One of the best Po’boys in Southeast Texas can be found in one of the most unlikely of places.


‘Magic Mike’ 

Despite many 11th hour predictions that “Magic Mike” would top the raunchy teddy bear comedy “Ted” from Seth McFarlane, in the weekend box office wars, it did not happen. Still it was a record-breaking weekend as both movies exceeded profit expectations — a first for two openers on the same day. There is something to be said for giving the people what they want.


A Saturday night dinner date with my husband turned out to be a fun night at El Potrillo Mexican Restaurant in Beaumont. The brightly lit, festive atmosphere was the first thing to draw us into the cheery, comfortable and conveniently located eatery on the Eastex Freeway. Once inside, we found friendly servers and management, and very good food. When the salsa and chips were delivered to our table, we knew we were in good hands.
