A fresh Mexican experience

Potrillos Taqueria y Neveria expected to open in late July

Sergio Villasenor, manager and co-owner of Potrillos Taqueria y Neveria, a new restaurant coming to Farragut, shows a couple of the fruit dishes that will be served in the restaurant. Mango ice cream, left, is combined with four different fruits covered with a chili and tamarind sauce while a piña loca includes fruit inside of a pineapple shell. Potrillos Taqueria y Neveria, a new business coming to Farragut, will be bringing a fresh experience in Mexican cuisine to Town.

The restaurant is expected to open in late July at 11151 Kingston Pike, Sergio Villasenor, co-owner and restaurant manager, said.

Villasenor has partnered with Farragut’s El Mezcal Mexican Restaurant owners, Arturo Leon, Gabino Ruvio and Eugenio Gomez, to open Potrillos Taqueria y Neveria. The owners had their sons, to whom they refer as “young colts,” in mind when they came up with the name of the business, Villasenor said.

Potrillos, in English, translates to “young horses” while taqueria translates to tacos and neveria translates to ice cream, he said.

“We started with the idea a couple months ago,” Villasenor said. “I brought this idea to them and they loved it.”
