Good Mexican Food

Very colorful and vibrant interior decorated in the horse theme. It was very busy when we went, however, we had quick seating. The service was fast and friendly. The food was delicious Mexican.

This is your standard "good place for Mexican food." It's a reliably good meal, plenty of food for the price, reasonable drinks, lots of seating, great for families... it's not high cuisine but it seems like a local favorite. Everything I've had here was tasty. The salsa is a little spicy for me but it was pretty good.

Disappointed. We found the relLeno tasteless and the shrimp enchiladas over cooked and also lacking. We are not planning to return.

Four of us had full-plate lunches with 6 Dos Equis beers for $80 + tax. We thought it was excellent value, as the portions were generous & the food authentic & delicious. Service was friendly & fast. Recommended if you are on the SW side of Santa Fe.

Third trip to Santa Fe fro Australia, and third time to Los Potrillos. Easy to find, sometimes not so easy to get a seat but the wait is minimal and soooo worth it! if you like Mexican food and especially if you are sick of the anglicised version back home - you MUST go here. Excellent food, great service, the... More

Great blend of New Mexico and Mexican flavors. Anytime you can get a combination of the two flavors you know it is going to be good. This was a taste treat.

Delicious food. Service was efficient and friendly. My wife had the tan pequeña. She enjoyed it. We both had Aqua Fresca. Decent not mind blowing. The appetizer was good. Quest Fundido. I had the Gorditas . Mind blowing.

If you want a bit of local flavor that meshes Mexican with New Mexican this is the place. It is locally owned and operated here in Santa Fe. You can get anything from Birria to enchiladas. They do serve alcohol and frescoes. They have a great space which they converted to look like you are out in the desert ranches... More

We live in Tucson and are originally from California so we know good Mexican food. While looking for a Santa Fe restaurant that didn't have a waitlist we happened to drive by Los Potrillos. What a find! Very authentic with fresh ingredients and a real treat for the senses, especially the sense of taste. My boyfriend had fajitas with hand-made... More

Stopped in for lunch, and stumbled on the greatest Mexican food I've ever had in my life. Flavorful, and spicy. Now, I'm used to Mexican food on the East Coast, so I'm not sure if every place out here is as good as this, or if it's just Los Potrillos, but the food here is incredible. I'm used to relatively...
