Burro bar is in the former Ribelle space and they have not improved the acoustics. The noice level is really bad and you can barely hear a thing. They will not seat you unless your entire party is there, kind of annoying. Menu looks great...More

Fun interior and a bonus patio during nicer weather. I ordered carnitas tacos that had finely diced apples in it - very different but was very, very tasty! Good cocktails as well to go along with the menu, including non-tequila options.
