First time at this restaurant and I enjoyed it a lot. Margaritas were fantastic and the staff was very attentive. I can't wait to go back .... As soon as possible!!!!

We visit this local establishment on occasion over the last >15 years.
It has changed ownership several times.
Upstairs bar busy in summer.

Chips and salsa provided but you have to request spicy salsa.
Menu typical Tex-Mex.
Margaritas are killer.
For a treat sit outside in the summer.
I hate the valet parking. It's casual Mexican and 20 feet to park your car.

Went here about 2 years ago, and had a nice meal. Yesterday's dinner was mediocre. Fajita's were bland, with tough chicken. My wife's Arroz Con Pollo was not great. Cute locale, but poor food and so-so service don't make up for it. We get better food at On The Border in Jericho/Hicksville for half the price!

We hadn’t eaten here in years as there are other Mexican food restaurants we can walk to that we go to more often. Poco Loco had a Groupon so we thought we would branch out and try it again. Oh boy how sorry we were. The service was terrible. They sat us down and provided water, we thought started great. But then we noticed every other table getting chips and salsa. We thought maybe you pay extra for it or they just didn’t get to us yet. We gave our order to the waiter and he fairly promptly retuned with the beers. We had an idea from the get go that this was not going to be good. He was not Mr. Personality but we thought no big deal we are not looking to chat with him. We continued to wait for the chips and then after our appetizer (which I will get to next) we asked and they brought it to us. Why should we have had to ask? Now about the appetizers, we got a House Salad (Ensalada De La Casa) which was large enough to share and good. We also got Empanadas with Chicken which were terrible. I sat there wondering if they were bought at Costco. They tasted terrible, were over fried and just bad. For dinner we ordered Tacos El Carbon and they delivered Fajita, ok a mistake. The tacos were terrible. We make better ones home. The beans were disgusting and the rice had no flavor at all. Now for the bill. We get the bill and we are charged for Fajita. As we are looking all over for the waiter, did I mention he never came over not once during the meal to see if we needed or wanted anything. Another person comes over and brings Guacamole asking if we ordered that - no we did not. Do they know who ordered anything? We see the waiter on the computer most of the evening, doing what I cannot say maybe Facebook. Before we say anything to him about the bill, he just comes over and hands us another bill saying this one is right. No nothing, apology nothing. We pay and leave and find him outside leaning on a car texting or something on his phone. Thank goodness we had the Groupon so we didn’t waste so much money. Never ever will come back here, the food stinks and the staff is terrible and the prices too high.
