A group of us went to El Burro Loco to eat and discuss light business -- and had a great time. We made the "mistake" of ordering a couple of platters of the large nachos. They were terrific, but we almost had no room left for our entrees. Mine was the Monster Burrito with pork al pastor. I enjoyed it,... More

We stopped in to order a burrito to go during a heat wave. We shared a beer and waited quite a while at the bar. Normally such a long wait would irritate me but they were really busy and all the staff was super nice. I enjoyed watching them work together so well despite the oppressive heat. Every new face...

This is definitely one of the places you have got to try if you travel to or over Mt. Hood. The Boar Tacos are to die for and the Chili Verde appetizer is a meal in itself. Good selection of beers on tap or try one of their custom margaritas. Small place so you may have to wait a bit,... More

This is our preferred Mexican place and worth the little drive up the Mountain! Their specials are always delicious no matter what they are and they have the BEST Margarita's, both house and seasonal. It's small and some might also feel under staffed but we don't mind the wait and always have great service. Very happy they decided to make... More

Usually quite crowded. A very easy going but efficient wait staff. Food is tasty and the portions are pretty generous. Great margaritas. They do have outside seating available.

Always try to stop here after camping or fishing trips to Mt. Hood. It has fantastic Mexican food, try the wild bore taco's.

We stayed in the area for a week and ate at El Burro Loco three times! The atmosphere is fun, they have outdoor seating, the staff is attentive and the food is excellent. If you're sensitive to spicy food, order with care around the sauces, but otherwise no worries for me. We're vegetarians, and they had plenty of choices for... More

Stopped in for dinner while passing through the area. We were so pleased with our meal. Everything we had was wonderful, with just a bit of a twist from the norm. The Open Face Smoked Pork Enchilada was wonderful! It was a nice day so we chose to dine outside which was pleasant. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.... More

One of only a few restaurants in this area. Lucky us: we went there and had a great Mexican dinner. Owned by 2 brothers from Michigan (and there are some Michigan relics mixed into the Mexican theme). The staff are very friendly and helpful. My wife's margarita was the "best" she had every had. Food was very good with some... More
