Average Mexican food. Average service. Average decor and cleanliness. Nothing really struck me about this place. It passed everything with about an 80%. Nothing really wrong either, just nothing worth telling people to go out of their way for.

El Gato is fantastic! Great service, great food, and even better margaritas- 10/10 a Burlington staple.

Being greeted with a friendly hostess to the server at the table taking beverage orders in less then ten minutes was unreal and the place was full of people. We had six in our party and all six people absolutely loved the meals. Zero complaints and I love that we have an option to go to the Essex location or the downtown location. Th ... read more

I think El Gato has the most authentic Mexican food in Vermont. Love the chips & salsa, margarita’s & all the food. Nice friendly staff and it has a great vibe!

I was so happy to eat at El Gato again. I love all the special's especially the food specials. My husband always has El gato's delicious Chimichanga!

Ok hear me out - the food and margs here are average! But we're in Burlington, VT and there aren't any authentic Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurants in the area. I've been here several times, the service is consistent, the salsa/queso, margs (on the rocks not frozen) are decent as well as the main entrees. I'm from Texas and live in VT part ... read more

This is one of my favorite places to order from. They have really yummy food, and their margaritas are the best I've had. I ordered out from here multiple times when places were closed during the pandemic. I would love to go and eat there in person, once there are less worries about COVID. It would be a good date night place to try.

Pretty empty for being a Saturday night, we were seated immediately. The chips and salsa that were given right as we sat were very good. I got the chicken quesadilla, it tasted better than I thought. It looked pretty bland, but after tasting it, the chicken had a lot of flavor and the onions and peppers also helped. I would say that ... read more

BVT location. Food was tasty but not quite as good as I'd hoped. Carne Asada was tough and not as flavorful. Enchilada fell a little short. The Toastada, however, was spot on and the Tamale was very good. My Margarita was perfect but a bit pricey. A minor detail was that they put us at a small, high table and delivered several p ... read more

Stopped in here after liking the look of their menu a bit more than the other Mexican joint in Burlington. It's a bit of a dive joint but seemed like a good place for some cheap tacos etc. Place was pretty empty though it was a Tuesday. We sat near the bar. Nice touch that you get free chips and salsa when sitting down. I ordered the ... 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

Fabulous! Delicious! Attentive! Our party of five had a marvelous time at El Gato.

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
