I ordered Gorditas Locatecanas ( Three Tacos with thick flour tortillas) and the Barbecued pork ribs (I forget the Spanish name!) to go. Both dishes were outstanding. We don't have too many places like this in NM. Next time I drive back from Santa Fe...More

We had a wonderful breakfast at Los Potrillos. The food is interior Mexico style. Servings were very generous, service prompt and attentive, prices were very reasonable for our meal. We plan to return when we visit Santa Fe in the future.

This place offers the real flavors of Mexican cooking, lots of fresh ingredients, NOT lots of heat covering a lack of flavor. If you like it hot, ask. You can get ordinary or you can go for adventure! Read through the menu. Very busy with...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I am wondering when your restaurant will replace the ratty, worn and dirty menus? The plastic covers are separating and there is dirt wherever that happens. There are salsa splashes in them too. Those are such a turnoff when the food and service is so consistently excellent. We realize it costs $ but I think you might lose customers or get less than excellent reviews based on those old menus.
