Was a nice place to eat. Server was mostly on her phone and was preoccupied so we did not even get drink menus. The guy who served us was very nice and friendly and was doing hos best to pick up the slack of the girl sitting people as she would go between having friends come in and chatting to phone. The food was really good and ther ... read more

My husband, our 5 year old and I had dinner last night, Sat Jan 15th. Our first time here. it was incredible! The bartender made our little guy a kid-a-rita and he was so excited! We ordered a few of the sides as Appetizers and they were delicious. Fish and shrimp taco platter for my dinner, was insanely good!!!! Black beans were co ... read more

Okay - it was okay. Not horrible but definitely not good. I can’t understand why this place was busy… Rice was dry and had no flavor; Beans - straight out of the can. No salsas or garnish sauces with burrito or enchiladas. The waitress was nice - but seemed to be confused when I asked if there was any hot sauces or salsa. Way too exp ... read more

Great drinks, great music, great staff. What can I say? This is the best Mexican bar in Burlington. The line was really long because it is so popular. It took us a while to get our drinks of course, but it was worth it. The staff gave us water and an appetizer while we waited. Normally I would leave but it was worth the wait. These b ... read more

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

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!
