Mexican Dining at El Potrillo Mexican Grill & Cantina
Why We Went: My daughter and I set out to find a Mexican restaurant near her house in Flowood, Mississippi. We chose El Potrillo Mexican Grill & Cantina because the parking lot was full and the building was so cute. We lucked out because the food and delivery were spectacular; obviously the reason it was so packed.
What We Had: I chose one of El Potrillo Mexican Grill & Cantina’s lunch specials, Pollo Ranchero, which was grilled chicken with rice and steamed vegetables. The chicken was drizzled with a spicy dressing and my favorite white cheese sauce. My daughter had the Grilled Fajita Chicken Quesadilla, which came paired with a side salad and rice. Both of us really enjoyed our meals plus the servings were huge… too huge.
Something Special: The chips were homemade and the lady making them was working nonstop to keep the customers happy. The chips, extra-spicy salsa, as well as the white cheese dip were tasty.
Best Part of the Meal: My Grilled Chicken was cooked perfectly. The dressing and cheese sauce was a pleasing accompaniment. I thoroughly enjoyed this entire meal.
Have You Ever Noticed: The service in Mexican restaurants is always so fast and they greet you in such a prompt manner, which is appreciated.
Bonus: El Potrillo Mexican Grill & Cantina is tastefully decorated and has brilliant menus with color pictures and item descriptions.
What Needs Improvement: The bar, which is off to the right side of the restaurant, smelled like stale beer. It reminded me of walking down Bourbon Street.
My Rating Scale 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest): 8
