This burrito was delicious and was not what I expected. When I got it, it was in a to-go box and when I opened it up, the burrito was served with a coating of green sauce and cheese *on top of the burrito* with more re-fried beans and dirty rice on the side. The sour cream was also served on the side of the burrito in a plastic conta ... read more

Delicious take out this week.  Entrance in Essex Junction could use a little attention.  Rather disgusting both outside and inside main entrance.

Their food was really good , but the service felt rushed and that's okay given the recent reopen procedures for the summer . Their bar taps also weren't functioning so I only had two beers to choose . We will go again later this year and try again ... read more

Visiting from out of state during the pandemic and they were EXCELLENT. Tons of cleaning, wearing masks, everything sanitized. Quick service and great food. I got the quesadilla and strawberry margarita and couldn't be more pleased for my first dining out experience since February.

Great mexican treat!
My best friend and I were looking for some good mexican food, and we came to El Gato Cantina. Oh wow, the menu was great! But since it was for afternoon snack, we opted to get their Nachos Grand and Taco Platter, which we shared,...More ... read more

The food is the the best mexican in this area. The staff is very friendly and nice. The margaritas are good size and pretty tasty. I highly recommend the Barbacoa Tacos. Add cheese!

Food was actually fairly decent, however, I'm pretty sure I got food poisoning from the Steak/Shrimp fajitas. No way to tell for certain but that seems to be the only common denominator, as I was fine around 7pm when we picked up our food, and within an hour of consumption I was violently ill.

Staff is awesome. Food is the best Mexican in the area. The house made salsa is the best. You can take that to the bank, because I make my own salsa and it's the best too! Photos coming soon.

Good Mexican Food on Church Street
Enjoyed our meal at El Gato with our grandkids. Everyone's food was good. We tried the braised tongue taco which was very tender, loaded with meat and delicious. The fish tacos were also good with a nice fillet of tilapia and good sauce. Kids liked...More ... read more

We’ve eaten here often before going to the theatre. Their chips & salsa served before you order are homemade. Margarita’s are a must & tacos excellent. Our most recent experience was a takeout due to Coronavirus. It was brought to our car & although we...More ... read more

Finally, good authentic Mexican food that isn't trying to be pretentious. Worth the trip across the lake.

We had a great, quick weekday dinner ! The food was very good( shrimp tacos, carne asada tacos and beef quesadillas) and the house margaritas were excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and quick- I think his name was Jason. Very cute, low key vibe.

I wanted to try the local flare and stumbled upon El Gato. Cute place in a neat part of town ... tacos were very good and I REALLY enjoyed the house made hot sauce!!

I know people that really like this place, but frankly I think it's overrated. Pricey for what it is, staff aren't the politest or friendliest, the menu really isn't that big. I think the nastiest thing I ever saw there was outside the building someone going out back with an extremely dirty blue bucket and coming back with a bucket o ... read more

We loved going here over the years.The food has been consistently  on point. Always pleasing to our multi generational crew. But the place could use a breath of new life . As Ive said food good atmosphere  not so much. The old cat needs to be spruced up. When dinning out we all want the environment to be equally  pleasing.

Just ok. I would read the menu really carefully as I ordered the pork enchiladas with a side of black beans which ended having the beans inside the enchilada (which changed the flavor) and it also had mushrooms which was not described in the menu. My partner ordered the chimichanga with beef and the rice was absolutely gross, tasted ... read more

Great Mexican food at good prices in a fun environment. Good selection of beer, wine and margaritas. Great place for the whole family.

You cam get a mixed variety of three choices for around $15.00 but unfortunately they we all pretty bland. Our bartender/ server "Sterling" was attentive, but two beers a shot of tequila and dinner ran to $40 plus per person. But it was not busy and a place to eat.
