My group ate here three times after we discovered it. I have to say, up front, that I am picky about the Mexican restaurants I eat at. Usually I don't like anything outside the usual place I go back home. That being said, I'm ready to move to this one, unfortunately it's 8 hours away from my home.... Wife won't... More

Wow! A great meal! We were not really in the mood for Mexican but picked this restaurant out of the blue during our stopover in Ontario. Service was friendly and very quick and the food was excellent. Flavours were delicious starting with the salsa, chips and Refried beans that were promptly brought to our table. A crab and shrimp Chimichanga... More

When working in Ontario a few years ago, we found Los Potrillos to be a really fine restaurant. The food was very good, especially for a small town in eastern Oregon. The service was good, too. But something happened in between last year and a few weeks ago - the service went away. While not 5 star, the service was... More

For service, I would rate this restaurant a 1. Because the food was good, I am rating it a 3. My husband and I went for lunch on a Tuesday. He ordered steak fajitas; I ordered chicken fajitas. The meals were served with a good-sized portion of rice and beans. We only received 4 small flour tortillas to share between... More

This was some good food. The salsa was very flavorful. The steak in my burrito was quality. No grisly chunks. We ordered a combo platter, and my family loved the quesadillas and chicken rancheros. The decor is intriguing and colorful.

It was getting late so we pulled of the freeway in Ontario to grab a quick dinner. Most places were closed but we found Los Potrillos. The place as not busy, but we were not seated very quickly and then it took a while for a waiter to take our order. We both ordered enchiladas. The food was average, but... More

This is one of the few restaurants in our area that makes my favorite dish. The tender meat has that just-right grilled flavor, guacamole is the perfect accompaniment. When can we return?
