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!!

Super great food, well stocked and fresh all the time. The fajita chicken was great, I put it on my cheese quesadilla and wow, loved it. The steak burrito was very tasty, and great ingredients and topping to make your own fresh tacos. Very tasty cheese sauce although it was a bit spicy for me, my family loved it. Delicious... More

This is a nice place to get Mexican food. Nothing fancy or overpriced, personally my favorite is the lunch buffet. For approximately 9 dollars you can have the buffet, is not huge with items that no one eats; it has all the essentials , carnitas, ground beef, tortillas, guacamole, chimichangas, cheese , more items & even dessert. The only downside... More
