The food was pretty good but our server did everything she could to prevent us from enjoying our meal. She was very rude for no reason.

Love going to El Ponce! It's my go-to place to take visitors. Great food and service. Usually can get a table no problem, although I make a reservation.

Went as soon as they opened at noon on a Saturday. It wasn't very busy so the noise level was low, but there were families meeting there, friends, and so on. I thought the pricing was fair, and the food was well prepared and delicious. I recommend this restaurant and would go again!

Loved this place!! Real Mexican food served by the nicest people. Everything was delicious from the guacamole cheese dip and salsa to the steak fajitas for two which could of fed six! Very accommodating. Refilled drinks. Chips salsa without even asking. Would definitely go back again next trip to Atlanta. Loved how people were Sitting outside and they gave them mexican blankets to wear. Such a nice place.

While we were on the patio they were changing the sign and it was unpleasant and noisy. They really could have done this not during dining hours. Service was slow and if we ordered water it took ten minutes and kind glass showed up .. I would never go back

Went here before the plaza on a Friday night. It was lively. The service was a little slow but it was a busy, Friday night. I got the carnitas and wished they had more seasoning. However, I enjoyed the experience and will jus try something new next time!

My waiter was super awesome and patient with everyone. Tables on patio are too close and crowded. Food is overpriced with smaller portions.

Never have felt more neglected in a restaurant before this experience. Had to get napkins from the bar to clean up a spill and just to use during dinner. Food was good but service or lack there of negated the food. Leaving my house to eat is conducive to wanting others to take care of me and make it an acceptable experience. Our water is clearly in the wrong line of work. Don't know his name bc after he took our order, we never saw him. Won't be back...

The Oaxacan style tamales were excellent (we had the vegetarian), and the spinach salad with corn, shrimp and other goodies was delicious, right down to the home made dressing. The vegetarian tacos were also very tasty. The service was great (our attentive and gracious server was Gaudencio). The restaurant is very casual, family friendly, and a wonderful neighborhood place with very reasonable prices. We definitely plan to return soon!
