Went with friends to this restaurant for lunch. Did not disappoint. Maybe the very best Chile Colorado I have EVER had. Portions were huge. Wife had green chile verde enchiladas which she also loved. Very nice staff willing to make adjustments to menu items as requested. Definitely going back next time we are in San Jose.

We love this restaurant! I have been coming here for 20+ years! We have ordered almost everything on the menu, but our favorites are the El Amigo Burritos, camerones rancheros, taco salads, carne asada burritos, and guacamole. The strawberry margaritas are the best! They are made with wine, and everyone we go there with loves them as well! The employees... More

Our family found this little mall restaurant after it won the award for the best burritto in Santa Clara years ago, We love the fresh food, classic mexican, but their service is the best because it is family run. Drop in, as you are, and come out stuffed! Love the shrimp dishes, chimichangas, enchiladas, and burritos.

This place does the standard Mexican food. It does it pretty well too. I am a fan of their enchiladas, but my wife does like the burritos. This is our go to place for simple Mexican food. The prices are reasonable.

Had dinner with friends before a football game at SJ CC. There was plenty of parking and it is a very small restaurant. Nice decor with added decorations for Christmas. We were seated almost immediately even with the restaurant nearly full. Our server took a while to take our order but we were pleased to promptly get our drinks. The... More

We loved the fast home style burritos. We enjoyed the non stop filing ice tea. Did not wait to be served. Good place to eat for a reasonable price.

Haven't been to El Amigo Burrito for a while. Went last night with some friends. The dinner was amazing. Tried something different and each bite was delicious. The service was spot on - very friendly but not intrusive. Each of us enjoyed our meal and left with full tummies and a bit of leftover for today's lunch! Won't wait so... More
