Food is good BUT when i order take out, the last couple of times I have told them to swap the rice for beans. Well, they don't listen! I said I can't eat rice that I'm allergic! I had forgotten to check this time! Other times the gals have been very good about it. PLEASE have your employees LISTEN dang-it!!! AND CHECK THE ORDER!!! THAT'S WHAT WE PAY YOU FOR! !!

the food was excellent my only drawback was our waiter did not tend to us in a timely manner and we had to call for another waiter from another section to assist us



Shady and rode wait staff

We use to go in every week as it's down the street from the house.

Our family no longer want to eat at this place.

One day I ordered a fish Taco plate.

When our food finally came I ask for extra lemons. As I like my fish tacos with lots of lemons.

The waitress inform me that they charge extra for extra lemons. LoL. It came with one slice of lime. I pointed out. And ask her again. If they really charge extra for lemons and she said yes. And she is sorry.

So I just used the lemons from our water that she have us when are waiting for our food. I ordered some soda we are not using the water.

When we got done eating, we ask for the bill. And she added her tip on our tab. Even there was only 3 of us that day. We ask where did the extra charges come from that we did not ORDER the extra lemons that she wanted to charge me since I ordered a fish taco.

She was telling us that it was the wrong bill. It looks like She did that to everyone on all the tables she was serving that day. She came back with the same bill with out the charges on our tab.

We try to support our local restaurant around our house to promote business. But with costumer services like this we took our money to a place that the workers does not feel like the costumer has to pay for extra lemons for there fish tacos and feel that the tip should be added on the bill even when it's less than 4 in your table.If we did not look at the bill and just added the tip. She could have double the tip on all her table that day.

Most of our family's no longer eat at this place.this place has gone down hill from 8 years ago.

Never Again

Went to Popo's today on 8/4/11. I wanted to go somewhere close and get some somewhat ""soft food"". My Grandmother just had her teeth fixed and could not chew that well. I could have easily gone across the street to Macayos and had reliable service and food (well sorta). Instead, I decided to go to Popo's on 59th and Bell. Have had them a few times, NO PROBLEMS. Guess I never had take out from them before. I ordered a fish burro and my Mother had a taco and tostada a la cart. Then I asked for a to go order of a green chili burro. I did not know that on togo orders you must order chips and salsa separate (FRICKIN CHEAP). Anyway, I had a good meal. The food was decent and the service up until this point was adequate. Or server who's name is Junior had a follow that day. I understand the stress, but make a good impression for the one that you are training so they will know the right way to do things. Anyway, asked for boxes and he brought us some. Then our TO GO order came out. No chips and salsa provided. I guess that's a way to generate more revenue for the company. Still, no problem since I had some on my table. I took the chips and salsa and walked to the kitchen. The Manager, Vicky Baird, was standing right at the doorway. I asked her to please box up the chips and salsa. She then stated it was against health code and rudely walked away. I put the chips and salsa down and left. I was now very mad. I went to the table and told my companion ""NO TIP"". I told him we would NEVER be back. Junior took it upon himself to tell me that he, ""encourages us to not come back."" Wonder how his boss would like that???? NEVER again. I will continue to spread this message for at least the next two years. 3500+ local facebook friends I am sure will agree.

Popo's is Num-Nums

My boyfriend and I decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews since we recently moved to the SW valley. Located in a tiny strip mall in the heart of Maryvale, Popo's could easily go unnoticed. (We missed it and thought it was in the Fry's shopping center- duh). Thanks to the food, service, and margs, we know exactly where it is now! Great food and service; portions are huge. Margaritas actually have tequila in them-- (nice!) Can't wait to return.

Best Mexican Food Anywhere!!!

The food here is outstanding. They have the best mexican food anywhere and I've eaten at a lot of places!! High recommended. Even though we live in the East Valley, I would travel to eat here anytime.

Want the best? It's Popo's.

We eat at Popo's several times a month. The food is incredible! Service is great and prices are very reasonable. I'm so spoiled -- can't stand store-bought chips anymore, and have never found any Mexican food anywhere better.

Popo's will always be my favorite!

Personally, I've been eating at Popo's since birth! My parents ate there in high school, before the ""new half"" of the restaurant was added! My friends & family have always considered Popo's our family restaurant. We appreciate the years and years of wonderful service and exceptional food. Hats off to you Popo's, we hope to have you around for many more generations!

Popos has offered amazing food 15 years!

This restaurant has been a favorite of mine since high school. Everytime I go there for machaca tacos, I leave full with leftovers! The price is right and food is amazing. You can't go wrong here.

The Real Deal

I've been eating at PoPo's for to many years to remember. I was first introduced to fajitas there.
Theres not a bunch of Fu-Fu just the best Mexican food in the state. Don't forget to try their machaca burro, second to none .

I have been eating at Popo's for a little over 20 years now, and the service as well as the food is EXCELLENT! It is a nice, cozy, family friendly restaurant. The Chimichanga's are excellent!

Best Chimichangas!!!!!!!

I lived in Phoenix my whole life and then I moved to New Jersey with my husband when he got stationed here and I never thought that I could miss something so much as I do the Popo Burro Delight. I can't wait to get back to phoenix just to have one.
