FANTASTIC Margaritas and Mexican Food!!

How could you go wrong if you have a good seasonal flavored margarita and fresh mexican food! You completely get your money's worth with oversize burritos, large bowl of chips and their yummy salsa! If you are around during Hood Strawberry season their Hood Strawberry Margarita is to die for!!

We stopped this morning on our way over the mountain, the food was amazing as always I wish they had one in the metro Portland area.

My wife and I live near Mt. Hood and when we want Mexican we stop at El Burro Loco in Welches. The place is always busy even in the off-season as the locals keep it quite busy. I really enjoy their enchiladas and my wife their burritos. Be sure to try their Blood Orange Marguerites if they offer them; they... More

The food was good, service friendly, quick, and accurate. We went a few miles out of our way to return, having visited several years ago. We had chicken enchilada and chili rellenos. Hubby likes dark beers and they had one that was suitable and we bought a growler to take home. We'll return.

A very casual place, and the food was excellent. The burrito was "as big as your head". My margarita was very flavorful. The portions/quality of the food for the price was outstanding. We visited several Mexican restaurants in the 17 days we were in Oregon, but this was definitely the best.

Stopped here after hiking at Mt. Hood and Trillium Lake on the way back to Portland. It was busy but a large picnic table was available out back. It was a warm day and perfect to sit outside. Chips and salsa came quickly and were very good. We waited a while for our dinners. Service was a little on the... More

We went to El Burro Loco for lunch, not realizing we would have enough food for dinner too. It is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Huge portions, delicious food, great service and a very friendly staff. Prices were very reasonable especially if you consider the amount of food you get. Shouldn't be missed

Great food, friendly staff and affordable too. Don't miss the Shrimp dish--is fabulous. So much good food tucked in this mountain community. Worth the trip.

I've been to Burro over 25 times. While the service varies from slow to perfectly timed, the food is excellent each time. Much time and effort has gone into preparing their dishes and it shows in the unique and flavorful options. My personal favorites are the Alamo Bowl to start, paired with a Cadillac Margarita. My entree varies between vegan,... More

We had the daily special, which was pork belly tacos. They were excellent! The chips and house made salsa were great too! The only downside was the beans. They were pretty nondescript and a little runny. Overall, a very nice little vacation lunch surprise.
