Real Mexican food

This is the real deal, not like all the other "Mexican" restaurants in town, this is where the "Mexicans" go when they don't want to cook at home.

Note this restaurant doesn't accept credit and serves no alcohol. Love this place. Guacamole is delicious. Food is fresh and staff are polite. This is the only Mexican restaurant to go to in Burlington.

Conrad and Maria serve authentic Mexican cuisine. I love their vegetarian combo platter. The chili releno tacos are also a favorite of mine.

This is a little Mexican place near downtown. I felt the food was very greasy and only so so. Bring cash because they do not take anything else.

The food is good, especially in burlington but in America when food is given to you that you haven't ordered ie chips and salsa it is assumed it is complimentary especially at a Mexican restaurant. I couldn't understand why our lunch bill was so expensive and was told there is a charge for chips and salsa. It was nowhere on... More

The food is good and the owners are very friendly. Nice atmosphere. Very reasonable price. Many people you will see there every week. Many repeat customers, guess that says a lot too.

I am originally from Burlington, so when I come to visit, I like to eat at the local places. I have eaten here several times with my family and I enjoy the food most of the time. The service has always been bad. They only take cash, they only serve soda in bottles or cans, the initial chips and salsa... More
