This looks like any Californian/Mexican - or anywhere/Mexican restaurant - from the 1990's, and the food brings back memories of Mexican comfort food at its best. The decor is dark and retro, there are lots of different rooms and spaces, but the food is what draws folks. It's not haute cuisine - it's basic Mexican food, done well and offered in generous portions. The menu is extensive, and Mario's sauces distinguish their various meat offerings. I had a baked beef offering, and I have to say it's hard to achieve a medium-rare fall-apart beef when it's baked in sauces and tortillas, but El Burro did it. I love their hot salsa as well, and they make a great house margarita. This is my second visit; as with my first, I could even finish my entree, but enjoyed every bite.
