Hadn't been to Los dos Potrillos for a little while and was pleased upon our return on the quality and flavor of the food on this latest visit. I asked our waiter if they had a new chef as the hotness factor of the salsa as-well-as the green chili sauce had gone up considerably! No, he said, it just depends... More

We have been in Denver for a little over a year now and have only found one Mexican restaurant we liked up in LoHi. After reading the reviews on Los Dos Potrillos, we decided to give it a try. Other than a fairly lengthy wait for a table (about 1/2 hour), everything was great. Good margaritas, good cheese enchiladas and... More

We eat here often. The food is always good and comes out quickly. The Sunday brunch is great if you can eat a lot. The price is right and it includes all kinds of breakfast foods plus a huge variety of Mexican food.

Always great food and great fast service. Smothered chicken burrito is wonderful and green chile has perfect level of heat! A side of fresh jalapeños and sour cream is the best compliment to an already fantastic meal!

Hands down the best Mexican food on the south side of town. My family and I go there at least once a week.

Good menu, good food and good service, good margaritas, terrible parking. We eat here frequently because they do not use MSG in their food or sauces - this means their food, especially the meat is fresh and good quality. Only issue this time was that my cheese enchilada was not very hot. Her crispy chile rellenos were great.

We eat at Los Dos a couple times a month and I am finally finding time to review. They are consistently wonderful with both their Top Shelf Margaritas and their food. You have to try their Chile Relleno Nachos. They are so good, you could make a meal of them (I often do)! However, then I wouldn't have room from... More

I had written a review about our breakfast already. The wife and I spoke about going again for dinner on a different occasion. We were in Denver for the weekend, so we decided to go. I had the carnita plate. I am not as crazy about pork as I once was, but this dish converted me once again. Awesome carnitas.... More

I went for drinks on my recent visit to Colorado, I was pleasantly surprise on how authentic the ambiance and food are. The service is excellent and the food even better. Highly recommend it if you are in the mood for full Mexican experience.

Good menu, authentic Mexican food. The menu items tend to be highly spicy. Menu indicates the dish is served with lettuce and tomato which is true, but do not expect much of either. If you ask for rice and beans with a kid's menu item, be sure to tell them you want to substitute with rice and beans, otherwise you... More
