A favorite

I've know the owners for years. When I go back home I always go here. You just can't beat the service and the food. Its a very nice place to get good Tex-Mex food.

We arrived at our hotel after a long day travelling and decided to try El Burrito, right next to the hotel and the highway. Having grown very fond of Mexican food since moving to Texas, I have found out what is good (in my opinion) and what is plain ole TexMex - this food here was awesome, I enjoyed every... More

If you are looking for bland and unseasoned food then this is the place for you. The salsa tasted like tomatoes with no flavor. As I was paying on my way out I told the cashier the food was bland and flavorless when she asked how everything was. She told me this is how their customers like it with very... More

Just ate here with hubby. We shared the beef fajitas for two which were good, and the setup of pico, guacamole, and sour cream were fresh. Not grilled over a flame but tender and tasty. Charro beans were ok. We asked for the hotter salsa and got a spicy hot green one and a warm heated red sauce so you... More

I always get the fajitas for 2-shrimp, chicken and beef. This is the first place I ate out with my ex-wife, love you and miss you Jennifer! I always get extra guacamole and sour cream.

The person waiting on me was very nice, but it is bad to order a to go order and you receive a small amount of salsas, really it is the amount to put on a hamburger. I had a large bag of chips but no salsa. Not worth going again

This is a pretty run of the mill mexican place, but it is very popular in this area, because they don't have a lot of choices. Still you can't really complain, good food at decent prices, good beer prices, but they don't have anything on tap. Menu was a little overcrowded.

I have eaten here twice in the last 6 months while in the area to fish. The food is okay; not bad, not great. It's Tex/Mex like we ate at Monterrey House in the 70's and 80's. I don't know why folks expect to get great Tex/Mex in a small East Texas town and are upset when they don't; it's... More

We had lunch at El Burrito on way through from Houston. The location is very convenient right on the highway. The staff was very friendly, but food is average at best, My chili relleno had so much cheese poured on top that I had to remove about half of it. The refried beans are good and salsa is fairly good.... More
