    Ate at this restaurant a few days ago with two other people. Food was very good but the service was poor. Waited at the bar for my party and the bartender never said hello or smiled. To add insult. Our waiter was just as cold as the bartender. No smiles, or even a kind gesture. Will not eat there ever again or recommend the place..

    Worst mexican i have ever had in my entire life. I ordered the Camarones Costenos-Sauteed gulf shrimp marinated in coastefilo chile adobo, served with ploantains, Mexican rice, and julienne tortillas...it was basically shrimp in marinara sauce. My friends also were displeased with their dishes. Their margaritas have little to no alcohol in them as well. Dont waste your time!!!

    My boyfriend took me to Burrito Loco for my birthday. It wasn't our first time going there. I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't crowded since it was a Friday nite. I had the carne tampiquena. It was delicious! He had a pork chop special. That was yummy also. The only negative I can say was that the drinks were very light on the alcohol. Other than that, everything was perfect. Thanks for an awesome birthday dinner!!

    I really like this restaurant. Service is really good. Ambience is nice too. Pretty affordable as well. I went once and they has amazing Mexican music blasting which I loved but for the second I went they turned it down a notch and had low music playing. I really wish they had the loud festive music on. It created a great fun mood

    Food is overpriced for what you get, even though it still tastes good. The space inside the restaurant is a bit small as well so large groups would have a problem.

    Great Service. Staff is super attentive. Loved the margaritas. If you return a drink for being horrible they will still charge you.. Don't be the monkey! Food was good but definitely not worth the price. I make homemade Mexican food from scratch the way my a heal taught me and this food is good but not authentic. I will go back for margaritas only.

    Went with a group of 13 people the night before cinco de mayo. Service was good - managed the big group well. Food was not particularly distinctive, but we were mostly there to drink margaritas and have fun. Frozen margaritas were potent and delicious! Fairly reasonably priced as well. Would recommend for a group looking to have a fun dinner.

    I took my BFF here for her birthday. It was our first time here. We both enjoyed our food & drinks. The prices were reasonable. It's pretty loud, but after a drink or 2, you won't even notice. Plus it was a Friday night. We will definitely go back.

    Me and my girlfriend decided to grab a quick meal before heading to 3 sheets. We stopped by Burrito loco because I was craving Mexican. We decided to get the Choriqueso as an appetizer. For an entree she got the Enchiladas Burrito Loco and I got the Chimichangas. The Choriqueso came out pretty quickly and we enjoyed the warm tortilla that came with it. The sausage was salty but still had some good flavor. When my girlfriend started to eat her enchiladas burrito loco, stuffed with beef, she immediately longed for the version she had weeks ago at tortillas grill on second ave. Add to that my soggy Chimichangas and flavorless rice and beans, we quickly paid our bill and grabbed a dollar slice to fill our stomachs. I will not be coming back.

    Great for birthdays - they turn on really loud mexican music and come by with a bottle of jose cuervo and a large sombrero for the birthday guest with a plate of flan with a candle and pour a shot in their mouth - really a lot of fun for a group and they were very accomodating - really fun for a cheesy birthday celebration!

    The staff was very accommodating to our large, mostly late, group. They were good about checking in and making sure everyone hads drinks. My 2 problems were the mediocre food and loud atmosphere. Very difficult to hear friends siting right next to me.

    Based on the name, you wouldn't think twice about this cute restaurant on West 4th and Cornelia but you should! We ate there on a Friday night and it was lively and busy from 6:30 til we left at 11. Great variety of margies and plenty of different beers. Homemade guac was delicious (although it could have been a more generous size), empanadas were a great blend of spicy, smoky meat and flaky pastry dough. The grilled chicken burrito was fresh and filled with great ingredients...plenty of grilled chicken, black beans, rice, etc. So good! My husband had a steak topped with chorizo and ate every single bite so I have to trust him when he told me it was really good :) Two others had the vegetable burritos and really liked them too.

    We reserved here because we were down in the neighborhood and wanted to eat Mexican food--but did not know anything about the restaurant. It was affordable and wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It might possibly be a different experience if the place were full (perhaps it would be much more noisy). But, it was very quiet the night we were there and the service was excellent.
