This authentic restaurant is located in a nondescript strip mall but has tasty Mexican food at a reasonable price. There is a bar area with TVs for those diners who want to watch sports. My husband and I like this spot for Mexican at Jax Beach.

Always fresh. Always good. Great family atmosphere. Love the Texas rice. They have a buffet but I have never tried it. It seems to be very popular though, so I'm guessing it's good.

This place is near our home. We stop in a couple of times a month to have a couple of beers and a bite to eat. It IS NOT a five star eatery and does not pretend to be, although it has it's good points.

The food isn't bad and certain dishes a quite good
It's not expensive. Most entrees are under $10 and that's why it gets four stars.
I have never had it, but they also have a buffet for you big eaters (check times and days)

Surprise good items are hotwings (old school) and the make a really good basis pollo soup.

In Jacksonville for a few days and wanted Mexican food and El Potro was pretty close so we tried it. Our waitress could not have cared less that we were even there. They have a buffet and were almost offended we asked for a menu. The buffet food seems to have sat out all day. A refill really offended our waitress. We ordered beef nachos for our kids and it literally tasted like dog food, not joking.

The salsa tastes like it is poured out of a Pace Picante Sauce jar. I hate writing bad reviews but this place deserves it. I honestly cannot think of a worse dining experience and I travel a lot and I eat at a lot of places.
