Margaritas and mariachi musicians liven up the dining room at El Potro Mexican Bar and Grill, serving Boston-area families some of the best Tex Mex in the region.
Four locations in Malden, Somerville, Lowell, and Chelsea mean there’s always an El Potro nearby, and the menus live up to high expectations.Enchiladas, fajitas, tacos, and burritos are a great way to go, but entree dishes step up the excitement.
Try the chilaquiles mi rancho (tortilla chips sautéed in homemade sauce, served with a grilled steak and a fried egg) or Tres Compadres (charbroiled steak, chicken, and grilled shrimp served with rice, beans, salad, and tortillas).
Nearly forty types of tequila are at the bar, but nonalcoholic selections dazzle the palate as well. It’s simply hard to go wrong with El Potro, no matter which location you visit.
