    Reflect your inner self in a cocktail mixed with Pueblo Viejo. Ask the bartender of 5 Burro Cafe to make a Tequila Sunrise for you.

    Good fun time!! Always packed. Little steep in prices. The crowd is alway good. Great location but shitty parking. Menu is good, but nothing over the top. Cinco de mayo go is a blast there

    Fish tacos are likely the best I've ever had - very flavorful. Frozen passion fruit margaritas are giant, tasty and perfectly combine sweet and sour. Rice and beans are sadly mediocre at best

    Close with a flourish this spring break and enjoy a refreshing Pueblo Viejo Cocktail here at 5 Burro Cafe.

    Steak fajitas are amazing, margaritas are great (if you're going to be there a while, get the pitcher. Trust me). It gets packed so don't expect to stay long.

    Terrible service. This place is only good when it's empty. Otherwise the bartenders can't hang

    The vegetable fajita is so much more than peppers and onions-a filling and healthy entree.

    The best deal you can get it if you're drinking with buddies is a whole pitcher. Instead of individual drinks.

    When you are asked to choose a side dish, opt for the grilled veggies over the beans. Nice mix of well charred vegetables. Healthy and delicious

    It's your best option for Mexican food in Forest Hills. Expect a 45 minute wait and expect a large crowd. Don't come if you cant handle that

    I actually had to "beg" to get chips on the side of my to-go order. Even though I like their food, I can't justify paying $16.00 for two small, empty burritos. Not coming back.

    Plates big enough to share, I have yet to take a girl here who didn't like the margaritas from this place. It's been a staple of the neighborhood and there's a reason.

    There's a minimum of $12 in food per person during "peak hours" and they charge $5 per person when sharing during "off peak hours".. Really?
