Monday lunch at many places seems to be hit-or-miss. Today's was an almost miss. The chips were warm and the sauce was mild and rich. Our waiter could not have been more friendly, pleasant and professional. But...there was barely any beef in the burrito verde and barely any pork in the special burrito. Three meals cost nearly $40; a bit... More

I have been here a few times and it is just an average Mexican food joint. Comparitive to the other better possibilities in Hutchinson. The price is a little more expensive and the amount of food is a little less. Service is good, people are friendly. But food is just average

Nice crowd but no line on a Saturday evening. Waiter was responsive but was not real personable, just business. I found salsa acidic and doctored a bit. Food was sloppy on the plate and avocado had some browning. The taste of the food was great. I had the Taco Vallarta with fried beans vs whole.

My idea of good Mexican food is great flavor and doesn't leave you wishing you hadn't eaten it the next morning. Since we were traveling, we split a dish of fahitas served in half a pineapple! Clearly a new take on an old cuisine dish. Delicious and plently for two. The thin, crisp chips came slightly warm with spicy, but... More

We came to El Potrillo to meet family in Hutchinson; our waiter served our party of seven quite well. The place was nicely decorated and clean. The patron margarita was delicious, and our meals were good.

This place has great Mexican food! Try the Quesadilla Mexicana! Service was fast and friendly. Dinner for two was about $20. Check it out if you are in town!

Service was fine and the drink specials were a very good value ($0.99 margaritas), but the food wasn't very authentic and was only ok. I ordered the 7 mares coctel, but they brought me the soup instead. The soup broth was flavorful enough and the fish was flaky, but the shrimp, octopus, and calamari were overcooked. Enchiladas had a cheesy... More

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!
