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

While not the best Mexican option in this area it's a decent selection when we are looking for something inexpensive, close to our house, and with good two for one drink specials. I grew up going to the Brunswick, GA location for years (my hometown) so I was pleasantly surprised to find one by my house in Orlando. The food... More
