The food here is always great. They have 16 beers on tap the changes regularly. It's actually hard to decide what to have for dinner because there is so much. We went away stuffed at a reasonable price. We will be back

We hit Welches around noon on a Monday and found few places open and settled on El Burro Loco. They had a few vegetarian options, I had a burrito with some grilled veggies and a paste of what I assumed was re-fried black beans. My wife went with a taco salad, hod the meat. Portions were large enough that we... More

I've loved this restaurant since it opened! A fun environment, great food, and amazing drinks! Since I've moved away from Oregon I always make sure to stop in the Burro when I am down that way for a visit!

This place is so good. I had the wild boar tacos and they were so delicious. Comes with rice, beans, guacamole and 3 soft shelled tortillas full of meat. It was yummy. I would go back every time I am visiting on the mountain.

The only Mexican Restaurant in Hoodland area has gone downhill. We have regularly frequented EBL since opening and noticed changes. If you are a mexican restaurant, chips are the first thing served. They really should be fresh, not old and stale. When telling the older waitress she waved her hand flippantly and said "that's all we got". Our regular waitress... More

We have been frequent customers here since their opening. Never again! A Mexican Restaurant serving stale tortilla chips is absolutely criminal. When we informed the staff we were told it was all they had! Really. We cut our loss, paid for the beer we drank while waiting for our meal and just left. Completely inexcusable. Hopefully someone else has a... More

Stopped in for an early dinner just last week while we were passing through Mt. Hood. The service was great and the food excellent. The menu gave lots of options and we were delighted with the experience.

Was hoping this would be an option for us since we travel this road often. Especially optimistic since reviews stated vegan options available. However disappointed in the food overall. Would describe the flavor as bland. Ordered the mushroom tamales and they seemed like they were made with canned mushrooms. The guacamole was watery and flavorless. Since the rice was made... More

My shredded beef taco salad was so salty I could not eat it. I even tried to take a small piece of beef and dilute it with lots of lettuce but it was still too salty. The charge was removed from our bill but I went next door to get a bagel and coffee rather than try anything else.

I don't think this is usually a problem for most, however when a meal is overwhelmed by one ingredient it is.. I ordered the taco salad. It had to come with almost a pound of shredded chicken on top of the salad. My husband got the Chicken Flautas. These also were so over stuffed with chicken that it had no... More
