Los Dos Potrillos- This is a staple in the south suburbs. Family-owned, flavorful, authentic Mexican restaurant that features an impressive tequila selection and frozen margaritas. Always a longer line and you usually can call to put your name on the list and have a drink while you wait. This place has a fun, lively atmosphere. Favored entrées include the steak picado and the tacos de carnitas stuffed with pork, avocado, pico de gallo, and beans. You can wash down your chile with housemade beer, since the restaurant has its own brewery at its Parker location. Take-out is always an option too.
