“Good if you've never had authentic Mexican food.”
Reviewed 21 May 2012 via mobile

Good if you've never had authentic Mexican food. The food is bland and lacks any heat. Believe me, I do not like spicy food AT ALL. But, I need it to not taste like Mexican day in the hospital cafeteria

“Our favorite Mexican restaurant in town”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We used to frequent a very popular chain of Mexican restaurants around the Columbus area, then we moved to Galloway and found this little treasure right around the corner from our house. The food is at least as good as the other restaurant’s food, and the prices are better. Service is fast and friendly, and take-out orders are always ready in 15-20 minutes. We go so frequently that some of the servers know us now and greet our family like friends. Over the past year, the restaurant has expanded to house a very large party room which is used as additional restaurant seating on busy nights. They also have a lunch buffet that is around $11. The buffet is well-stocked with great variety, from sopapillas to tamales to chili rellenos, and the food is always hot. This restaurant used to be one of Columbus’ best kept secrets, but it becoming more and more popular, and for good reason!

“WOW great lunch buffet, best Mexican in Columbus area!!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2011

We have always loved Tres Potrillos. The food is wonderful, the prices are reasonable (down right cheap during happy hour 2-7) and the people are friendly. Tre Potrillos has totally outdone themselves with their new lunch buffet. It is daily from 11-3 and is 6.99 during the week and 8.99 on weekends. We went on a Thursday. I was amazed by the great selection. I felt as if they had the enitre menu out!! (burritos, fajitias, chimmichangas all in beef or chicken, shredded chicken, beef for nachos or taco salads, cheese sauce, chips, guac, salsas, chicken pineapple chirizo, wings, poppers, pizza, chicken fingers, chiros, and two other desserts, and more!!!) The quality of food and the wide selection make this steal for 6.99. I would not have a problem paying 10.99-12.99 for this type of buffet. Way to go Tres Potrillos you continue to be the best Mexican resaurant in Columbus!!!! We will be back!!!!
