Triple Horsepower at Los 3 Potrillos in Conway.
One of the local joints I like is Los 3 Potrillos (“The Three Stallions”). The wide open restaurant in the Howard Johnson has all the favorites and more… and the margaritas range on the maddeningly sweet side. The cheese dip is white and the chips are golden yellow.
Burritos are long and slender rather than fat and chunky, but they’re substantial enough. I’ve tried the Burrito Especial ($4.99) with its expected ground beef inside and such. I prefer the Burrito Mexicano ($5.99), filled with shredded beef sautéed with tomatoes, onions and bell peppers. Each is topped with more of the “white sauce” (read: more cheese dip), lettuce, tomato and sour cream. They’re fork burritos rather than the sort you pick up and eat with your hands. They are tasty.
Los 3 Potrillos does serve alcohol. It’s not write-home good, but it is decent, and I like the fact that it’s decent on both taste and price. You’ll find it at 1090 Skyline Drive (Highway 65) in Conway. They’re open every day for lunch and dinner. (501) 327-1144. Find the menu here.
