Went to the sit-down restaurant during lunch with my 2 college children. Disappointed in very tiny, all ice margarita for $11 (tasted great, but i wanted more than 3 ounces of liquid). The enchiladas had a tomato sauce on them that had zero flavor. Needed loads of ancient, dirty bottles of hot sauce. Started with guacamole and chips and bit... More

A friend took me here for my birthday. I'm always on the lookout for real Mexican food. They offer various meat for tacos, burritos etc. I sampled all of them before ordering. The nice variety should accommodate a wide variety of tastes. Highly recommend.

We all had different plates and it was all good and shopped in the store too! It's the second time I've been there and always will try a little of everything and something different.

I have been to El Burrito Mercado for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Every time, I have had an AMAZING experience! All of the staff is very friendly. This is the best and most authentic Mexican food that I have ever had! I love buying stuff in the market as well to take home and enjoy throughout the week! All of... More

I love to go to the Burrito Mercado for lunch and then buying whatever looks good for dinner from the fresh salsa bar, ready made dinner options, and desserts. You just can't go wrong with anything you get!

We went through the lunch line rather than into the restaurant. The line moved quickly and people at the tables were courteous and moved along to open them up. I had the shrimp fajitas and was amazed at the number of large shrimp that were served. My fajitas and the tacos for my grandchildren and daughter were all delicious. The... More

It is not easy to find good Mexican food in the middle of North America and having recently returned from Mexico it was nice to compare the authenticity of El Burrito. The sauces in almost any dish really make or break them. This place does it well and they have a deli, bakery and market to boot in case you... More

I have dined at El Burrito Mercado many times over the past 15 years. This time I had them deliver to the MN State Capitol. Their chicken quesadilla and pork burrito's are both exceptional. When my House colleagues saw this food, they too decided to order. Since then, many orders have been placed at El Burrito and delivered to the... More

El Burrito Mercado is a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch, alone, with a friend, or with the whole family. A wide variety of good basic Mexican food (not fine dining) at relatively low prices. A cafeteria-style restaurant, grocery store and gift shop all in one, one can browse through the imported Mexican products for sale before or... More

Love the shredded spicy chicken, deli selections, chips and salsa. Lots of other great things too but they are my favorites.
