Since 1975, Ponak's Mexican Kitchen's recipes have been influenced by the Sonora region of Mexico, steeped in tradition and flavor for hundreds of years. We use only the finest ingredients and prepare them fresh throughout the day.

It takes a little extra time and effort, but we think our customers are worth it.

a new "tradicion"

When John Ponak developed his award-winning margarita recipe nearly 45+ years ago, we thought “it can't get any better than this.”  


Well, we are happy to admit we were wrong.  You need to try “Liquid Attitude Tradicional,” our in your face, knock you flat on your back, one-of-a-kind margarita that's just right for any occasion.  Oh yeah, and it's made with 100% pure Agave "Cuervo Tradicional". 


Have we improved on perfection?  
We think so, but you be the judge.
