Everyone knows El Burro, and just about everyone in the San Jose area has eaten there. It has a great outdoor area and a vast indoor area. It is quite popular, the food is good and the prices are good, as well. There are times...More

I went there last night with friends. The pros - large servings of food at a decent price with fast service even when full. The chefs seemingly love cheese cuz you get about a pound with every dish. The cons - loud, everything is sauced,...More

The restaurant still has the 70's vibe. The food is a bit Americanized Mexican food, but still very good. All 3 of us enjoyed our lunch. The portions were not huge, but just the right size.

There's a lot of construction all around so getting in is a little challenging. Large menu. Food was fine, not great. Prices seemed a bit high but maybe I wouldn't have noticed if the food was more special. Good place to take a large group...More

Recommended. There are a LOT of real Mexican restaurants in the area, and this is one of the better ones. Fajitas are especially good. Margaritas are excellent.

This place is always busy. The weekends are packed with the younger set. Everything is good but I am partial to the enchiladas. I meet with friends there quite often. Perfect people watching location, awesome food, great prices. They sell a lot of beer and...More
