Located in the burgeoning Lamar Union complex in South Austin — the go-to neighborhood for indulging in the city’s tastiest Mexican fare and frosty margaritas — El Burro features a menu of authentic and Texas-centric ingredients. Highlights include cold dishes like Tostada de Ceviche, and the Red Snapper Crudo y Agua Chili, as well as a variety of Street Cart Tacos, Chicken Tinga Enchiladas and El Burro’s take on fajitas, with bacon-wrapped shrimp, lobster tail, chicken breast and thigh, flank steak or rib eye. The El Burro space is warm and welcoming, and boasts an expansive open-air patio ideal for kicking back with friends while sipping fresh-made margaritas and chowing down on El Burro’s Austin-tatious Mexican specialties.
