Service, quality and atmosphere poor. I visited El Potro and another mexeican restaurant on the same evening a few hours apart. Hands down El Potro was lacking. It took a very long time before we were acknowledged. Margarita’s were not good and food was marginal.

We have dined here twice. There are dishes we like and some we don’t. Ones that have impressed us are the fajitas, chili relleno and enchiladas. Least favorite is the tamales. We have yet to try their specialty dishes. Chips, salsa and queso pass the...More

terrific food, fast and friendly service, i would recommend this place to anyone. We had a group of about 12 and never had to ask for anything. Servier was there to check on us about every 10 minutes. This place also has amazing drinks.

I'm sorry but we do not live in the area. We visit Richmond Hill 4-5 times a year to visit our daughter. We have eaten there very often and the buffet is open every time we go. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
