I've visited Mexico several times and think I have the experience to say that this restaurant does Mexican food well. I've had lunch there with friends and find the location, and the ambiance superb, not to mention the food. Prices are good too. Great place!

My son took his girlfriend here for his 21st birthday dinner. I called the manager Sarah in advance to set up a surprise for them. Sarah and her staff went all out to help me and make sure that the dinner was a lovely treat for them. They loved the dinner and we are looking forward to eating there next time we are in town, El Cortijo staff truly work to make sure their customers are happy.

Love the food, ambiance, location -- and people. A bit off the beaten track, it's really on one of the more interesting side streets just off Church street. Love going there.

A bartender at a brewery we visited recommended we check this place out for great Mexican food - and we were not disappointed! We went on a Friday night and had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, not too bad for a small place. Our waitress was attentive and service was fairly quick. The queso was fantastic and the fish tacos were also very good. Definitely a great place in Burlington!

Fresh and extremely tasty nachos to start, followed by delicious fish tacos and kale butternut squash tacos. Both incredibly flavorful. Prickly pear margarita was delicious with the added upgrade tequila. Worth a visit.
