We were well taken care of by Misael. There were 5 of us and all of our orders were perfect, the food was excellent, and the coffees were great. No one was disappointed and the portions are extremely generous.

Everyone knows El Burro, and just about everyone in the San Jose area has eaten there. It has a great outdoor area and a vast indoor area. It is quite popular, the food is good and the prices are good, as well. There are times...More
