I am so happy that we found this place again. We ate here twice when we went to Universal Studios 4 years ago. We went twice again this time as well. Their tacos al pastor took me back to El Fogon in Playa del Carmen. Everything we tried was just great. Service is very friendly and pricing is very fair... More

My friends and I finished a Color Run 5K yesterday & we found this place for lunch. Note: We cleaned up after the race. This place is small but makes good use of their space. The menu was unique and had a short section that explained what items were and how they are pronounced. They have a sweet buffet with... More

Leaving Florida to go back home to Ga. Picked here over Outback because rating were better and Mexican is my favorite. Was well worth it. They closed in hour but they were still friendly fast and food was delicious. To make it better they gave me a free Birthday fried Ice cream. 😊

King Quesadilla my favorite, then pork tacos- so tender and burried in fresh cilantro... Homemade queso phenomenal! Margaritas delicious. Attentive service. Great local place where you don't need a reservation and reasonably priced.

Went to Winter Park to pick up something. Its a 45 min drive, so by the time I got there with my daughter, we were starving. Found this little spot and was so happy with the menu, the prices, and the service! Even witness one of the waiters let a senior get a chance to serve himself what he wanted... More

During my delegate convention I joined friends and family at El Potro - this location- for dinner. Mexican buffet food was authentic, fresh, and abundant. This was topped by a delicious pitcher of Sangria and great conversation. This was all possible by the service - Tania's service and affability made the visit extra special! Keep it up!!
