So, who doesn’t like good Mexican food every once in a while? And by “while” I mean that it’s so good (and cheap) that you can’t stop having it more than once a week. El Potro is the place to go for your exotic desire.
Located five minutes away from Rollins campus, El Potro has been expanding the ethnic palette of Winter Park citizens since 1985. There you can find classic Mexican dishes such as enchiladas, carne asada, wonderful combo plates, and taco salad, and also a hearty buffet to pick from on select weekdays.
Focused on the small Winter Park community, the waiters, managers, and staff are more than friendly. They remember faces and names, they don’t mind a “tableside” conversation with their customers (they love when you speak Spanish…or just attempt), and they wouldn’t want anything more than to have you say you’re coming back for more.
Let’s just say they know my order by heart…
Food wise; a strong recommendation goes to the chicken quesadilla; the white queso is drizzled over pulled and steamed chicken, alongside grilled vegetables, refried beans, and rice.
Feeling like some drinks? The margaritas are a two for one special during happy hour… totaling to about $4.00. There’s no better deal. That deal follows with the food as well. Don’t expect to pay more than roughly $10.00 for a filling and vibrant dish. It’s almost unreal.
Don’t feel like being seen? You can call in your order for pick up! You just can’t beat it!
So grab your sombreros, save your appetite, and prepare yourself for a vibrant night of great food, cheap prices, and a beautiful positive vibe from this little Mexican place in the heart of Winter Park.
