This has been a family favorite of ours for many years. Great atmosphere, AMAZING food that won't empty your wallet. The service is always great. There may be a wait, might want to call in advance.

Have been going to this restaurant since the 1970's. Not much has changed, food is hot, tasty, and plentiful. Great place for family dinners, great beer and margarita selection. Hope this never goes away.

We have been visiting El Burro since I was a kid. Now I take my own family there. Not much has changed over the years. I'm particularly fond of the shredded beef, it's very lean (although a little dry, but I like it that way.

This looks like any Californian/Mexican - or anywhere/Mexican restaurant - from the 1990's, and the food brings back memories of Mexican comfort food at its best. The decor is dark and retro, there are lots of different rooms and spaces, but the food is what...More
