Seriously the best mexican food I've ever had. We ate here on our trip to St. Paul. I wish I lived closer so I could come here all the time. Staff was very friendly.

I've only eaten lunch from the cafeteria line in the grocery store area and not in the sit-down restaurant at dinner. The food is really good and very authentic; where else you going to find Posole soup for lunch? Have taken coworkers who are Mexican...More

Great lunch buffet with many of El Burrito Mercado's incomparable glissades, rice, beans, enchiladas, and taco makings. The restaurant was packed! Friendly service.
