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.

I personally don't know because I don't eat Mexican food like that in restaurants. I went with friends and they said it was ok.

The vegan taco was so great. Friendly waitstaff and the food was delivered quickly. Some of the best chips and salsa I have had. Very easy to over eat!

Good food for a good price! We went on Taco Tuesday and enjoyed $3 tacos. They were a really good size and they were delicious! Service was okay. We did not have to wait long and got our food quicky!

Visiting from West Coast and found the margarita excellent; I told the server that I like a little Orange juices in my margarita but I'd take the house special and she put Orange juice in for me; real service!  The Chili relleno was among the best I've ever had.  Just the right amount of egg batter and it was a little crispy, which I ... read more

All around a decent stop
Definitely acceptable food and presentation but not especially memorable. When in Burlington and in the mood for Mexican this is our place. Outside seating a plus. Decent drinks.

Our go to place for Mexican food in Burlington. For the value, they give you great drinks, free chips and salsa, and outstanding main dishes. We've been many times and always enjoy coming back!

The food was just ok, not great, but the worst part was that it was very over priced. The service was not great, we waited a loooooong time for our bills and then again to pay our bills ... read more

I came here for a quick bite with some friends.  The atmosphere is nice, and the staff is friendly.  Even though we came during dinner time on a Saturday, it did not feel crowded or quiet, just the right balance.  The waitress was quick to serve us and bring our food, including the chips at the beginning.  I had the taco platter with ... read more

Amazing and I'm from Texas so I know Mexican food. But let the warn you that the other location taste NOTHING like this one. The other ones food is trash.
Zane Houk via - Jul 10, 2019
Food was salted too generously. The kitchen crew played music that unfortunately competing with the music playing overhead. The seating by the beautiful window seemed to lack air conditioning so I asked to sit further back in the restaurant. We were then seated by the door the employees use to step out to smoke, which was left ajar ... read more

El Gato Cantina is a pretty decent Mexican restaurant on Church Street in downtown Burlington, Vermont. They serve tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. any how you want. Most of the food are spicy, but do have mild sauces at your request. They do serve both, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Their tap system has some decent local b ... read more

My friend and I went to El Gato after eating dinner for their own drinks. They have a very extensive margarita menu and I highly suggest trying one of their unique margs. The bartender was very friendly as well!
