Four of us went to this restaurant the last day we were in the Welches area. It was a Thursday night and there was a wait, ten to fifteen minutes. The back room was not open, and it took a while for the staff to clean a few open tables, but once they did, the staff was quite helpful. Also,... More

A person at the hotel pool gave this place rave reviews. He was right. The only fault I had was the long wait and disorganized front wait staff. Once were seated, our waiter was very friendly and sweet to our small grandkids who were hungry and tired with the wait to be seated. The burritos were gigantic and delicious. When... More

stopped in on our drive to Portland and had a burrito that was the size of my head. Being from Texas I didn't expect great Tex Mex in Oregon but it satisfied my craving. Salsa and chips were ok, they give tons of food with every meal - you can probably half every dish.

A group of us went to El Burro Loco to eat and discuss light business -- and had a great time. We made the "mistake" of ordering a couple of platters of the large nachos. They were terrific, but we almost had no room left for our entrees. Mine was the Monster Burrito with pork al pastor. I enjoyed it,... More

We stopped in to order a burrito to go during a heat wave. We shared a beer and waited quite a while at the bar. Normally such a long wait would irritate me but they were really busy and all the staff was super nice. I enjoyed watching them work together so well despite the oppressive heat. Every new face...

This is definitely one of the places you have got to try if you travel to or over Mt. Hood. The Boar Tacos are to die for and the Chili Verde appetizer is a meal in itself. Good selection of beers on tap or try one of their custom margaritas. Small place so you may have to wait a bit,... More

This is our preferred Mexican place and worth the little drive up the Mountain! Their specials are always delicious no matter what they are and they have the BEST Margarita's, both house and seasonal. It's small and some might also feel under staffed but we don't mind the wait and always have great service. Very happy they decided to make... More

Usually quite crowded. A very easy going but efficient wait staff. Food is tasty and the portions are pretty generous. Great margaritas. They do have outside seating available.

Always try to stop here after camping or fishing trips to Mt. Hood. It has fantastic Mexican food, try the wild bore taco's.
