I ate lunch here, El Potro is one of the old Mexican Restaurants in Brunswick and has built up a loyal base on returning customers. One reason is its lunch and dinner buffets. The food on the lunch buffet looked good. However, I did not want a heavy meal. So I asked to look at the menu. I spied something... More

Fast inexpensive Mexican food doesn't have to be poor quality. The cheese enchiladas and chili rellenos are great.

Did a buffet and it was not bad for the money. Had some grilled beef, rice, lettuce, onions and sprite. Now, since a buffet is whenever you go, there was plenty of variety and that for less than ten. Interior looks a little bit worn, but our expectations were average, so who to blame. No problem!

Buffet available lunch and dinner. Food is excellent. I love several menu items. My husband prefers the buffet. This restaurant is a favorite of our local Hispanics. Some staff members speak limited English but all are helpful.

We really enjoyed going to El Potro, they had a great attitude and were willing to modify practically anything on the menu to our taste and vegan preferences. They also had home made corn tortillas and lunch specials that were a great price and great portions, not huge and not too small, just right! We ordered my husbands meal and... More

After seeing the other reviews, we decided to try it. They have a buffet but we decided to order from the menu. The food on the buffet looked like it had been there for a while. Both our dishes were just okay. We eat Mexican at least twice a week and this did not measure up to other places we... More

I found nothing special about my order at this particular restaurant. We went for lunch and found that the food wasn't nearly as warm as it should have been. The enchiladas were somewhat bland. I can not comment on any other items as my party and I all had enchiladas. I will give it another try as restaurants all have... More

We breezed in to El Portro after a six-plus hour car ride to Jekyll Island. We picked this place on a whim, and almost turned back when we found that it was a buffet. But we were hungry and I was tired of driving, so we gave it a shot. Most of the stuff on the buffet was actually pretty... More
