My husband and I really like this place. One of the waitresses remembers us and we don't go to this place that often! The food is always good and hot. Chips are fresh. Definitely recommend!

I have to say that this restaurant prepares some good food. Granted, I only get the cheese enchiladas w/beans and rice but it's some darn good food. The salsa and chips are done right as well. One of my two fave mexican restaurants in town.

El Potrero served excellent food at this location. We ordered to go and the food was visually appealing, hot and flavorful. This was our first time in Michigan, so we were pleased.

If they possibly read these reviews, which I sincerely hope they do, the service is always good; but the buildings outside is disgusting! This place could be packed every night if the dirty old signs are taken down(lets say behind the "OPEN" sign and on...More
