If you are looking for an all you can eat mexican buffet, El Potro is the place to go. The food is very good and for the price of the buffet, you cannot beat it. We have been to the lunch buffet on Abercorn in Savannah and while it was busy, and the food took a little long to get... read more

We just beat the church rush on a Sunday for lunch. I have never been to a Mexican buffet before, and let me just say I am so glad I don't live near one because I would weight 300 pounds. The buffet was absolutely delicious. We were stuffed.

Visited many times and always good. Friendly people and excellent food. Lunch buffet is admittedly a little mixed depending on when you visit. Owner always asks how things are when he is there.

My hubby and I went here for dinner, service was terrible and the fish did not taste fresh. Needless to say this was the 2nd time this happened, so wet won't be going back.

Friday night buffet is a favorite with our family. Staff is the nicest of any restaurant. Price is very reasonable. They keep the buffet fresh. Very kid friendly.

I succumbed to peer pressure and joined a few peeps from work. I was instantly suspicious... They have a lunch buffet and most of the selections were the same color. I should have known better. An hour later, Ugh. I won't be going back.

The buffet has many great-tasting items on it and is a reasonable cost. The wait staff are pleasant and eager to please.
