Ponchalos move north to Chitre a while back but it is a great place for lunch or dinner. A little rough around the edges, it's a little (by American standards) open air Sports Bar. The owner, Jim, is very interesting to talk to and the...More

I ordered the 1/2 pound burger with white cheese, lettuce, tomato and medium rare. The burger was well done and the bun was cold. The tried the sister restaurant in Chitre with similiar results.

It was ok, but just. My friends had the hamburgers and they were fine with them. I can't say the same about the chili dog or chili fries.

Casual dining and lots of fun. They also have a restaurant in Los Santos that we frequent more often. Ice cold beer in frosty glasses was a big hit with our hot and tired family, My husband likes the burgers, I like the chicken sandwiches...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We will be flying in to the Tocumen International Airport the day before we are to check in to Melia. What is the best way to get from Panama City to Melia and/or Colon? Is some sort of public transportation available? Taxis? Is it drivable by ourselves? Approximately how long will it take?
