Everything was just fair, the service, drinks and food. Is not likely I will return even if in the area.

This authentic restaurant is located in a nondescript strip mall but has tasty Mexican food at a reasonable price. There is a bar area with TVs for those diners who want to watch sports. My husband and I like this spot for Mexican at Jax Beach.

Always fresh. Always good. Great family atmosphere. Love the Texas rice. They have a buffet but I have never tried it. It seems to be very popular though, so I'm guessing it's good.

In Jacksonville for a few days and wanted Mexican food and El Potro was pretty close so we tried it. Our waitress could not have cared less that we were even there. They have a buffet and were almost offended we asked for a menu. The buffet food seems to have sat out all day. A refill really offended our... More

There were five of us for dinner one evening in early February and we liked the atmosphere and courteous service. One in our group ate from the buffet bar and the rest of us ordered from the menu.

we went some time ago for lunch. the food was good, the selection average. But the deal was excellent and the service very good. I would suggest it if you are looking for a good value and good Mexican food.

We've tried this place three times but each time it seemed to get a little worse. The food could only be described as low average, waiters were not attentive and prices weren't that cheap. There are much better mexican restaurants in Jax
