Delicious

We have been coming to 3 Potrillos for years. They have the best margaritas in town. Their Pollo ala Crema is one of my favorites, along with their Carne Asada. Service can be a little slow, but the servers are so nice.

Love the House Origianl Margaritas and the green chille. For a fun and fresh twist, try the Dos-Amigos salad with green chille instead of dressing.

Please don't overlook a non-chain restaurant located at the corner of Ken Caryl and Simms in unincorporated Jefferson County. Locally owned and operated--food is always fresh and the servers are so accommodating to whatever your needs might be.

We ate here on a rainy Saturday night. We had no trouble being seated immediately since there were few customers. The menu is very extensive with lots of choices. In our party, we tried guacamole, enchiladas, tacos, burritos and chimichangas. Unfortunately, the items that we chose were just very mediocre. Perhaps we are just spoiled because we have been to...

Located near the hotel, the food and service was excellent. They took the time to get to know us and shared local information to make our trip better.

One of a gazillion local Mexican food places in the Denver area. Can't go wrong here. Service can be a bit sluggish at times, but staff is very friendly and food is good enough to warrant some inconsistency there. Margarita was well made. No tap beers though, so if you like pairing a Dos Equiis Amber with some tacos you'll... More

Recently was in Colorado vacationing. Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night. Our service started out poor and only went downhill from there. The atmosphere is mom and pop which I usually like but there was a sporting event on tv near the bar area (as far away from as possible) that was a little rambunctious. The waitress got... More

Been here twice on separate visits, and have not been disappointed! Great food, nice portion, very good margaritas! Recommend any of their combos for a great sample of their cooking! Several birthdays were taking place while we were there, and they were definitely having happy birthdays! Nice people, great service!

Food was excellent, service was horrid. A little high priced for Mexican food. If you don't care about the service, just wasn't good food, go. If you like good service, don't.
