Burro is a lively taco joint that is just as much about fun as it is food. This great hangout is open from lunch until late at night, meaning it can be a great place for an afternoon snack, a spot to do some late-night dining and everything in between. Burro is just as proud of its drink menu as it is of its food. There is a long list of custom craft cocktails that showcase the creativity of Burro's bartenders.

Burro's menu revolves around the humble taco. The best thing about this dish is that it's so adaptable. Some of the tacos guess will find here include a classic fish, spicy Brussels sprout, charred broccoli & Summer corn, achiote chicken, jerk pork and spicy beef cheek. The other side of the menu is a section simply labeled "not tacos" that has entrées like whitefish ceviche and ahi tuna tostadas.

We sat on the patio which was very lovely. It felt private and was quiet. It was raining (which I know the restaurant has no control over) and our table was getting a little bit wet. Food was amazing!! Definitely will be returning

I would reduce the lighting a bit inside and on the patio, for ambience's sake! Otherwise it was excellent in every department.

Our first date night in many, many months. We sat outside on the side patio and basically had it all to ourselves. The staff was very friendly and accommodating (helping us find a place to put our bikes and sat us so we could keep an eye on them). The food was outstanding (as usual). If you’re looking for tacos in Burlington, this is your place.

Great food and the server was lovely. The catch is that the food service was too efficient. I felt rushed. The tacos were on our table before we could enjoy the guacamole and chips. Plates were taken away before I finished the chips. Small things but just felt like we were pushed out. Were there less than an hour.

The sat outside in the deck area/ The hornets were often going after our food or drinks. The food had very small portions and was expensive. The guac was nice. The server was on top of things.

Loved it! A staple in DT Burlington.

I love their original and fish tacos. My boyfriend had their Chicken tacos and ate them without giving me a bite so safe to say it was delicious.

I took a chance and got their foldies (on the appetizer page) and it was delicious. Will definitely order these in the future and reminded me of birria tacos - don’t skip out on these.

Drinks wise, their spicy margaritas were good (you’ll just have to ask for them) and I got a Paloma which was okay. will definitely be coming back.

Meal was amazing as usual but when I still had half my drink left and a taco to eat they told me they needed the table for the next reservation. I completely understand with covid the rules are different, but wish I was told before ordering another drink and extra taco that the timing would be tight.……awesome place and good service but too bad it ended on a bad note.

The food was quick, hot, and delicious. It is always presented beautifully.

I know you were busy but as someone who works in the restaurant industry, there is something unappealing about dirty tables left with used plates and bar ware from the previous customers.

I ordered two Tacos and they only brought one. By the time I finished the first I wish I hadn't ordered the second. It was very greasy, I told my husband we wouldn't be returning. They turned clients away because they were booked. But by the time we left there were empty tables and they weren't very quick in clearing them. We won't be returning.

Was a busy weekend. But out of corona and cilantro! Big things for Mexican taco place.

Also out of a taco and a couple of starters

Portions were small. We left still hungry. We had a starter salad and 3 tacos.

Service was excellent. But waited a long time for food.

Food was tasty when we got it though.

The crew was short staffed and had a computer glitch which over booked tables. They eventually were able to accommodate us and took care of our apps and a round of drinks. Well done burro, the food was amazing we’ll definitely be back!

All the taco's listed on the menu pack punch in flavor and with a pleasant texture. If you go to Burro, you kinda got to go all out and try a variety of thing's. My go to is the prok belly nacho which never disappoints! The sweet potato taco, as it has the perfect light crunch with mouth watering tastey toppings.
