Good comfort Mexican food. One of our overall favorite spots in the area. The staff have been able to take care of just us two and when we've had groups of 12.

Fajitas good. Odd that the toppings don't come with it. Only pick three and the rest is a charge. Have enjoyed this meal in Swartz Creek location and the portion is larger. Cheese sauce really good, which I hadn't tried before! Server was nice, possibly new and was unfamiliar with the menu. The food took quite a while and they... More

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.

I've been to a few of the local Mexican restaurants over the years and El Potrero is my favorite. I eat there at least once a month and every time the food and service has been great. The El Guerro special is great for meat lovers and I either get that or one of their taco salads if I'm trying... More

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 the opposite side). Really? The neon is burnt out (visible), the "take out" is not... More

Very good food and great service. Best corn tortillas in the shrimp enchiladas. They were so soft and tasty and the shrimp was nice - not dried up little things. Chips and salsa came with my meal. Loved both. I was dining alone so I sat at the bar. Bartender was great about finding something that interested me on TV... More
