El Burrito

My last visit to El Burrito was ok, not great but just ok. So the Wife and a friend that was with me on the last visit, and I went back to El Burrito to give it another try.

The chips and salsa arrive at the table immediately and I was happy as I remembered them being quite good. Normally I don’t like to complain about a freebee like chips and salsa but these weren’t good. The chips were stale and the salsa was bland and had the consistency of koolaid. It felt like they were running low and simply added water to it like when the Wife adds water to the bottle of dish soap and shakes it up. Makes it last longer fo sho. (Wife sings in the background “In the ghettooooo”)

Well I ordered the carna asada with some flour tortillas which are supposed to come with the meal, they never came. The steak was ok. The sides all lacked any sort of flavor. Everyone at the table had the same sentiment, it was just blah. The wife received her tortillas and when I asked about mine I was told that they were all in the same container. There were only three tortillas in the case and since she got the fajitas, it makes sense there were three for her. Lame. She was cool enough to give me one though.


It wasn’t the best experience I’ve had and it will be difficult to get my friends to give them another try. I’m not sure if it was just an off day or not but it will be a while before I feel the urge to make a return visit.

Down with Mexican restaurants that are stingy with tortillas! I mean, c’mon, if you give me the filling, give me something to stick it into.
