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

I have ate in both the restaurant and gone through the cafeteria line. Both services were very quick. The food is excellent, very authentic. Having just returned from a Mexican vacation less than a week before my visit, I can honestly say it took me back to the Mercado we shopped at and the restuarants we enjoyed there. With the... More

First time there, the food is very good, great service and good price. The products used for the meal were fresh and tasty. Best Mexican restaurant in town.

Great food, great service and atmosphere. Authentic grocery store, buffet and restaurant. Hungry for Mexican food, we stopped for lunch before going to the theater. The masa was great and food was tasty. A must stop for authentic food.

My husband texted me earlier today and teased me saying that he was at El Burrito Mercado eating lunch. I was so jealous. We haven't lived anywhere near there in years and I do get a craving for it sometimes but it is so far away. After about 20 min., I couldn't take it and I texted him and told... More
