Despite the mediocre reviews, we found this place to be more than adequate. You get good service from the one waitress, and the food is plentiful. Don't pass this place up.

Stopped going and will not be back. Service is terrible and the food has become the same. Last visit wife had hair in her food and I had a rock in the beans. Not going back

We took the word of locals over the reviews here and tried Poncho's tonight. It's not a fancy place but the food was delicious and the service was great. We especially enjoyed the rice, beans and freshly made, hot flour tortillas. We had crunchy tacos and cheese enchiladas which were tasty and filling. Overall a authentic experience at a great...

The chips were stale AND greasy. You can tell a lot about a Mexican restaurant by their chips. The restaurant was not very clean at least in the dining area. Typical cardboard tortillas. Beans were clumped. Sausage was crumbled Jimmy Dean style. .... Hold the freaking presses! The cook just put a can of Raid bug killer in the order... More

Attentive service. Clean restaurant. Free chips and salsa. Ordered and loved the cheese enchiladas! Great prices. Fast service. Looked like everyone was a local. We plan to go back to this place.

Not a bad place to eat at, but not great. My wife, kids and I ordered the tacos tapatios plate and it was okay. It wasn't all that, but yet it was good enough for us to say we'd come back and we'd probably order the same thing again. This place could use an upgrade or two.

My husband is working in Del Rio for a few months so we are trying out all the local restaurants. This is the second time I have eaten here and I wanted my husband to try it. We started with guacamole and chips. The waitress asked tomatoes onions and peppers. We said yes and they make it all fresh as... More

Is there a caste system in wait staff? Are wait staff tainted if they must bus a table because no busboys showed up for work that day? Ponchos is # 23 on Trip Advisor reviews for Del Rio and was conveniently located right by Highway 90. Big mistake to pick a restaurant based on proximity to where you are in... More
