I have been to both North location is worse than the south one. They both don't taste very good. The group that I was in charge of had 3 of the 7 orders were not right. I can not refer any one to eat here sorry.

The beef chimichanga is really good! The roast beef is tender and cooked properly. Sides of beans and rice are also very good. Servers are attentive; prices are very reasonable. Wish they'd offer a couple of American dishes, so those who don't prefer Mexican could eat there, too.

La pot south is the better of the two locations. They are fast friendly and serve great Mexican cuisine. We love taking the kids there as well. The wait staff is superb

If you like Mexican food, this is the place to go in Danville! We always go to the South Gilbert location and it is always busy at dinner time but we have never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes even when they are packed. The food is amazing and the service is great! The prices are incredibly low for... More

I stop here after a workout up the street for the tacos. Killer tacos in a great atmosphere for 5 bucks. Fast service, clean restaurant, a regular haunt when visiting on business. Always works for me. As I mentioned in my last review, however, the young host dude needs more and better energy. Never friendly.

Back in town for business but haven't been back here in a few months. Visited twice this week. The first time the service was very slow. I waited 20 minutes for my taco salad which was an unusually long wait. The host isn't exactly the most cheerful guy, either. Never even spoke to me, just kind of came up and... More
