Review of El Burro Loco

I have probably been to El Burro Loco twenty to thirty times as I live fairly close, and I would definitely recommend coming here over all the other mexican restaurants in St. Louis (we have tried about 5 or 6 in the area).

The chips and salsa are absolutely delicious, and the queso and guacamole are fantastic as well. Queso is always hot, and guac is always fresh.

Quesadillas are pretty standard, but their street tacos are phenomenal. My BF gets the chicken fajitas every time we go, and he loves them. The margaritas are great, and they offer many different flavors.

The service is somewhat spotty, we have had very friendly, prompt waitresses but have also had somewhat cold, slow waitresses. However, they always have a duo of guitar players that are entertaining.

The patio is fantastic, great people-watching in a prime part of town. I would recommend trying to get a table on the porch of the restaurant, rather than the seating on the sidewalk as it can get rather crowded with all the people walking by.

Went there on a Sunday afternoon. Have their Margarita pitcher, some tacos and burritos. Food was according to an Texmex cousine. They have live music that was entertainment. Margaritas were ok, but nothing expectacular.

We were craving nachos and stopped into El Burro Loco. The super nachos with beef and chicken were very good. The side guacamole was perfect and exactly what we were looking for after being at a Cardinals game. The margaritas hit the spot. Casual attire is definitely the route to go. Outside seating is available.

We went with friends to El Burro Loco. Previously we had been walking in the park and wanted to eat at a restaurant where our athlete attire would not feel out of place. EBL was our answer.

Our friends had eaten here before, but none of us were excited about the place by the end of the meal. We started with three different versions of a margarita; nothing special.

We ordered tacos, burritos and quesadillas. Again, nothing special.

EBL is well located, but the interior of the venue is roughly finished. It’s loud and the service is sporadic. They did have a roving two-piece guitar / trumpet combo that was entertaining.

There are better choices.

We ordered chicken enchiladas Verdes and chicken flautas, but they were very bland. The chicken fajitas didn't have any flavor to them as well. Margaritas were overpriced and the tequila they used was not of good quality. It had a weird taste and we felt nothing after an entire fishbowl. Waitress asked if we wanted to split the check but then she completely messed up the splitting into 2 checks and came back with 3? We just paid it like that so we could leave.

Wouldn't recommend unless you prefer food with not much taste.
