El Gato is one of my favorite places in Burlington. The food is pretty decent at a fair price. But what makes this place pop is their selection of pretty bomb tequila. The well tequila is pretty good too for being well. On Wednesday they have half off margs which is pretty dope and it gets real busy for a good reason so get here earl ... read more

Great food and value
We've gone here the last five years after the marathon and are always satisfied with the tasty food and selection of drinks. It is a great value and a relaxing atmosphere. The service is inconsistent, but it has always been resolved when we've asked.

Eh?
Around the corner from the Floyd Theater, this Mexican restaurant is, in my opinion, just so-so. Drinks were good. Chips were served, but they forgot the salsa...which we had to ask for. Not bad. It took a long time for the food to be served....More ... read more

Only had beer, chips and salsa, but that was good and reasonably priced. Good service and atmosphere.

Best margaritas around, great beef tounge tacos, carnitas, and easily the biggest tequila selection I’ve seen in the state in a restaurant or bar. Awesome place to gather with friends.

This is THE place to go if you're in the mood for a delicious burrito, tasty tacos, or a much needed margarita! Friendly atmosphere, great service, and very reasonable pricing. Can't wait to come back!

Best Margs probably in the state. Great authentic cuisine!!! Lengua tacos are the best I’ve had north of the border. Great place to bring friends and enjoy a meal with a great atmosphere.

Dope food with even better Margaritas!! I went on a Wednesday night and the wait for a table was about 30 minutes but it was well worth the wait as you can enjoy the superb margaritas while waiting!

The bar tender at night is awesome and works her but off, the food is good and well portioned plates. They do have a decent drink list also.

Authentic Mexican lunch... free chips and salsa!
We loved our experience... service was friendly and efficient. The free basket of chips and salsa were a nice treat. Very much enjoyed the feel of this quaint-feeling (yet spacious) restaurant. The food was flavourful, hot and yummy — do not settle for a chain...More ... read more

Essex Jct. location. I want to first start by saying that the food is delicious each and every time I have eaten in house. However, ordering takeout is not something I will ever do again. I have ordered on 3 separate occasions and each time it has become increasingly worse than the last, which was tonight. After placing my order at ... read more

Even on a night that had only one wait staff working they were able to stay on top of things. The food was good, the drinks were great, It might've taken longer than I would've liked but as I said only one waiter was there. I still had a great night, I had a great meal, and I had a great night. What more do you want? ... read more

THE best Mexican restaurant in Vermont and beyond!

I've had good times here, and I've had bad times here. The food is good but the service is subpar. Tonight my friend ordered off of the "$10 menu" only to find that they no longer honor the $10 menu when brought her check. She ended up paying full price, despite arguing that it was advertised as $10.
