You’ll feel like you stepped into a kids’ coloring book of Mexico when you walk into the tiny but festive space that is El Potro. And the bright colors extend beyond the charro wall murals to a fun menu of strong margaritas and big plates of Mexican standards. The tacos are great, but if you’re not in the mood for something tortilla-based, go with the house steak that comes with pico de gallo and cheese.
