We used to enjoy going to El Potro since they had the most delicious buffet. They closed their doors forever some time ago and they are missed!

So sad that they closed. We had been going there for over 20 years.....loved their buffet.... Hopefully they will reopen at a new location somewhere near

You have to try this buffet at least once. You will fall in love with it as all 5 of us did in our family. Great food and low price. When we stay in town 3 days, we make sure we go here and eat at least twice.

Regrettably, El Potro is no longer in business in St. Marys. Apparently, 4 Mexican restaurants in St. Marys was one too many. Ironically, El Potro was the best of the bunch.

I have been going to El Potro in St. Marys, Georgia for years. I have tried several items on the menu but always go back to ordering the half order chimichanga. It is just right as far as size and there is no rice but there is refried beans with melted cheese that are good to scoop up with the... More

El Potro is not very good, IMHO. The place always appears to be dirty to me. The buffet is gross and unappealing. The food is poor. I guess you could say I don't recommend it.

Visiting in town and got a recommendation to go here. We were a little concerned with no cars in the parking lot on a Monday night, but don't be turned off, it was great. Excellent queso, great service. We would definately go again.

Working at the base, spent some time here visiting local eateries. All the chain resaraunts serve bland food at twice the price. Here we were able to enjoy food with flavor. Hostess was the best, she made you feel at home and even joked around a bit. Finally we found a place that served good food and had a personality.... More
