We used to enjoy going to El Potro since they had the most delicious buffet. They closed their doors forever some time ago and they are missed!

Visiting in town and got a recommendation to go here. We were a little concerned with no cars in the parking lot on a Monday night, but don't be turned off, it was great. Excellent queso, great service. We would definately go again.
