With most restaurants, you probably have your "go to item" that you always order... Not at Lil' Burro. The Menu is so diverse, there are several items that are my favorite. Such as; Chicken Tequila Tacos, Chile Poblano, Snapper Vera Cruz, Chicken Chipotle.... not to mention the best Margaritas around. The Owner, Shane, is always around and will always stop... More

I was first exposed to Mexican cuisine over 50 years ago in the home of Mexican Americans. So I would say I am a little picky about it. We lived in Omaha until 14 years ago and we discovered Lil Burro when we moved to Bellevue. We love it. We have taken friends and family there and they love it.... More

This is a great place to have a nice lunch or dinner. The owners do a great job at putting their twist on food. The staff has always been accommodating about special requests. We have never had problems getting refills on chips or drinks, so I am not sure what the previous reviewer had experienced. I love the chimis!. My... More

Went here due to reviews. It was just ok. Margarita was not the best I have had. Spent $50 and 2 out of the 4 ordered a la carte so bill shouldn't have been this high. U only get one free refill on soft drinks and only one basket of chips. I wouldn't go back nor would I recommend.

We found Lil Burro on Trip Advisor as the number four restaurant in Bellevue. I would say it is number one in Bellevue and probably the best Mexican restaurant in the Metro. Owner Shane is onsite to insure quality. We will definitely return!

The atmosphere of stain glass, and retro signs inside, classic cars often outside and evidence of a family run business everywhere, including a small toddler in training, are only a side note to the actual food. I am a regular, I have many favs..including Snapper Vera Cruz, Chicken tequila tacos, and their chili poblano pepper and their enchilada sauce is... More

You know the margaritas are good when they make them themselves and they won't tell you what is in them. I wish I could have more of them at lucnh but it is probably good that I can't. The food is great too. I love their shredded beef chimichangas and tamales. There tacos are good and they have regular food... More

The owner took a chance years ago to forego the AF for this business. I can safely say he made an exceptional choice. Bold tastes, great service, and a relaxed atmosphere were morphed from his and his wife's love for food and sharing kindness. Don't drive by---STOP!

I continually return to the Lil' Burro Mexican Restaurant. The wait staff is always polite and friendly. The pre-dining chips are always warm and the salsa taste is bold. If you like your salsa with a tang, you can ask for some hot salsa.We have ordered the same entrees at various times during the year and the taste, consistency, and... More

I had the pleasure of having the Chili Relleno. It had a great smokey flavor with just the right amount of zing to satisfy my love of spicy. I think the re-fried beans were a bit over abundant, but that beats not enough.
