“A Place for Friends”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Since El Burrito Loco opened several years ago, it has been, by far, one of the most frequented restaurants by my group of friends in Oxford. There is off street parking, the menu is bountiful, the wait staff will make you feel very welcome, and the large, cafeteria style tables can be constructed into "super-tables" for big, obnoxious groups like my friends. If you're looking for a quiet, Mexican dinner, though, be sure to avoid Margarita night. This place gets "Loco".

“Why go to El Burrito Loco? Parking and margaritas”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

There are two real sit-down options for Mexican food in Oxford: Fiesta Charra and El Burrito Loco. Fiesta Charra has (by far) the better food. However, parking is difficult on High Street (Fiesta Charra's location), whereas El Burrito Loco has its own lot. And El Burrito Loco turns out some of the best margaritas you will ever taste!

Unfortunately, El Burrito Loco also turns out some of the worst Mexican food my family has ever tried to eat. After a few disappointing trips, we finally just gave up. In my opinion, the nearby Taco Bell actually turns out better Mexican dishes.

But try a margarita...

“Cheap Mexican fare. Great Margaritas.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Cheap Mexican fare. Great Margaritas. Atmosphere ranges from dead empty to packed and ready to party. Small parking area.

“Best burrito's”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Stop in on Locust Street in Oxford Ohio for some really burritos; you can carry out salsa and chips...The waiters are wonderful...Many good mexican dishes....The parking is limited; but the food is wonderful; so try and get an early lunch or dinner.....The strawberry dacquaris are really good....If you are regular like myself; they will know exactly what you order when you come in......

“Great Marg's!”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

Haven't eaten here yet...but the margarita was outstanding!

Not just lime bar mix and tequila...but it had a rich flavor that was delicious. It is apparently the house marg, but I ordered it with gold tequila and that's it. Out came this wonderful marg that was full of flavor, smooth and delicious. They must "doctor up" a lime mix that makes the flavor better.

The waiters working were very attentive and glad to serve the two of us, even though we just stopped in for a drink about 8pm. Brought out the chips and salsa too.

Nice job guys!
