Poncho's is the type of backyard cookout where you plan to visit for a quick bite, but end up spending your whole night because the hosts know how to throw a party. Popping up on Fridays outside a community center house just south of Downtown, this outdoor Oaxacan restaurant sets up a few tables, a speaker to play banda music, and a charcoal grill to toast up the only dish on the menu: char-grilled tlayudas. These massive, crispy folded tortillas are easily the best in town, flavored with pork fat, black bean paste, and melted quesillo that comes through in every bite. Each one comes with a choice of protein: the ones you want are the salty strips of tasajo (cured steak) and sliced moronga (Oaxacan blood sausage).
