Restaurant details

Two of us had dinner here because of the recommendation of the motel receptionist even though it wasn't on their "list." We were not disappointed. We have become increasingly put off by Mexican restaurants we have visited recently. Too often thier food is either foo-fooed up or it is steam table fare. Here, the food is authentic with bubbly hot beans, fresh ingredients, and appropriately spicy. The atmosphere is funky, if dimmly lit, like being in a small Mexican village. The crew are friendly yet professional and efficient. Oh, do not pass up the killer margarittas!

The food is bland.
The cups look dirty.
the tables and chairs are unsanitary.
The staff is friendly though...

This was our first time ever eating at this restaurant. The food came out quickly, it was very hot, tasted mmmmm good and was more than enough. Definitely a place for you to try.

We decided to eat Mexican last night, and I will say we were very satisfied! The service and the food was good. Would recommend to others and will definitely stop by there when I am in the area!

We found this place by accident on a road trip returning to PA from FL at the end of a long day. My husband loves Mexican food and we were told at the hotel that there were several in shopping centers between I-95 and Savannah. I spotted EL POTRO and, despite its simple strip mall appearance, we decided to give it a try.

We weren't looking for anything fancy....just some tacos and margaritas. Plenty of choices. Tacos were fantastic...we shared several kinds. And the $1.99 happy hour margaritas were great. Wish we didn't live 13 hours away. We will go back on future north/south road trips.

Simple place with really good food.
