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.

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!

This was an easy way to satisfy my bride, who commented: "I lived in Mexico as an exchange student for 1 year, and I was looking for authentic Mexican cooking. I asked our Mexican-American hotel front desk staff which restaurant she would recommend, her response being El Potrillos. We had homemade tortillas (they served more than we needed!) and enjoyed...

Did not recognize many of the menu items. Thought about having shrimp soup so the waitress brought me a little sample of the broth. It was quite tasty. Decided on having a stew like soup. It was very good. Meat, potatoes, cabbage in a tasty broth. Guacamole was excellent.

I had the best ceviche ever. It was served on tostadas. The place is casual and the food is very authentic Mexican food. It was a little bit of a drive from where we were staying but it was definitely worth it. Would visit again.

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.
