Los Dos Potrillos Mexican Restaurant

This strip-mall Mexican restaurant often features mariachi bands playing loud Mexican folk music for appreciative families packed into the booths. Even without the bands, the din at Los Dos Potrillos can reach deafening heights — and the place is so dark, it can be tough to see. But you don't need to be able to read the giant menu to know that it features all the standards that mark a Mexican restaurant in this country, everything from enchiladas to menudo, turned out by a kitchen that doesn't shy away from the spice. Diners also take down basket after basket of complimentary chips and house-made salsa, washed down with plenty of margaritas — all delivered by a friendly and efficient staff of servers.
