Great family lunch or dinner

Lil' Burro has fresh food and good service. Their fajitas are the best! It's worth tracking down this hidden gem.

Very authentic food (I was raised in El Paso, TX where I ate more Mexican food than American. Wait staff is very nice and attentive. Retro atmosphere. Nice place to go.

I am so glad that Lil Burro is just up the street. I admire and appreciate their authentic Mexican food. I love all of it, and am grateful that they stay open and family orientated.

My future SIL wanted to take us out, and he chose here. Said the Margaritas were awesome (they are good!) Service was great, we went on a Thursday night, about an hour before closing and no problems getting seated. Very friendly staff, super attentive! Immediately served chips and salsa, order was taken pretty quickly. Good atmosphere - cozy interior, great... More

I need to go back here, in fact I will as soon and I get back in town. This place is downright good, the portions are as if you're down south, and the service is excellent. Can't seem to remember what I got (some sort of combo plate), but it was great! Humble looking place, but you won't regret stopping... More

We had heard glowing reviews about this place so we decided to try it. Our server was a little odd in that she wasn't all that professional (not that I expect five star service at a joint like this but she told us something odd personal info). The chips and salsa were just average, but at least they were complimentary.... More

We love going to Lil Burro! The food never fails to tantalize our taste buds and the margs are exactly what the doctor ordered, tasty and strong! WE always get the spicy pork cheese dip to start and our favorite two dishes are shredded beef chimichanga and chicken chipotle. My daughter always gets the teriyaki chicken sandwich and she loves...
