Nice crowd but no line on a Saturday evening. Waiter was responsive but was not real personable, just business. I found salsa acidic and doctored a bit. Food was sloppy on the plate and avocado had some browning. The taste of the food was great. I had the Taco Vallarta with fried beans vs whole.

My idea of good Mexican food is great flavor and doesn't leave you wishing you hadn't eaten it the next morning. Since we were traveling, we split a dish of fahitas served in half a pineapple! Clearly a new take on an old cuisine dish. Delicious and plently for two. The thin, crisp chips came slightly warm with spicy, but... More

We came to El Potrillo to meet family in Hutchinson; our waiter served our party of seven quite well. The place was nicely decorated and clean. The patron margarita was delicious, and our meals were good.

This place has great Mexican food! Try the Quesadilla Mexicana! Service was fast and friendly. Dinner for two was about $20. Check it out if you are in town!

Service was fine and the drink specials were a very good value ($0.99 margaritas), but the food wasn't very authentic and was only ok. I ordered the 7 mares coctel, but they brought me the soup instead. The soup broth was flavorful enough and the fish was flaky, but the shrimp, octopus, and calamari were overcooked. Enchiladas had a cheesy... More

This is my go to restaurant! Their chips and salsa are my favorite. It's a great place to take the family out or just a date night. You can't go wrong picking El Portillo!

We go often because the kids and the grandkids ask to go. Large round tables and big back tables accommodate the whole family.

I'm really picky about Mexican food and when I took my friend from Mexico there, we both agreed that this place is the best we have ever been to in Kansas. This place is a home grown and run restaurant with the owner walking around checking on people to ensure that the food is good. I was only in town... More
