I visit Los Potrillos often because I love their carne asada gorditas and their "frijoles rancheros." To me this is one of the few restaurants in town with real Mexican good, not New Mexican or Americanized food. Location is really easy to find (right on...More

Very authentic Mexican cooking with many locals dining here. Very tough to order if you are gluten-free, but I had the ribs and they were very good. Husband had enchiladas and they were good as well. Nice décor and Mango Margarita was very good! Service...More
