“Always excellent food”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

I've been to Burro over 25 times. While the service varies from slow to perfectly timed, the food is excellent each time. Much time and effort has gone into preparing their dishes and it shows in the unique and flavorful options. My personal favorites are the Alamo Bowl to start, paired with a Cadillac Margarita. My entree varies between vegan, chicken and pork.

I write the expectation of any disappointments to a "serve me now" city mentality. Being in a tourist area, they can get slammed easily and one must wait for them to catch up.

“Great find!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

We had the daily special, which was pork belly tacos. They were excellent! The chips and house made salsa were great too! The only downside was the beans. They were pretty nondescript and a little runny. Overall, a very nice little vacation lunch surprise.

“Huge portions, excellent salsa and Mexican rice”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We went for dinner after a long hike. Chips and salsa were excellent. The entree portions were huge and we could barely finish them. Mexican rice and beans were exceptional.

“Excellent Homemade Mexican”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

While vacationing in Welches, we decided to do takeout from El Burro Loco. When we arrived to pick up our food, it was obvious that the place was packed with local residents (which is always a good sign). Our food ended up being delicious and you could tell that a lot of it was homemade including the guacamole, tortilla chips, taco shells, and fajita shells. We had the wild boar tacos, chicken tacos, chicken fajitas, and chicken burrito; everything was excellent.

“Lunch while passing through.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped in for a quick lunch and was blown away by the great food and beverages. I had the shrimp and it didn't disappoint. Tried a strawberry mage Rita's and loved it. Heard they have Logan berry when they are ripe. Yummy bar drinks. Fajitas were served at a table nearby and the looked and smelled wonderful. Be sure and drop by on your way to the mountain.
