Casualty of the new Immigration Reform Act. While all illegals are busy filling out their DNP registration cards and getting SSN's so they are now eligible to drain what is left of your Social Security contributions, the new minority...law-abiding, natural-born, taxpaying American citizens are left to fend for themselves when they get a hankering for Mexican food, a car wash, or landscaping.

Welcome to the New World Order. Hope and Change. There is no hope for you...keep the change left over from your paycheck.

Too bad. It was a great place with great people running it..... and really good food! I never had a complaint with El Porto's food or service. They were a class act.

That is too bad. We have ate there forever & have always had great service. Our waitress was always Patty & she made you feel like part of the family.

Owner of El Potro is also part owner of San Jose Mexican Grill located near Home Depot in Yulee. The menu is basically the same as El Potro.

Have not been to Mi Casa but am guessing that the person from El Potro working there now is Javier, Chino's brother.

The originator of the El Potro chain was a guy named Jamie something-or-other. That was a good 30 years ago. There are beau coup of them now. Don't know if it is the original owner still. I believe the first one was in Savannah.

I actually liked them better than the two full service ones we have left.

According to Chino there were 14 at one time but only six left. The only ones I know about is the one in Savannah, on Abercorn, and the one in Richmond Hill.

There is a very busy one on Hwy 80 in Pooler, GA.,
just west of I-95.

The last time I ate there, not only was the staff Mexican but the majority of the customers as well.

by the way, how is the sucker that took over Lucky Dogs doing laid out $5,000 of a local liquor license that has to be renewed in December.$10,000.00 to the city coffers What a deal. Over in Yulee it cost $1,000.00 for all the license guess he did not check to see how much the lay out was going to be.

There is a sucker born every day. Saint Marys will suck you dry if you do business here and throw you away just as soon as you complain.

Lucky Dawgs is packing them in.$5,000 is not a problem. But it is not $5,000 any way.

Agreed. Far and away the best and most authentic Mexican food I've had in Camden County -with the notable exception of my Mexican- American neighbor across the street.

Peppers is okay. Mi Casa sucks. As take out/fast food goes, Barberitos is quite good. Just not crazy about eating from a plastic basket. Go for take out and put it on a plate when you get home.
