J.T. and I were downtown in early December, and we stopped by Ponchos Mexican Restaurant (827 Denman Street) for a quick bite.
It was a Thursday evening and the place was packed – we waited about 10 minutes to get a table.
J.T. knew what he wanted the minute we sat down – he was ready to order a chicken burrito right away – so I ordered a Beef Burrito without really looking at the menu, so that he didn’t have to wait longer.
We were given some complimentary chips and salsa when we were waiting for the food. All in all, a pretty ordinary place. I would go back to Mexi Cali on Dunbar, but not to Ponchos again. There are many cuisines on Denman, so it’s probably worthwhile to check out other places when we’re in the area again in the future.
