Success! Thanks for posting your review of Pokez Mexican Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.


Pokez is the nickname of Alfonso Reyes and his brother Rafael whom along with his father started this family run eatery back in 1994. It's a funky cool Mexican place. I do not know if the atmosphere and attitude make the food taste better or the food makes the atmosphere better, but whatever it is this is my favorite taco shop in town.\r

A Good Friend

I think Pokez spot is cool. I love the food over any mexican resturant hands down. They serve the freshest ingrediants I've ever tastied.

Go if you like being mistreated, and still want to pay for food and tip

Bad service overshadowed decent food.

My boyfriend and I ate here last weekend, both vegetarians we heard a lot about it and wanted to try. It was cheap, the salsa was amazing, and the tacos were okay... not a direct comparison, but between the two I favor Taco Loco in Laguna Beach (which is also famous for it's poor service and rude employees). It wasn't too busy, but we waited a long time to get everything... drinks, the food, our check... the guy serv... view more

mexican food with soul!

""Mexican"" and ""vegan"" are rarely uttered in the same breath, but Pokez has its recipe right, with delicious seasoned tofu that would have any burrito-buff fooled. The unusual Mexican menu is infused with generous traditional meat dishes as well as insanely tasty vegetarian, more healthful alternatives. The crowd is a cross section of the young counter-culture crowd, which is good, because they tend to forgive the... view more
