I ate here on a Friday night. It was fairly busy, but I found a seat at the bar. The bartender was pretty good. I ordered the John beef and chicken fajita with an additional side of their jalapeño sausage. There was plenty and it was good. They had a by request, hotter salsa. It was was hotter and flavorful.

Today My friend and I had lunch at El Potrillo. We were here at lunch time and looked at the lunch menu. Chris had a Fajita Salad and I chose the Steak Americano. Chris said her salad was loaded with steak. My lunch arrived on a platter rather than a plate. It has a nicely seasoned serving of rice and... More

The Classic MOLCAJETE “The traditional, sizzling Volcanic Rock Molcajete”. Filled with grilled chicken breast, carne asada, pork carnitas, jumbo shrimp, nopales (cactus) and green onions. Served with two extra plates of rice and beans, pico de gallo, sour cream, guacamole salad and flour tortillas. For two people, excellent and tasty beyond measure.

One of our favorite Mexican places due to huge selection and good food. A little pricey.....then I discovered they charged an extra $1 for choosing mixed steak and chicken over either all steak or all chicken on the dishes. I brought it up to the cashier. I said, "I don't understand you charge same price if all steak or all... More

Great Mexican food! We just ordered the chicken chimichanga with rice, beans, and salad. It was delicious. We ordered it for takeout and it was ready as soon as we got there. Approximately 10 minutes. So they are really fast!

The customer service was horrible. we were there to celebrate my birthday and graduation from receiving my master's. We had a party of 30 and they only gave us one server to wait on all of us. The server was rude and told one of my guest to shut up. When we asked for the manager the server started speaking... More

We have been going here for years. At one time it was great with good food, drinks, and service. Lately it has gone downhill. The food is just meh and the service is borderline awful. El Sombrero, Papitos, and even Fernando's are better options in the area now if you want Mexican in the Flowood area.

I always stick with what I know when I'm starving but I decided to try something different today and as expected I was disappointed. I ordered the Pechuga a la... More

We eat lunch at least once a month and their chips and salsa are awesome. I usually get the Speedy Gonzales which has an enchilada and a taco and my wife loves the number one that has a chillie releno, a taco, and quacamole. The prices and service are good and the food is consistantly great. Ate there yesterday and... More

We had not been here in awhile and, since our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area is closed due to relocating, we decided to try it again. Not a good experience. Even though there were plenty of tables available, it took about 10 minutes for someone to seat us because there were so many people in the lobby/cashier area waiting... More
