Outstanding menudo

We came specifically for menudo for breakfast (please note that even though it doesn't appear on breakfast menu, it is available for breakfast weekdays and weekends). Served with lime, cilantro, chopped onion, oregano, and whole dried peppers on the side. The menudo itself is mostly meat, unlike a... read more

This is my go-to restaurant for delicious New Mexican food. The menus are unique and delicious. The restaurant caters to locals in a tourist-oriented town.

The food was quite different from the Mexican food I've enjoyed in Arizona..... Their menus were a mess & peeling apart & the loud echoes inside (because of the brick walls & tile floor) made the acoustics just awful in there. We tried to talk to one another but gave up when my voice went hoarse...... Service was extremely slow... More

We first ate here 10 years ago and loved the food. Go back at least once a year and the food is still the best true Mexican food you'll ever eat in NM. Over 10 years, the menus are worn as is the furniture, but the food is still excellent. In an old Pizza Hut building, you will miss it... More

We've eaten here several times, and often there are local families celebrating a special occasion. The service is pretty good and the food is reliable. I would have given 5 stars, but my shrimp stuffed chile relleno wasn't great. The shrimp were the tiny bay or salad size and were pretty fishy. Otherwise everything was great. My husband had shredded... More

Just eat and eat and eat. One of the best local places I think. I keep coming back. Great food. Good service. Fair price. You really can't tell from outside but go.

We ate three meals in two days here in 2010, always wonderful. Just as good as then, three more meals. Moises really stood out as a friendly and effecient server. We LOVE Los Potrillos.

The variety here is better than "the usual fare" offered at many Mexican Restaurants. The prices were reasonable although a few more offerings in the single digits would be good. Service was attentive. Comfortable ambiance. Ample parking on side and in front.

Friday nights are take out for the wife and I. We try foods that can travel well all the way out to Eldorado (20 minutes). We love Los Portillos but always eat there. Last night we tried their amazing ribs and a new favorite, a goat stew (cabrito). Both made it home hot and delicious. Had left over goat, sure... More
