Service is horrible but food is pretty good

In the mood for Mexican so we found El Potrillo Mexican Restaurant. We entered and could see that they were busy but the bar was empty. So we sat at the bar. We find out that the bartender is really a waiter that has 1/3 of the restaurant. Two other servers were on as well. In between running... read more

A friend and I just left this restaurant for lunch. They were extremely slow, gave us the wrong food, then once we received it they told us that they were out of guacamole. My friend said they should have gone to get some from the store and the manager said it was too expensive and he would have to raise... More

Had lunch there last week and everything was awesome! The servers were the best, the food was delicious. I like the fact that you can order just what you want and not have to load up with beans, rice, etc. You can order the combos and get all of the extras but I often don't want to eat that much....

This is the one in Madison, Mississippi on Hyw. 51. The owner is very attentive to the customers. It is family owned...sometimes the owner is in the kitchen. He and his mother make sure that the food is good, hot, and served promptly. I love going here.

This restaurant is excellent. The food is tasty and the portions are large. We go there every Friday night. The prices are very reasonable. The managers even walk through from time to time to ask how everything is. This restaurant is a well-kept secret. It has indoor and outdoor seating. We love it

I went with my family for Dinner on July 4th weekend and ordered Fajitas and Quesadilla's. I was little surprised by the taste, they both were actually good. I ordered some Rice with beans separately. This is a decent Mexican restaurant where you will get good and fast service. They have other good options in their Menu. I will definitely... More

This hardly qualifies as a Mexican restaurant. Put guacamole on everything does not constitute Mexican cuisine. The salsa was not spicy at all, the sopapillas were basically fried tortillas with whipped cream and (literally) a cherry on top. If you want some fake Mexican cuisine (e.g. Tex Mex) I guess this may be a decent spot, but if you want... More
