We believe that Ponce's does a lot more than sell food and margaritas. We believe that Ponce's holds a very rare, very special distinction in business: that of the family-owned, community restaurant.
The Meza family is not just here to make money. They are here to enrich the lives of all of the people who walk through the doors at Ponce's. This includes the employees, who are able to support their families, pay their rent, work their way through college, raise enough money to travel, buy a house, a car, pay for a wedding, or many other things we've yet to see; the guests, who are able to shed their stresses when they sit down to a comfortable, affordable meal at the end of a long work day, or to establish family traditions by gathering for a weekly meal, share a post little-league game lunch, host a holiday party, meet their mate and ask him or her to marry them, learn about new tequilas, get used to their new neighborhood, network at a business lunch, and so on; the organizations that we support, like AIDS Walk, Dine Out for Life, YMCA, Mid-City Little League, Haiti Relief Fund, Churches, Schools, Libraries, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Musicians, Poets, Artists, and many more.
It is through these filters that we view our success, and without excellent food, amazing service, a welcoming atmosphere, and fair pricing, we will not be able to accomplish our goals. We've done it for over forty years, and we hope to continue for many more.
