There fresh margaritas were so good but the food was average. Rice was soggy and they don’t serve peppers and onions with there fajitas!!! We were disappointed with our experience and average food quality.

Our family loves stopping by Welches on our many trips to the mountain for hiking or skiing. One of our favorite restaurants is El Burro Loco. It's definitely family style "Tex-Mex," but is still very good quality! We ordered our lunch to go and enjoyed...a few to-go margaritas in the Timberline parking lot before heading up for night skiing. Perfect!More

My favorite anywhere. Great smoked meats, wonderful twist to standard dishes. Love the seasonal margaritas. Fantastic service. Indoor and outdoor sitting.

Staying for a week in the area and went here to get an order to go. Ordered the large veggie nachos and it was two containers plus more chips. Three of us ate on it and I got another meal the next day. Went back...a few days later and ate in the restaurant and the nacho size grew! Also the veggie flautas was very good.More

A pleasant surprise for a Texan far from home. The food is good, service fast and friendly, and costs are reasonable.

I never tried this place before, Googled it and saw all the reviews. Gave it a chance, BIG mistake. The staff was nice, but there were more flies in there then people. I tried to over look it but the food was nasty. it was...cold and had no flavor what so ever. I am very disappointed and would hope that they would work on the taste a little more.More

There were 8 in our group, were seated right away, very friendly staff. We have been wanting to try and could not believe how great the food was and how much food was given. Was so fresh and quick serve! Will definitely be returning!

The vegetarian nachos here are absolutely the best. The small size is enough to feed two people. Don't order the large unless you have a big group!
