Good Food/Excellent Staff

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.

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.

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.

We always enjoy both the food and the service. Is it the best I've had? No, but very good and an excellent value.

We ate there last night. The atmosphere is okay and it's clean and the service was good despite the crowds.. I had the #3, which consists of a taco, an enchilada and a chili relleno.. The taco and enchilada were all right, consisting mostly of some very good beef. The chili relleno was a disaster. the only bit of chili... More

We love "The Pot" so much! I could eat there every day. The endless chips and salsa are enough to fill you up. We've ordered several different food items and were never ever disappointed. Service is quick and friendly, restaurant is clean. Bathrooms are clean. We prefer the south location to the north. Food is just plain great!

We live close to the north site and eat there often, they recently moved to a new and bigger location. service is always fast and the food is consistently good, our favorite is the pechuga frita, We've never been dissapointed, portions are very generous. The south location is as good or better.
