Enjoyed dinner here on business, found it to be a nice atmosphere and staff who didn't constantly keep asking if they can get you anything else to try to get you to leave. I hate that when it happens, there are simply times when a restaurant is where you do some business, and you don't need that aggravation. Thank you... More

This is the best Mexican food I have found anywhere. I travel a lot but when I come back home this is the first place I go to eat. Good Food and good people. Can't miss on this one.

Not a big fan. It's average at best. Pretty much a run of the Mexican place. Wasn't terrible but there was nothing that really stands out.

They start you out with taco chips and salsa that taste fantastic at no charge. The margaritas always taste great and a reasonable price of only 2.99$ for a 12 oz..The salads are always fresh with lots of onions. I personally like the quesadilla fajita which comes in chicken or steak. Both are good but I prefer the chicken. It's... More

I try to like the area's beloved "La Pot," but each time I've eaten there, I am met with gastric distress. I'm not impressed with the lack of seasoning and really expected more flavor - not just salt and heat. There's good Mexican to be found locally - I just cannot find it here.

It looks like a building that was a different restaurant and they changed it into LaPotosina. Hungry so we gave it a chance. The staff was friendly and nice. The Mexican food here was very good. We enjoyed the meal. The decor---I just do not know but I did lke the food. I would returned.

Love this place. We frequent the location on N Vermilion. Staff is always nice. Food is great. Pechuga Frita (chicken, onions, sauce) is amazing and their fajitas so yummy. Prices vs serving is fantastic. When we travel we measure all Mexican restaurants to La Pot. They usually come up the winner.

Food is very good. Restaurant is clean. Wait staff are efficient and polite. Just wish staff were a little more friendlier (i.e. smile). Also, wish they would speak more English. Sometimes they will talk unfavorably about their customers in Spanish - which I do understand.
