Reviews for El Burro Picante

Great food great prices fills you up, fresh salsa bomb steak. Recently added these spicy chicken sandwiches I'm addicted to with slaw that I always eat with an horchata. Great ownership and super quick service. Literally no complaints other than wishing they'd be open more hours. Other Berkeley restaurants need to take note this is how to do it.

Leaving you guys a review here because I dreamed about your California burrito last night. There's some places that have specific food items that I will go out of my way to eat and el burro Picante's California burrito is one of them. I remember it was freshman year of college when I first tried a California burrito from this very place due to a restaurant.com coupon and basically just fell in love. Now I'm in Florida, thousands of miles away and still thinking about winter break...read full review

Great customer service and even better food. On Thursday and Friday night they have a pop up featuring a Spicy Fried Chicken sandwich. It packs a spicy kick but its a moist, tender, and, flavorful sandwich that keeps me coming back every Friday!!! They also have a great Mexican menu, I love the wet burritos, taco salads, and tacos. You will not regret stopping in for a reasonably priced and tasty meal.
