Stopped at this "Mexican" restaurant on my way home to NWI after a short road trip. I based my decision on all the positive reviews I read on trip advisor.

We think the food is good at both locations, but prefer the North location for atmosphere. Food is hot and fresh. Good salsa and cheese dip!

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
