“Authentic Tex-Mex in CA”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Very pleasantly surprised to find the real thing (i.e., authentic Tex-Mex) out in Northern California. I'd become accustomed to the differences since coming out West and was happy to treat my taste buds to the good old familiar flavors. Staff was congenial, atmosphere conducive to conversation (you could hear yourself think) and we had an all around fabulous meal.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went for lunch here. Good choice and excellent value for money. Service was efficient and Friendly. Margaritas were great!
I have given it 4 stars rather than 5 because it lacked atmosphere but it was lunchtime. Will go back again when i am in Town!

“Favorite Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

El Burro Restaurant in Newark, California, has been around for 20+ years. The food is traditional mexican and the margaritas are great. My family and I drive 40 miles to have dinner here for special occasions. The atmosphere may not be perfect, but the food is great. Prices are also very good.

“Good location”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food was good and the service was very good. It is just your average Mexican Resturant. I was able to walk to this location from my hotel across the street. The prices are the same for most Mexican Resturants.
