Ponak's Mexican Kitchen is the idea of started by John Ponak & Crew. The restaurant is still Kansas City's most famous Mexican eatery in the 4th decades, and it is famous not only for its excellent food and a relaxed, friendly environment but also for world-class Margaritas on tap. John Ponak imagined returning to his hometown of Kansas City and starting an eatery when he came back to "the world" he did just that; in an industrialized sector of the city near the Kansas River Ponak's, it became a landmark. Ponak's Mexican Kitchens recipes are guided by the Sonora area of Mexico, steeped in culture and flavor for hundreds of years. Their teams are using only the finest ingredients and make them fresh throughout the day, and it gets a little extra time and effort, but they think their clients are worth it. The restaurant party room is available Monday-Thursday through regular business times as well as Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until 4 pm.
