Love the variety of meats to go along with the variety of ways to eat them...tacos, burritos, salads. Breakfast, lunch, dinner...really good!

We got a vegetarian burrito and a bacon breakfast taco. Everything was perfectly cooked and tasted great. We liked both the red and green salsas. They also have great chips and salsa here. It can be busy sometimes, but not too busy especially if you want to dine in. Try this place.

If you're not from Texas, chances are you know what real Mexican food tastes like - it this TexMex BBQ with liquid smoke added to the beans - but real Mexican food - from California (Ha!). In all seriousness, this is the best Mexican food restaurant in North Texas. Excellent breakfast burritos with chorizo, ham or bacon - they're a... More

My family is from California - been in Texas for about 12 years now, and while we've come to appreciate (dare I say enjoy) TexMex, however there is something about more traditional (to us) Mexican fare that we love, and El Grande Burrito fits the bill. If you're traveling (or just moved here) from California and you haven't got the... More

We had our Christmas Eve breakfast here this morning. If you want a good, authentic Tex-mex breakfast, look no farther than El Grande Burrito. It never disappoints.

I am a frequent visitor to El Grande but this is first review. EG is a small little diner in a small shopping strip. I have experienced breakfast and lunch on numerous occasions. This is about authentic as you can get in Allen. The burritos are huge and very tasty. All the meats are well prepared and usually have a... More

If you are in the Allen area for lunch/breakfast and are craving Mexican food, then look no farther. I have tried many things on their menu and you absolutely cannot go wrong with any of their breakfast items. My personal favorite is the chorizo and egg breakfast burrito. For lunch, I generally go with a chimichanga with discada, pork and... More

We eat breakfast lunch and dinner! Everything is fantastic! Veggie breakfast tacos to tortilla soup, I've never had a bad meal. They may be a little slow but that's because they cook to order. Go to this place you won't regret it!

Everything we have had there is good. This is a regular stop for us during lunch. Friday is "Fish Taco" day and they serve a great plate of food for less than $8 including drink.
