island. That's the original and is still the best. The store on Manatee of course has lost the ambiance of the island, but also the laid back ordering and service. While the food is still pretty good, you now feel like you need to be some kind of organic guru to quickly move through the ordering line without feeling/looking completely out of place and getting the stink eye from the staff. However, the honey-lime slaw CANNOT be beat. It is always amazing! And their chips are the very best around. Also, baby bowls are the way to go --- it's still plenty of food!

Don't let the limited menu sway you, this place offers very high quality, fresh and healthy Mexican tacos, burritos and salad bowls. Prices are modest for what you get, atmosphere is pleasant, clean and comfortable

This small place has a rustic tex-mex atmosphere, very casual, cafeteria style service. We got a bowl of assorted taco ingredients to take home and then added our own mashed avocado and some sauce we had on hand. (since they charge extra for guacamole). Made for nice dinner for two with enough left over for another meal for one. The lady serving us was very pleasant. When she rang up the tab, it showed a touch screen that allowed for punching in various tip percentages. Very convenient. We got some brown rice for me and white rice for my wife, and we opted for the pulled pork. Made for a good Sunday dinner (completed by a cold beer from the fridge at home)

We had to wait for the tortillas & chips to be made but they were fresh & worth the wait. Everything we tried was so good!

I have eaten here frequently. Always go for the big bowl, nearly all the protein choices are good except for the chicken.
