I have to say that this restaurant prepares some good food. Granted, I only get the cheese enchiladas w/beans and rice but it's some darn good food. The salsa and chips are done right as well. One of my two fave mexican restaurants in town.

Good comfort Mexican food. One of our overall favorite spots in the area. The staff have been able to take care of just us two and when we've had groups of 12.

Fajitas good. Odd that the toppings don't come with it. Only pick three and the rest is a charge. Have enjoyed this meal in Swartz Creek location and the portion is larger. Cheese sauce really good, which I hadn't tried before! Server was nice, possibly...More

El Potrero served excellent food at this location. We ordered to go and the food was visually appealing, hot and flavorful. This was our first time in Michigan, so we were pleased.

Very good food and great service. Best corn tortillas in the shrimp enchiladas. They were so soft and tasty and the shrimp was nice - not dried up little things. Chips and salsa came with my meal. Loved both. I was dining alone so I...More

Update on El Potrero, Fenton MI I called on 10/16/15 to ask if they were still charging the "administrative fee" to the customer. I was told that they stopped doing that a couple weeks ago. Yeah! Maybe enough patrons questioned the extra charges on their bills! To be sure, call ahead and confirm! Thank you!
