A great taste experience at Los Potrillos. We were seated promptly and service was great throughout our meal. Food was delicious and affordable too. Didn't leave a morsel, but then didn't have room for dessert!! Next time!!

Good, reliable Mexican fare. Excellent fajitas and tacos in a lively atmosphere, accompanied by refried beans and rice. You feel like you're immersed in a Mexican community when you visit, which we enjoyed. Good service and good pricies. Located on Cerrillos Road near the intersection with St. Michael's Drive.

I love ribs and it's rare to see them on a Spanish menu so I ordered them without hesitation and was blown away at how great they were!

WOW. A great find when trying to go to another place. We took a chance and are glad we did. Now on our tops list. Mostly local folks eating. This is Mexican fare, not New Mexican. Traditional recipes. Husband had the pobano peppers stuffed with shrimp - the Mexican version of a rellano using the poblano vs. a big Jim/Hatch... More

During our April visit to Santa Fe my husband was wanting something a little different for dinner from southwestern food and since we are fans of Mexican food, he suggested we try Los Potrillos. This ended up being a very good choice. The food here is excellent and portions are large. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere inside, with horse... More

The food was good! But it was so HOT in there. We had a bit of a wait, not long though, about 5-10 minutes. No place to really wait though.

I really enjoyed the Green Chile! It was good food. I did not have any complaints whatsoever. I would come here again and for anyone to try it at least once while in the Santa Fe area.

Excellent food , stayed across the road and the hotel recommended this for original Mexican food . Chicken rellenos are great and the margaritas are enormous . Complimentary tortilla chips and dip . Seafood selection is good also . Menu is extensive and can confuse the novice Mexican eater like me but have a go . The service is excellent... More

A car is needed to get from the historic center of Santa Fe. Los Potrillos is ten minutes away. But this is the real deal, authentic Mexican food, gutsy and delicious. We had goat stew, absolutely yummy. Delicious guacamole and many other dishes. Tres leches tops!
