This is our family's favorite Mexican restaurant and, judging by their traffic, others would agree. The chile relleno nachos are super, as are the chile relleno entrees and (my favorite) the Camarones Los Dos. It can get busy which is another testament to the great food. The mariachi band on Thursday evenings makes that our favorite time to visit.

We have been here several times. It is always busy. It can be tough to find parking. Because of that we usually do take-out.

We've been to this restaurant several times and the food is always excellent. I've people from out of town and they have nothing, but good things to say about the food and service. Best Mexican in the Denver area.

Family owned restaurant with the best Mexican food. Always a wait to get in but worth it. The Los Dos Burrito and the street tacos are our family's favorite. The Margaritas are very good as well. The food is plentiful and you will always walk out with a dogie bag.

My wife and I eat there every couple of weeks. She really enjoys the Lila salad, and I get the fajita burrito. Highly recommended!

Since there are dozens of Mexican restaurants in the Denver area, the fact that this is one of our, if not our #1 favorite Mexican restaurant in the south suburban area says a lot. Los dos Potrillos certainly has the most varied and authentic menu of them all. The mariachi band is first class and worth having to speak louder... More

Love the authentic Mexican food. The "coin" margarita is the best. No sweet and sour its like having one in Mexico. The food and service are always very good.

We moved here from Texas and Oklahoma and have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant. This place has great Mexican food! Salsa is a little hot for me but queso is awesome!

Met our kids and grand kids for dinner and everyone enjoyed it, even the grilled cheese sandwich with fries. First time I have had the carne asada which is a thin steak with all of the mexican trimmings, including a very hot chile. My wife and son had the shrimp and beacon and others had chiles. One reason we like... More

I love Mexican and have eaten almost everywhere in the metro area but this is the easily the best. There are so many great Mexican restaurants around and this one stands out. The extensive menu has something for everyone. The rellenos are really good. The green chili is spicy but not unbearably hot. My favorite is probably the street tacos.... More
