We went there for lunch on a pure whim and left very happy. The food was very well prepared. I had the crazy donkey burrito which was very tasty as was the Margarita that I drank with it. My wife's salad with the warm chicken was a hit with her. Service was good. We recommend the restaurant.

This is a nice sit down restaurant with interesting decor. Booths and long tables to accommodate couples or large families. Wait to be seated. We received a friendly greeting and were seated quickly. Chips and salsa was presented. Menu has a good variety of Mexican food and several American food choices. Our order was delivered quickly, was hot and well... More

We love this Mexican restaurant. Nothing fancy but consistently good. Salsa is fresh and has a bite. Chips are crisp. Enchiladas could use a bit more filling and sauce but still good. Chile relanos always hit the spot. They offer three types of beans I believe. Rice is good as well. Usually get take out and for some reason always... More

We ended up here by accident. . . We were looking for Dos Potrillos. But it worked out well for us. The food was very good and the servings were huge. The wait staff was very patient with our large group and our antics.

Apparently there are a few of these around the area, the one in Littleton in the same shopping center as Wal-Mart has the absolutely best stuffed chile rellenos I have had ever and I have been in Colorado since the 70's- not fried and Mexican original recipe... Also great margaritas and a friendly staff. Suggestion to try it came from... More

Have ate here a couple of times with local family members and the food has always been good. They have a very extended menu with something for everyone. Have tried enchiladas, tacos, and tostadas and have been pleased with all.

For those of you who have been in the Ken Caryl area for a while, you'll remember that the current 3 Potrillos used to be a Burger King. Well, let me tell you, the food now is miles beyond what it was then. 3 Potrillos has a huge menu and everything we've tried has been very good. The chips and... More

We went to the one at 3625 W. Bowels in Littleton. It took about 30 minutes before someone came to take our order and the restaurant is small and wasn't very busy at the time. We love trying new Mexican food places, but this was just terrible. The ground beef in our burrito was not seasoned at all -very bland.... More

Have been to this restuarant on many occassions over the years. Very dependable food, service and quaint atmosphere. Without question my favorite burrito is the "Crazy Donkey" loco burro, one of a kind. Margaritas are very good too.

After driving all day (Dallas to Littleton) with our grandsons thought Mexican would be fast and easy. After getting our seat we were served the chips and salsa. The salsa was nothing more than hot red water. Our 5 yr old grandson had a big bite and his mouth burning. I asked our server to please bring him a glass... More
