We used a dot com deal from Twin Cities Live to try this place out. TCL had done a piece on it and it looked so good! We were so happy it tastes as good as it looks. There is a lot of parking out back but it was full so we parked across the street from the parking lot... More

Eating at El Burrito is always a tasty experience. But we had them cater a party and that was truly a five star performance. The food was terrific and they did a great job of setting up and serving.

In this large Hispanic grocery store complex you'll find an outstanding deli as well as hard-to-find local Hispanic and imported Mexican foods and gifts. I actually found some huitlacoche in the store for an authentic recipe I was preparing!

Authentic Mexican fare served cafeteria style. The meals are great. But do not expect a fine dining experience. I would suggest this place for lunch or early dinner. Just as good, pick up handmade Mexican foods at the grocery store for re-heating at home.

Friend after friend after friend kept telling me I had to stop by this place located in the West Side neighborhood of St. Paul (south bank). My wife and I have shopped at the Mercado for delicious ingredients to make our own Mexican dinners (like it's anything close to authentic...), but never stopped in to try the food at the... More

Other reviews mention it, El Burrito Mercado is different. It is not your surburban Mexican restaurant with combination platters covered with cheese. Some people are put off by the diverse west-side neighborhood, or the grocery store that you enter when you walk in the door, or by the amounts of people speaking Spanish. There is a service counter if you... More
