Good mexican food that me and my friend Simon enjoyed reminded us of home in the UK just bigger portions and tones more cheese!

“Dog food would taste better”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 via mobile

If you like canned refried beans and Old El Paso bagged rice this place is for you. If you want anything remotely like real Mexican food (which is not made with cheddar cheese folks) steer clear. In fact, stay away if you seek anything that is fresh or flavorful. Yes, the portions are huge, but they are expensive and downright disgusting.

The two positives here were that the establishment was clean, and the server was excellent. Perhaps the previous reviewer was right in that its a good place to go drunk?

“When Amnesia Sets In...”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

I have a couple friends that like to grab a bite at Poncho and Lefty's for lunch. When amnesia sets in, I agree to join them here. There is nothing authentic about their mexican cooking. They use copious amounts of cheese and filler to mask their lack of flavor. If you like large portions and quantity is more important than quality, this may be the place for you. However, if you are a true lover of mexican flavors, steer clear...

“Good Mexican for this area”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Food is good but not great. Prices very reasonable. It does get crowded on the week-ends and the bar is humming. Noise level is not too bad for such a large place. Try it
