Bloody Brilliant Burritos

We grabbed the veggie burrito and the pork burrito for a take out lunch and were surprised by how awesome they were. They were served with lashings of their mild red sauce which added great flavour to the already bursting burritos. Make sure to get guacamole on the side- it's so fresh there's still... read more

Tried the daily special and shrimp and crab enchiladas. Delicious! The service was a little slow, but it was a busy Saturday night.

Given that I am trying to eat healthy, don't eat meat, this is still are really great place to nosh - and I hate going there too, too hungry, because they have the best salsa, bar none, and I will inhale it! They strive to have something for everyone. Their fare includes vegetarian black beans, but not rice. My hubby... More

This is a wonderful Mexican restaurant, on the way up to Mt Hood. We have a house at Welches so are there fairly often. Great food, never had a bad meal there, and the service is very good as well. Even when they get slammed on a weeknight the service is better then average. I would recommend this to anyone... More

It is the best Mexican restaurant which I tried in US. We visited 2 times and tried 5 plates. All plates were good! Mojito is also good. Service is very friendly.

I read all the great reviews, and thought, why write another? Because this place is great. We've eaten there 6 or 7 times now, and usually try something different every time. Every single dish has been great. I highly recommend the fajita salad. I had mine with shrimp. I'm not usually a big salad eater (you could probably tell if... More

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!!

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.
