“A Jax Beach Must!!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

I've been to The Beaches numerous times and tried countless Mexican restaurants, but none offer the ambiance, outstanding food quality and friendly, efficient service that we enjoyed at El Potro. We were a party of 8 and started with a warm queso dip which is absolutely to-die-for. The liters of beer were ice cold, the margaritas refreshing, the refills kept coming, the entrees were delicious and cooked to perfection, and everything was provided by a highly skilled server with a big smile, and a great sense of humor. I can't wait to return to Jax Beach just to eat here again!

“Good Food, Great Service, Fair Price”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Food was good, not great. Well, my son thought the tacos were amazing. They certainly looked good. Service was outstanding and very friendly. Portions were generous, enough so that while we had a late lunch (2pm) it was enough that we did not need to eat dinner.

“This aint Mexico!”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

They have great refried beans. The hamburger is gross. The chicken is mixed with a tomato sauce - thats anything on the menu. Service is fast and friendly. Guacamole is good!!
