I never had a problem with service at this restaurant as some reviewers stated. Owner and staff are always friendly and service is prompt. There are quite a few Mexican restaurants in Madison, and with most the food is predictable, and the food all taste the same mediocre at best. El Potrillo is the exception. I have never been disappointed.... More

Not great service. Not great food. Salsa bland. No heat. Tasted like just tomatoes. I don't think we will return. Food was nothing special

Now that there several Mexican restaurants to choose from in Madison, including one upscale, relatively expensive one, and having tried most of them, my taste buds rate El Potrillo number one. In terms of food quality, cost and value it's a winner.

This is a great place for a quick bite or an unusual Mexican meal. Chips and salsa are good, not great but good. Service is excellent.

In the mood for Mexican so we found El Potrillo Mexican Restaurant. We entered and could see that they were busy but the bar was empty. So we sat at the bar. We find out that the bartender is really a waiter that has 1/3 of the restaurant. Two other servers were on as well. In between running back an... More

A friend and I just left this restaurant for lunch. They were extremely slow, gave us the wrong food, then once we received it they told us that they were out of guacamole. My friend said they should have gone to get some from the store and the manager said it was too expensive and he would have to raise... More

Had lunch there last week and everything was awesome! The servers were the best, the food was delicious. I like the fact that you can order just what you want and not have to load up with beans, rice, etc. You can order the combos and get all of the extras but I often don't want to eat that much....

This is the one in Madison, Mississippi on Hyw. 51. The owner is very attentive to the customers. It is family owned...sometimes the owner is in the kitchen. He and his mother make sure that the food is good, hot, and served promptly. I love going here.
