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.

El Potrillo is probably the best Mexican restaurant in Hutchinson. They have a great variety of dishes. I usually order a different thing every time. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The staff is friendly. The atmosphere is nice.
