If you are in Baxter and in the mood for some great Mexican food, then drive right on by Poncho & Lefty’s. I am a huge fan of Mexican food and I was definitely not impressed.
They started the meal with chips and salsa – I thought the salsa was okay but the chips were flavorless. The chips looked store bought rather than the homemade looking (and tasting) ones you tend to get at most Mexican restaurants.
We ordered Mac & Cheese from the kids menu for my daughter and it looked like runny Kraft Mac & Cheese that I could make better at home.
Then when our orders arrived, I was not at all impressed with the flavor. I ordered a combo of an enchilada and a mini-burrito – but I couldn’t tell a difference. The chicken in the filling was pretty stringy and flavorless. I ended up adding some salsa on top to get any flavor in each bite.
The highlight of the meal was the mashed potatoes. Those were actually very good – but not worth trying to force down the rest of the meal.
I would give the place another chance since my brother did say he really liked it – maybe I just didn’t order their specialty dish.
