If you are walking or riding a bike---great! But if you want to find a parking place, that can definitely be a challenge. I like my burrito with Gordonzola and Sauteed Veggies and the staff can be very accommodating. The Mahi Mahi Burrito is okay, but expensive and messy. This is a good takeout place but there is very limited... More

We decided to eat here due to the reviews. This is a counter service restaurant which was clean & open. There are about 8 small tables and about 6 stools in a window counter. Some seating outside & ample parking in a small lot or on the street. The workers were not overly friendly, but not rude. We ordered the... More

We stopped in for lunch.You order at the counter and the make them to your specifications: lettuce or cabbage, mild or spicy salsa, etc. They fix them wrapped in foil "boats" so that they are not so messy to eat. I had the fish, veggie and pork tacos and they were all delicious. The pork was the spiciest of the... More

We eat at El Diablo once a month or so, sometimes much more often, and it's one of our favorite places in Missoula. The previous review compares El Diablo to Chipotle, a national chain, but this is much, much better than any of the Chipotle outlets I've ever been to. This is fresh, creative, delicious food and a friendly place.... More

This restaurant is listed as a Mexican Restaurant but it isn't even close. Not the authentic atmosphere, nor the food. What you get is a Chipotle styled burrito or tacos. They are very good, the service is very friendly, and the price is good, just not a great place to sit down and enjoy an authentic Mexican meal.

I can never eat the whole thing! You get your choice of beef, pork, chicken or vegetarian burritos or tacos. I love the chicken burritos. You get to choose what you want to add to it. They are huge! The price is adequate for the amount of food.

This small spot serves fresh tacos and burritos. They burritos are big enough to split. The tacos come in orders of 3 but can be served in less quantities. I had a delicious pork taco and my Son had a chicken burrito that he split with a friend. Service was quick and cheerful!
