The Painted Burro is Davis Square’s modern-day Mexican kitchen and tequila bar serving reimagined classics like seafood pozole teaming with calamari, cod, clams and crawfish, tacos and enchiladas with the likes of duck carnitas or shrimp diablo or crowd-favorite chorizo nachos topped with beans, guacamole and jalapeno slaw. Drink offerings include a robust list of tequilas and mezcal, global craft beers and wine and cocktails like margaritas and frozen pina coladas. The dining room and bar sport dark wood accents and Mexican folk art paintings.
