This is hands down the best Mexican food that I have ever had! I highly recommend everything we ordered for sure. My house Margaritas was delicious, but they have a two page menu for Margaritas! The staff was friendly too. I highly recommend this place!

impossible to get ahold of on phone or via website. phone goes unanswered and no opp to leave a v/m, web says "too busy right now, back in a it" ... even though the restaurant is CLOSED! 'new' hours not posted anywhere except on the front doot (necessitating a drive into town to learn). food is very good, table service very good ...

Very nice cantina, prices aren't bad, staff are friendly. Make sure if you want a combo of three enchiladas, say combo of three enchiladas. I just said three enchiladas and got screwed pricewise.

Fabulous! Delicious! Attentive! Our party of five had a marvelous time at El Gato. We went to taste tequila, and ended up not only tasting multiple tequilas and learning a great deal from owner Tree Bertram Sanchez, but also sampled many of El Gato’s authentic signature dishes, experienced Tree’s endearing hospitality, and are pla ... read more

Had a girls night out while visiting town. You get chips and salsa to snack on when you first get there and the waiter was quick to get us waters, and take our order when we were ready and kept checkin in on us to make sure we were satisfied and to see if we needed anything. My chicken quesadilla was HUGE with chicken, cheese, pepper ... read more

Looked trendy and was on a 25min wait. Was ready for some legit Mexican food. It was OK and definitely too pricey for OK. Had a beef burrito and a taco. The beef used was stew beef. Would recommend the chef to check out Old Town San Diego and Miguel's cocina on Coronado to see how far fresh ingredients can go. Wait staff was so ... read more

Good real Mexican food!

Excellent food, bit pricey for Mexican. Good front staff, kitchen struggling to keep up with demand, emerging from CoVid, because understaffed. Great salsa and guac, worth the wait and expense.

Great food and great service. Waiters were happy to help, and the wait wasn't too long. Even in Covid times, this place was great! Will definitely come back many more times.

The water was very nice but ther was a vere long wait and they messed up my order. I have celiac and I asked for a corn tortia they gave me a flower tortia. They did aplogize and they got me a gluten free tortia fast. If you are alergic to anything be carfull but still yummy.

It's actually kinda unreasonable how good the food is. Their shrimp special was so good. Spicy crema, fresh veggies and fried shrimp. Fantastic. Their carnitas are also awesome. The wait staff are also really nice and super accommodating. I go like once a week. Can't recommend enough.

Visited last week and enjoyed most of our meals, ie wings which were awesome and the chips/salsa! However, I dont know if it was an off day or not but the tacos were very dry and inedible. With that said, because we were unable to eat the tacos they took them off the bill for us which I appreciated very much and the reason we are ret ... read more

The tongue (lengua) tacos are good, and their selection of tequila is perhaps the best in town!

Love the atmosphere and the chimichanga.

Loved El Gato. I must say this restaurant was better than we expected. We were served salsa and chips when we sat down. We had exceptional margaritas followed by a big bowl of soup de Pollo full of shredded chicken. It was 17 degrees out and we were cold. We were full, but managed 2 tacos, shrimp and grilled fish, very good. Next ti ... read more

The food is very very good. The only knock I had is they ran behind on reservations. We had a 745 reservation and weren't seated until 815. It was valentine's weekend and they were slammed, so it's understandable. The margaritas were ok, but the food made up for it!

Don't go unless you want covid. Servers and bartenders didn't were masks. Also patrons were coughing.

My experience here was awesome! The staff was so helpful and nice! The service from the bartender I had in particular (I believe her name was Hunter) was so above and beyond! She is so fun and awesome! She was super helpful finding me and all my friends drinks and had awesome customer service! Definitely coming back again ASAP!

El Gato is easily the best restaurant in Burlington! I got the chicken quesadilla and my husband got the deep fried chimichanga burrito and both were EXQUISITE!! I highly recommend the bar as well; our server Tommy was very knowledgeable about tequila, and we were treated by a visit from manager Faith, who ensured our visit was the b ... read more

We ordered delivery and it came pretty quickly. The food was okay but not amazing. I was unpleasantly surprised by the raw jalapeno slices rather than pickled. I was also surprised that the chimichanga was 100% meat inside with an almost queso type cheese topping. On the plus side the chicken (which I also got on the nachos) was real ... read more

Familiar mexican comfort food dishes. Tasty. Love the mole.
Barbara H via google.com - Nov 14, 2020
Great service, table already set with chips, salsa and a drink when we got there and the food was quick to come out. Margaritas were tasty and only 5.50 on Wednesday! The only thing they can work on is the quality of the meat fillings, they tend to be a bit sub-par.
