One of my go to Mexican restaurants in town, and it rarely disappoints. A big menu with lots of great choices that always come out fresh and delicious. I wish they had a location on my side of town, maybe soon.

Another great meal from los dos potrillos. The margaritas were outstanding, the service was good as always and the food was delicious. I usually get the chicken mole and it was great this time as usual. I plan to go back.

Friends recommended Los Dos Potrilos for a take out lunch. We called ahead and had a short wait for our food. Chips and salsa were included with the order. Rellenos and tacos were wonderful. The only issue was one less taco than we ordered.
