El Burro Borracho, which opened March 4 in the Rio, 3700 W. Flamingo Road, is from Food Network star (and UNLV grad) Guy Fieri.
Fieri’s second Las Vegas restaurant, El Burro Borracho — which translates to “the drunken donkey” — offers a diverse menu of Mexican-style favorites (and, of course, burgers, a Fieri specialty) and an extensive cocktail program that includes tequila flights, “brain freezes” such as the Frozen Horchata Colada, margaritas and more.
The decor is eclectic and includes art in the style of Fieri’s tattoos. Here’s a sample of the menu:
