This is a wonderful family-owned restaurant where they use only the freshest ingredients. They grow most of their own peppers and some other vegetables on site, and carefully source their other ingredients. The food is then prepared using homemade recipes that are better renditions of well-known dishes. The difference is noticeable. I went there with a friend for a mid-afternoon... More

A family run restaurant, I have been going to for many years. Their chipotle sauce is damn good so I have them smother my enchiladas with it. Did I mention the owner grows his own jalapenos? I like frozen margaritas, a margarita machine would make this place heaven for me. Muy Bueno Robin, there is plenty of parking for the... More

This place is family owned and operated. It has excellent food. My favorite is the crispy taco. Beef brisket is the best. Lots of choices on the menu.

I was in the Omaha area on business and a local gave me a heads up to try out Lil' Burro. I went at lunch time. The atmosphere has that local "been around for years" vibe. It is worn/weathered, but appropriate for the environment. It fits that off the beaten path experience. The food was great. The portions are enormous.... More

We have been going to Lil Burro for a couple of years now , and not once have we not enjoyed our food. You see a lot of locals here on any given day . When we don't feel the best we are known to get a bowl of the Green Chili .. has just the right amount of heat... More

..I am not a huge fan of Omaha's Mexican restaurants, unless they are in South Omaha....Visited on a Wednesday around 6pm. Note that they are closed Sunday and Monday. There is a large menu, I had fish tacos with the cabbage salsa..different and very good. Generous portions but not ridiculously so. I found the service below average...but the owner was... More

The food is awesome. This restaurant is a favorite when I visit the Omaha area. Great, truly authentic Mexican dining. Locally owned and operated. When we lived in Bellevue, the first few months couldn't figure out why the parking lot was always overflowing... almost every night of the week. The trip to south Bellevue is worth it... and if there... More

Love the house bean dip with their yummy flour chips - we can make that a meal. The fajitas are great & we love the house margarita. Friendly staff. Great place!

This is one of our two favorite Mexican restaurants in Bellevue. The first time we went there, the outside appearance of the building made us a little skeptical about the quality of their food. We were pleasantly surprised when we realized we had nothing to worry about. Our server was very friendly and helped us choose our dinners. Great food... More
