The restaurant had been busy, that was evident from the mountains of dirty dishes stacked on uncleared tables. We stood at the host station and waited. And waited. And waited. A waitress with frizzy hair growled that she would be with us. First, though she took orders, made drinks, checked someone's table. Eventually, we were seated. One entree came with... More

Although their salads, flautas & specials are always good, I can't seem to order anything but the absolute best tacos al pastor I've ever had. Truly, there is no comparison. We often plan our trips over the mtn just so we can stop here for lunch or dinner.

Love the Gunslinger Margarita! Awesome meal - Welches deserves this restaurant and the Restaurant deserves Welches. Thank you - keep doing what you do. My pet peeve is ... dirty windows! Really? You have people that are not busy all the time. WASH those windows! It makes you look cheap and trashy from a first impression.

We were very impressed with this little place. We sat outside for dinner and enjoyed the perfect weather. I had the seafood enchiladas and they were amazing. My husband loved his dinner as well as the chips and salsa.

Good food, great service, short wait time and excellent Margaritas. This place seems to be getting alittle dirty. The windows looked as if they hadnt been cleaned in years and the walls are showing some heavy dirt and food splatters.

This humble restaurant owned by two brothers is the best. When Mexican cooks in the kitchens of some of PDX's better restaurants showed the brothers how to cook really good tex-mex they decided to work for themselves and opened El Burro. Always try the specials, especially if they are doing carnitas with their Huckleberry B-Q sauce on the grill. Here... More

We grabbed the veggie burrito and the pork burrito for a take out lunch and were surprised by how awesome they were. They were served with lashings of their mild red sauce which added great flavour to the already bursting burritos. Make sure to get guacamole on the side- it's so fresh there's still large bits of avocado in it.... More

Tried the daily special and shrimp and crab enchiladas. Delicious! The service was a little slow, but it was a busy Saturday night.
