Lil' Burro Is Modest But has Very Good Food

Lil' Burro has very good Mexican food. Their specialty is a Chili Relleno with home grown chillies. I like their soft tacos (lightly fried.) I haven't had a bad meal there. The prices are very reasonable. Their chips and salsa are good. It is not fancy inside, but the service is usually very good.

We hadn't been here for awhile but were glad we came in tonight. They have several Tex-mex specialties that are always a hit. My husband says the shredded beef tacos are his favorite anywhere. I have a few favorites - the tequila chicken tacos, green chili, vegetable burritos, and snapper Veracruz. The tomato & green olive tapenade on the snapper... More

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!
