El Burro 's carne asada is the best. Let me tell you, I've eaten at all the Mexican places in all of So Cal. Roberto's in Carmel Valley has some pretty dang good carne too, but El Burro's is magnitudes of greatness higher. El Burro should be renamed to The Best Carne Asada in So Cal.
Just spent $35 for a Tijuana xolos burrito a Mexican pizza and five rolled tacos. Ask the guy at the window for carrots told me that's an extra $2 plus. unbelievable! Got home. Open my burrito and it's about the size of a $4 burrito for a little kid. I keep trying this place like a dummy and keep getting disappointed every time. Never again!
Ordered an American Surf n Turf burrito and a Surf and Turf quesadilla. The burrito was a good size but mainly because there were so many beans which did not help it taste any better. The shrimp quesadilla was also a good serving however it was quite salty. There are other places in town with better Surf and Turf items.
I was hungry for breakfast this morning and wanted to try something new and found El Burro Taco Shop as an option in my search. I have seen the place many times as I was picking up food orders, but I don?t frequent the area often, so I never went there. I was happy to see it for delivery and I decided to give the place a try! As is my tradition, I will start with the ?As Delivered? section of the review. I provide only one photo here as there wasn?t anything special. I will say though, I asked for side containers with my order in addition to the 8 oz Salsa that I paid for, and I did not receive them. Not quite sure why, but I will say that the 8oz container (1/2 pint label on menu) is enough if you?re just looking to dip a few chips and add some to each bite of your burrito like I do. Time to look at the first item, which is a Shredded Beef Hard Shell Taco. I put it leaning against the salsa as it simply wouldn?t stand up!! I found this to be a tasty taco as a whole and it went well with the salsa. That said, the shredded beef was a bit like jerky and I did not like having the meat come out as I was taking a bite. As a whole though, I really did enjoy this taco, so if you can tolerate that, it is a great taco to eat! The second round of photos is the Carne Combo Breakfast Burrito. I took a photo after I unwrapped it, sliced it in half, and then took a photo of each side as if you were going to eat it. Now, I wasn?t sure what to get as I have never ordered from here, but I was quite pleased! The potatoes were a good size, well cooked, and I thought the balance of ingredients was excellent! Among the most important of things, if one considers the meats in this burrito, is the fact that it was not greasy at all. Everything was perfect and if you like meat without a grease bomb, definitely check this one out! The third item here is the Ham, Egg, Potato, and Cheese Burrito (Gringo Breakfast Burrito on menu). I provided a photo of the burrito, and as before I cut it in half and took a photo of each side so you can see the distribution of ingredients. Quite happy with this item and once again we did not have a burrito that is dripping grease. I was quite pleased with this burrito as well and have no complaints. The flavor of the ham was great, and I didn?t get any of those pesky pieces of non-chewable ham that you sometimes get from places. This burrito is also an excellent choice! Final Verdict: There is not much to complain about where El Burro Taco Shop is concerned! I really enjoyed the salsa that they had and found that it had a nice level of heat to it. As a whole, it really complimented each of the items that I reviewed above. You might want to ask if you want side containers as I?m not quite sure on that one, but the ½ pint of salsa they offer on their menu seems to be more than adequate for a generous application. There are a lot of great places to get a good breakfast burrito from, but I would easily put this in my
We were heading to lake skinner and we stoped to buy some food. We paid $39 for 2 persons, thats fine, but we could not ear the taco fries because you guys did not put forks. Even napkins! How much does it cost you to put 2 forks and some napkins?!
Small hidden spot. Has a drive-thru. Food is exceptional. The burritos might be a slightly smaller than what you're accustomed to from other places. This place is in the same bldg as the gas station store but separate suites.
We eat here frequently (twice a month) and love the food, as a matter of fact, I?ve always recommended them to people looking for great Mexican food. However we have noticed a change the last two times we went. While the food is still tasty, the presentation of the dishes has become sloppy and errors on our orders are now commonplace. Last night was the absolute worst. When you go to El Burro Taco Shop French Valley and order no beans and come home with a plate full of beans, it?s a definite letdown. The rice, which is usually fluffy, flavorful and absolutely delicious was hard and crusty to the point that it was inedible. I had to throw half my dinner in the trash. While the plating was ugly, the enchiladas were still mouthwateringly delicious, hence my 2-star rating. If you like Mexican food and can get past things like order screw ups and sloppy plating that leaks all over everything in the bag, then give them a try. If those kind of issues are a problem for you, like they are for me, then you?d do better to avoid this place!
Sometimes, life gives you a sign and it?s pointing to tacos. When life points the way to tacos I listen. Often times it results in some amazing experiences. El Burro is one of those places. I saw a sign that said tacos and I made in that direction. I passed 4 other Mexican places on my way to El Burro, based on the tacos that I had, I made the right decision. I ordered the street tacos which come in a 3 pack of your choice of meat for about $2/taco. You can mix your protein choices and try a little bit of each. Living in SoCal I?ve had a lot of tacos, some more authentic than others, and some that hardly qualified as good, these tacos stand out as being exceptionally delicious. El Burro is definitely a place I?ll be returning.
