I have an EIGRP Routers in Full Mesh as shown below. I would like to know what is the down side about having Full Mesh. For instance:
 if it can create a Loop
if one router or interface Fails, how to prevent unnecessary queries to fly around the whole network
And probably more issues can stem out of the Full Mesh

Any EE insights on this ?

Thank you

You won't cause loops if an interface fails. That is one of the major reasons to use any type of dynamic routing protocol such as EIGRP or OSPF.
The only way to reduce queries is to configure routers as EIGRP stub, but that all depends on how the rest of the network is configured.
The only potential downfalls I see to full mesh is cost, and engineering routing to make sure traffic doesn't use inefficient paths (mostly during failures or ecmp routing)
