We were looking for a local place to eat, not a chain. Located in a strip mall, La Potosina was a pleasant environment. Was busy on a Saturday night. The foot was plentiful and the wait staff pleasant. The food was OK but just sort of average. We both had enchiladas and if we went back, would try something else.

We normally select restaurants using TA while travelling. In this case, we did not and regret it. Travelling from Kentucky to Iowa.. we stopped for lunch. The Speedy Gonzolez ($4.99 for a taco, enchilada, and rice) and a Burrito Tipico $7.... both very bland and a bit greasy. No taste... The menu is quite large... but surprisingly, not very extensive... More

My daughter and I happened upon this restaurant while driving through Illinois. Nice atmosphere, attentive and helpful staff and good food and beverages. The prices were quite reasonable. Would recommend and would stop here again.

This place looks like a slightly fancier than average Mexican restaurant. That is what you get- better than middling food, and cheerful atmosphere with lots of slightly kitschy decoration, and menu with lots of choices, including some very good ones (my companion loved the Chile Colorado; my entree (stuff wrapped with a soft tortillas- but with a different name, not...

The food is wonderful, the service we had was outstanding, and the margaritas by the pitcher is refreshing....

La Poto, our affectionate moniker, offers a good menu and good food. Although the decor can be a little off-setting, the friendly staff and good food will soon put you at ease. The Burrito Potosina is tasty and fajitas are really good and the portions are generous. They have a limited choice of Mexican beers but the price is right.

Food is always great, however service lacks quality. The waitress we had last time didn't understand that we wanted to share our meal and brought us two of the same meal. We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Always have great meals here. Service is typically average, but the food is great. Been there 30+ times and really have good meals all the time. Have ordered a number of dishes; a couple of my favorites are La Botana and Burrito Tipicos. Prices are very good too.

After receiving recommendations to eat here, my husband and I were looking forward to some good Mexican food. Our orders were finally taken after waiting at least 10 minutes before even being acknowledged by the server. Then when we finally received our order, the food was cold and so extremely salty that it was inedible--Not just one dish, but both... More
