If you've been to the border cafe or mexico lindo or acapulcos this will feel familiar to you. Decor is basically a carbon copy of Mexico Lindo and the menu is comprised or the same boring standards and execution is par for the course. On the positive side, Beer selection was above average and the bar is pretty big. Service was above average and they have a parking lot. It's a commercially successful formula in the area but it's not approaching anything authentic.

We had a Groupon & visited El Potro on Highland Ave in Malden last week - they had been open for a week so we were a bit hesitant thinking the kitchen might not yet be up to speed. We were wrong - excellent vegetarian burrito and enchiladas with good sides of rice and beans. Good selection of Mexican beers. The waitress was very sweet though she struggled a bit with English. The manager went from table to table to check on everyone. Not sure all this was because it is new or it will have such good customer service after they are open for awhile. While we were not there long enough to hear it, there is music in the evenings. We will be back for sure.
