Fun atmosphere, affordable and casual. I had the chimichanga platter with beef, rice and beans.
See the new DVD releases. For proof that the original is green see the link below and hear it in Clint's own words. I was fortunate enough to actually see the original poncho once in Carmel when Clint loaned it to a friend to display in his Mexican resturant for a while.
Needless to say, I took several mental notes. I took several photos. See the link above. Eastwood never washed or cleaned it during the making of all three films which give the outer poncho color a more olive color! This was done with Eastwood's original These ponchos require over 20 solid hours of work to get each completed. They are manufactured to last a lifetime! I highly recommend the green corn tamales, which are large and soft with just a bit of corn kernel sweetness.
The best place to get a frozen strawberry daiquiri and frozen margaritas. Pollo Fundido was mouth watering!! Salsa and chips are always 5 stars!! It's juicy machaca beef with a thin, light, and tasty green tomatillo sauce.
It is wrapped into a flour tortilla, then topped with red enchilada sauce and melted cheese with rice on the side. You may as well ask to buy a bag of them to take home. The salsa is best served like they do it and it is spectacular. Not too hot, nice tang and flavor. We regularly come to this location and the staff is always so friendly and the food is always guaranteed delicious!!
Go check it out! Salsa and guacamole is awesome. Food, drinks and service have never been a problem here. I highly recommend Poncho's, we haven't found a single place that beats it yet. It also has a great little neighborhood bar in the back of the restaurant. The Pollo Fundido is always great! The chorizo cheese crisp is a must! Not to mention the Mexican pizza with red or green Chile is fire!!!!! It's basically a chicken chimichanga enchilada style.
The sauce that smothers the chimichanga was the most delicious sauce I've ever tasted. I took a bite and couldn't stop eating. The staff is fast efficient and extremely pleasant.
