Love to have lunch at El Potro's. Friendly staff always quick with services. Chips and salsa brought to the table before you order. My favorite is the chicken fajita quesadilla.

The salsa was good though the chips were a little odd - strange taste and texture. Service was prompt though food was not quick out of the kitchen. The entrees were hot and fairly tasty though not particularly authentic. I lived 21 years in the southwest and have a taste for authentic Mexican Good. I suspect most Mid-westerners would find...

Portions are big and everything we have ordered has been delicious. Great salsa before the meal, and they always get my special orders correct with polite and friendly service.

I saw they had some bad reviews and a lot of good. I decided to try it. Wow! The Burrito Cancun was phenomenal! They have an amazing white sauce. Service was good. We ate there for lunch. Salsa has a bit of a kick but good. Would highly recommend and can't wait to go back!
