We were well taken care of by Misael. There were 5 of us and all of our orders were perfect, the food was excellent, and the coffees were great. No one was disappointed and the portions are extremely generous.

Everyone knows El Burro, and just about everyone in the San Jose area has eaten there. It has a great outdoor area and a vast indoor area. It is quite popular, the food is good and the prices are good, as well. There are times...More

I went there last night with friends. The pros - large servings of food at a decent price with fast service even when full. The chefs seemingly love cheese cuz you get about a pound with every dish. The cons - loud, everything is sauced,...More

The restaurant still has the 70's vibe. The food is a bit Americanized Mexican food, but still very good. All 3 of us enjoyed our lunch. The portions were not huge, but just the right size.
