Anybody for some Mexican? That was the question ringing through my house yesterdayevening. Of course the answer was a resounding "YES". But where to go? How about up to Greenville? Some pretty good eateries around the area. Been there, done that. Everybody goes to Greenville. Welllllll....
Laurens is overlooked many times when it comes to places to go out for food. It just seems that whenever someone goes out, they choose another city. In fact, Laurens has some wonderful places to eat, including our choice for the evening, Los Potreros Mexican Restaurant.
My mother-in-law, my wife and myself headed out, braving the remainder of our record snowfall and made our way to what we hoped would be a great meal.
We arrived a bit early (about 5:30pm) and found the parking lot fairly empty. Great! We found a parking space close to the front door and made our way in. The dining area wasn't quite empty but there was no dearth of booths in which to sit. The waiter (owner? cousin?) promptly appeared at our table and offered to take our drink order, which we were very happy to give. Then the obligatory chips (fresh fried) and site made salsa (both mild and hot) appeared as if by magic. Excellent.
We each ordered our meal (mine was Chimichangas ) and settled down to stuff ourselves with chips while waiting. It didn't take long. The cook certainly knew what he or she was doing. My plate was filled to overflowing with two fried, beef chimichangas along with shredded lettuce, tomato slice, sour cream, guacamole, re fried beans and cheese. Man! Everything went together perfectly and the Pina Collada on the side was the perfect complement to the meal. The waiter kept checking back every few minutes and making sure to assist us should we need anything.
My wife and mother-in-law complimented the kitchen on their orders as well. All in all it was a very good dinner and very affordable as well.
So, if you are in the Laurens area and have a taste for some Mexican food .. by all means check out Los Potreros, just down the street from Wall Mart. You will certainly enjoy it!
And tell the owners that you heard it here!!
