In the Fall of 1969, Ponciano Meza opened “Ponce’s Mexican Restaurant” in San Diego, CA. With the help of his wife, Maria Meza, Ponciano built “Ponce’s” into a successful family business — with loyal patrons spanning generations. In the Summer of 2000, two of Ponciano’s children decided to follow in his footsteps; siblings Rocio Meza and Ponce Meza Jr. took over the restaurant and subtly modernized the classically loved menu with fresh Mexican favorites and the addition of a full bar.
In 2011, Rocio Meza fell in love, got married and followed her heart to Portland, Oregon — where she now resides. Trailing her family’s long tradition of success in the restaurant industry, Rocio is excited to open a brand new “sister restaurant” to Ponce’s in South East Portland, aptly called “Rocio’s!”
Fun, casual dining is what Rocio and the Meza family are passionate about, and “Rocio’s” is a place where singles, couples and families alike can enjoy a great meal in a stylish and relaxed setting.
We’ll keep this website updated as we get closer to opening, but until then, check out the website for Ponce’s in San Diego to get an idea of what Rocio’s will be.
