We spent the night at a near by hotel during our travels. This was the closest restaurant to our hotel. It turned out to be a great choice. I had the taco salad and my husband had the fajitas. My taco salad has so much ground beef in it. Hardly any lettuce. This could be either good or bad, which... More

My sister and I decided to go out for some Mexican food since I am here visiting her from Arizona. This was one of her favorite places to go, and she always just orders her safe food, a chimichanga. While her food looked good and tasted very good, the meal I ordered was 100% the opposite. As you can see... More

Chicken taco salad consisted of a large burrito wrap toasted/burned and bent in half, not a tortilla shell bowl, that was swimming/drenched,and practically bleeding in a flavorless, bland white sauce, beef that could not possibly be beef, a slice of tomato layer on top. I ordered chicken mind you. Once I saw what the "taco salad" looked liked, I asked... More

Over the past few years this had been a favorite restaurant. Unfortunately the food quality has declined. And the service has really taken a turn for the worse. Sadly word seems to have spread around town and passing by their location it appears business has dropped off too. With multiple Mexican Restaurants in Manchester we no longer eat here. Look...

Been here several times over the years, always enjoyed the food, but the service has been inconsistent. Good prices and pretty large portions, atmosphere is better than average Mexican decor (for the area). Works if you're eating in and just want decent Mexican food. Will go back when we're in the area.

Hidden away in a strip mall is this nice Mexican restaurant. My California burrito was very big and tasty. The service was very good too. If you like the non chains this is one to try.

El Potrillo was a short distance away from our hotel so we decided to give them a try. We were not disappointed. Service was good/friendly, food was delicious and prices were fair. Not a fancy place by any means but worth checking out. The Mrs thought the margaritas tasted too salty but I thought they were fine. I can heartily... More

Occasionally, we go to this restaurant, usually to see if it can beat our current favorite. It never can, but the food is quite good! We are usually in and out pretty quick, although sometimes you get a bad waiter, most of them are great.
