"Best Mexican food in town."
"The free cheese dip is really great, and they have really good margaritas."

Pretty quick service (took some time to get the check), but the food was great! The Chile Verde Platter is always my go to, my friend had the Spinach Enchiladas and enjoyed them. The queso was okay, the salsa was great.

Sometimes I think about how I would audit El Potro. The idea of examining cash receipts and comparing them to inventory purchases really builds up my appetite, time to go to Mi Ranchito!

First time we went there was AWESOME at five stars! But the second time was totally different and would rate it at 2 stars. So this is in reflect to our second experience not impressed. They were not busy and waiters seemed not to pay attention to our needs or check on us frequently. They closed at 10pm but this was at 9pm. We could see everyone was wanting to clean early with the wet floors in the kitchen to them vacuuming the dining room. Was very noisy vacuuming. Staff was more interested in their phones and each other than the patrons. Food was not as good as our first experience and was lacking seasoning. We tried many times to get our waiters attention but never made eye contact and hardly said two words to us. I suggest staff wait till all guest are gone before final cleaning this was very distracting and killed the atmosphere that we so enjoyed the first time. Not sure if we will ever go back!

Wonderful new location, service was great, had order of fajitas and it was the best steak, was able to cut with fork, the portions were large and you get a free bowl of white cheese queso and salsa with the meal, can't beat the price. I will come back and recommend to all my friends. Brian R.

Best Mexican food in town. Come with free chips, salsa and cheese qeuaso. The have 2 for $6 house margaritas. Everything is great especially the barocho beans, way better than refried or black beans. Service can be iffy but when yo find one you like. Just ask for there table ever time. Octavia is who i recomend. If you have issues ask for Victor he manages most days. Enjoy the new location.

Love the new location. They can be really busy sometimes, but the wait time on weekends is usually pretty quick. The free cheese dip is really great, and they have really good margaritas. I have enjoyed everything I've tried here. I also think the meals are very fair prices.

Staff at entrance had as little human contact with us as possible. Placed the menus on the table and didn't say a word, but had a lot to say to another employee and his phone. Waitress was pleasant and man who brought our plates was nice. We aren't likely to go back.
