Especially for the north, this is an excellent Mexican restaurant (and I'm from Texas). Authentic Tex-Mex with a very Mexicano atmosphere. The owners are great and make you feel right at home.

Was up helping the college kid get settled in, he wanted to stop here for lunch. I was skeptical, it's in a strip mall and from the outside (yes...I judged the book by its cover) I wasn't expecting much. It's much larger than it looks outwardly. The décor inside totally took me by surprise - so colorful and cheery, it... More

We love this place! Browsing their expansive menu over margaritas and complimentary chips and salsa is the way to go after a busy day at work! The food is delicious and the service is great. You won't be disappointed!

Our daughter attends a University in Grand Rapids, we spend many weekends traveling from the north to visit her sporting events. This restaurant is located right off the highway. Food was great, served up quick and very, very hot! Fun Mexican decor also. Huge menu with lots to choose from. Portions are large, so go hungry!

Big Rapids, MI does not have that many places to eat, but when we want to eat someplace a step up from fast food we often choose El Burrito. The prices are still reasonable and the service is fast. A basket full of freshly fried chips arrive seconds after you sit down and the drink order it taken right away.... More

After seeing a picture of one of their dishes, I was excited to try their food. Unfortunately I guessed wrong so I didn't get the entree that I was looking for which was my own fault. I didn't get a chance to see the menu since my husband brought the food home after work. I wish the menu was online... More

The food is great and comes out so fast. They always have a daily lunch, dinner and drink special, its listed on the board in between the doors as you come in so look for it because they don't tell you about the specials. Margaritas are tasty plus a huge tequila selection.

Thank Mark D
