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.

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.

I've been to a few of the local Mexican restaurants over the years and El Potrero is my favorite. I eat there at least once a month and every time the food and service has been great. The El Guerro special is great for meat...More
