We found this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel desk clerk, who said it was the best Mexican restaurant around. It was filled with locals, as far as I could tell. They have an extensive menu. The service was very good. I highly recommend the guacamole-but we informed that is enough for 3 or 4 to share!

Los Potrillos never disappoints. We came a bit before 7PM and had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. However, the food and drinks were excellent as usual and the service was swift without appearing hurried. We have been coming here for about 4 years now and have never been disappointed. This remains a superb Mexican restaurant in Santa... More

Great authentic Mexican food. Great service and great menu selection. We come here frequently and bring out of town guests here for an authentic taste of Santa Fe. Highly recommended.

Smallish store, but good food and decent service. Not too busy for lunch, good parking and location.

We always enjoy Los Potrillos. They serve Authentic Mexican home cooked meals. It is not just another "New Mexican" style cafe. Most of the tables are filled with Latino Families and that says more than anything I can tell you about it. But I do have to say We have dined there many times and have never had a bad... More

Tried this restaurant out because of previous reviews; was not disappointed. Price point was good for Santa Fe, Both of us enjoyed our dinners and margaritas; so much so that the next evening we decided to go back again! I tried their rib plate this time just for something different from the usual tacos or enchiladas. The meat was so... More

This was our first visit here after having driven by it for a few years. I had the BBQ ribs and hubby had the steak and shrimp. Both were very good -- the ribs were meaty, tender, and very flavorful. The steak and shrimp were also very good. The steak was not thick, but with excellent flavor. We enjoyed all... More

Very close to where we were staying and it looked good so let's give it a try. We were delighted by the welcome, the service and the food was just so tasty, it was wonderful.

The manager of the house we rented had left a list of recommended restaurants and this was one. We just did not have a good experience. Margaritas were bland. Salsa was the highlight. We had a variety of dishes (fajitas, burritos, chile rellenos, enchiladas) and none were really good. We drove by this place many times and generally there were... More
