Not great service. Not great food. Salsa bland. No heat. Tasted like just tomatoes. I don't think we will return. Food was nothing special

This is a great place for a quick bite or an unusual Mexican meal. Chips and salsa are good, not great but good. Service is excellent.

In the mood for Mexican so we found El Potrillo Mexican Restaurant. We entered and could see that they were busy but the bar was empty. So we sat at the bar.

A friend and I just left this restaurant for lunch. They were extremely slow, gave us the wrong food, then once we received it they told us that they were out of guacamole.

Had lunch there last week and everything was awesome! The servers were the best, the food was delicious. I like the fact that you can order just what you want and not have to load up with beans, rice, etc. You can order the combos and get all of the extras but I often don't want to eat that much....

This is the one in Madison, Mississippi on Hyw. 51. The owner is very attentive to the customers. It is family owned...sometimes the owner is in the kitchen. He and his mother make sure that the food is good, hot, and served promptly. I love going here.

This restaurant is excellent. The food is tasty and the portions are large. We go there every Friday night. The prices are very reasonable. The managers even walk through from time to time to ask how everything is. This restaurant is a well-kept secret. It has indoor and outdoor seating. We love it
