About us:

Manuel's El Burrito Restaurant has been serving the FINEST IN AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD in the North Davis Area for many years. Started by Manuel Gallegos, Sr. in 1976, we are still family owned and operated. It's amazing how we've grown since 1976. Manuel's El Burrito is now a new 3,800 square-foot buckskin-colored Spanish-style adobe with a dining patio and sports bar cantina, and our new seating capacity has grown to 175 customers.

In our first restaurant we recall pouring bottled pop into paper cups and our family cooked everything out of home Crock-Pots. We use only authentic Mexican recipes shared by George Garcia, also known as, "Uncle George", who Manuel Sr. entered into business with, only to buy him out. We started out small, and just kept getting bigger. The reason Manuel's El Burrito has succeeded is because we serve quality Mexican food and it is always consistent. Our customers have come to expect the fine food that we serve, which is always great.

Our Menu has the variety that one would expect of the seasoned Mexican restaurant owners. Everything from the most delicious Chile Verde in the west to Sizzling Fajitas and our succulent Mexican Steak, our desserts are nothing to skip either!

Visit the rest of our site and look at our menu, call in an order, or make us your next Mexican dining experience, bring your family, or come with all of your friends for a great dining experience!

I have found Manuel's to b my favorite Mexican dining place in salt lake and Davis county. Their food is authentic and fresh everytime. The staff is professional and quick to serve u. They r all so friendly and always with a smile. It almost feels like family. The Chile Verde is to die for as well as their sweet pork 2 of my favorites. Everyone should frequent this place.

I frequently visit El Burrito's for lunch with my friends. They have the best chili verde I have ever ate. I enjoy going there for the food and friendly service. The waiters are quick to take your order and very friendly. Its the only place I go to eat Mexican food. Menu price is comparable to other restraurants in the area. And once in a while they bring out the spinning wheel to win dinners, drinks, desserts, etc. Keep up the good work.

MichMac MANUEL'S EL BURRITO RESTAURANT & CANTINA | Layton Clearfield Mexican Restaurant Catering Buffet

The redeeming grace about this restaurant was the waitress we had. She was attentive and funny. This place is about as Mexican as Taco Bell. There are American food items like burgers on the menu which I found kind of odd. The dishes are huge but they are flavorless. We had to keep dumping their tomato paste salsa on top of everything for flavor. Price wasn't all that great either, but not terrible.

Thanks MichMac for you review, I found it to be interesting. I guess you ordered the wrong items for your taste. We do have amazing burgers and taco meat (ground beef) on our menu for people who might not want spicy. But we also have Delicious Carne Asada Tacos, Succulent Carnitas, Homemade Menudo (Does Taco Bell Serve Meudo?) and the Very Best Chile Verde you will ever find. Our Salsa, by the way is not made of tomato paste, and is only made with finest ingredients daily. My family and I are Mexican-American born and raise in the USA for over 4 generations and we are Mexicans who cook Carefully Prepared Mexican Food. Manuel Gallegos Jr
