Enrique's Restaurant

Reviewed By nowincolorado - Colorado Springs, CO

I am not sure why there are so many great reviews. We didn't like this restaurant.
The food is expensive.

They don't give you complimentary chips and salsa like most Mexican restaurants do. You have to buy them. We did buy them and were not given regular tortilla chips but instead their homemade chips that were puffy and chewy - not good at all.

We have no plans to eat here again.

Rusty Barrell Supper Club

Reviewed By 4fromkansas - kansas

Great steaks, very friendly staff, and unique place to eat. It's hard to find, go to the back of the strip mall and where a small building stands separate between the two you will find it. like an old speakeasy you ring the bell and...More4fromkansas, Thanks so much for dinning with us at the Rusty Barrell Supper Club. Your 5 star rating and your kind words are much appreciated. We hope to see you again the next time you are in Ponca City. Best regards, Rick Hancock Proprietor

El Patio Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Jason L - Ponca City, Oklahoma

The staff at El Patio are always very friendly and accommodating. I've never had a bad meal here and I've eaten here well over 75 times. I love it! The queso is delicious and they DO NOT serve watered down drinks. You always get your money's worth.

Taco Stop

Very small hole in the wall place, but had very good inexpensive food.

Reviewed By Walldo - Tulsa, Oklahoma

I had a Taco Salad, on a recommendation from a co-worker. The taste was very good, the taco sauce was outstanding. The place was clean and the employees were polite and courteous. It is definitely a place I will return and eat at again.

Garrett Wrangler Restaurant

Reviewed By Okie_Pam - Ponca City, Oklahoma

It seemed that a lot of the food was PRE-prepared (from a box) rather than being fresh. The exception are the omelettes. I have to say, mine was really, really good. So if you want a good breakfast or a "breakfast for supper" meal, I would recommend the omelettes, although the biscuits were just so-so. We will try it again.

Dixie Dog Drive-In

Reviewed By Michael W

Not a bad burger in a pinch, especially if you are tired of the big chain fast burger joints. It is a welcome change, and their malts are excellent. They server quite a variety of items and it is always cooked fresh on order. The only reason for the 4, instead of 5, stars is the sodas. A little more syrup would be great. Car hops take the order and bring the food to you. No speakers here!

Sakura

Reviewed By Sara S - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Sakura is the only non-buffet Asian restaurant in Ponca City. Food is good and tasty, but quality of service needs huge improvement. First time there, the waitress insisted that both of my credit cards got rejected and there was absolutely nothing wrong with the restaurant's credit card machine. Guess what, there was indeed something wrong with the machine. Second time, the waitress only appeared when our food was ready. None of us even got our drink refilled. But I know I will return as this is the only place in the area that serves good sushi, calamari, tempura, etc.

Danny's Barbeque

Reviewed By Lynn W - Oklahoma

We decided to eat lunch here thinking it was still Head Country. When we arrived, we discovered the name had changed. I had the brisket plate with beans and potato salad. My friend had the rib plate with fries and beans. The food was great - tender - and the sauce was still Head Country, with 3 different varieties. The total for our food was about $30.

Los Portales

Reviewed By aahamfam - Ponca City, Oklahoma

I LOVE this place! They have expanded their lunch buffet to Sundays. My family and I always get our fill. They offer white queso on the buffet. The Chile rellanos are wonderful. The shrimp cevice is amazing. The only complaint I have is the salsa is not quality controlled- which reinforces the fact it is homemade.
