Great bar-style atmosphere to enjoy some delicious mexican style food and kick back on some margaritas. Plenty of tv's to enjoy the games on and within walking distance of Petco...if you are going to a baseball game.

Delish food, fresh cocktails. This is a great place to grab a margarita right before a Padres Game. It will be standing room only, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend the margaritas. They come in multiple flavors, but my favorite is the prickly pear.

Great service, good drinks. My skirt steak taco was fabulous and the street corn was the best item I had. The skewered shrimp on kale slaw was good but the shrimp was overcooked. It was worth eating as it paired well with the kale slaw.

Two words: Jicama taco WHAT?! It's sliced jicama that serves as the tortilla, topped with cold-cooked shrimp, mango salsa and crema. I've had a lot of mexican food in my lifetime, but nothing this unique and dare I say... healthy? If you haven't been to The Blind Burro, I recommend giving it a shot. Tons of tasty tequila drinks to wash down those heavenly tacos.

Great atmosphere with quick service. Had the marinated steak and corn that had a tasty fiery taste. House margaritas were subpar.

Delicious, fresh and impeccably seasoned guacamole. But the rest was below par. Fried lobster taco was mushy. Salads were limp from being severely overdressed. Chips were dripping with oil. Eager, friendly staff.

First visit to the Blind Burro but not my last! Starting off with the chips & guac was a right choice as well as getting the salsa flight. The chips were so fresh and warm you know the rest of the food was going to be good. The Rolled Tacos with mole sauce and Shrimp Tacos are simply incredible. The place is very open and had a great feel with the DJ playing some really cool music. This is a great place for before or after a padres game! #cityexperts

FIRST VISIT in 2013: Sorry, I couldn't really find anything GREAT about this place. The food was so-so. The margs were worth a few stars on their own. But the place was really dim and kind of depressing. If you're on a date, maybe this would be the place to be. Otherwise...there are many other great Mexican places in Diego worth spending your dime. SECOND VISIT in 2014: Gave this place a second try during a taco crawl event put on by Google and let me say that I've changed my tune a bit. I arrived with the crew and we proceeded to our reserved section of the bar. The sun was out and they had all the windows open which gave it a nice feel. The DJ was pumping some tunes and the overall vibe was good. The food sampled in this culinary tour de force included chips w/ the 4 flavor salsa flight ( I enjoyed ALL 4 varieties of that tasty mex-spread), traditional guacamole (you know...the GOOD fat), Sonoran Queso Crisp (fancy cheese crisp), sweet potato-chorizo taquitos (mmmmmmm...mmmmmmm good), and my favorite, the anchiote shrimp tacos. All the food was on point and way better than my first visit. However, I only saw my waitress twice...maybe. Overall, I thought this place deserved one more star over the one I gave them previously. Who knows, maybe they'll get the 5 star treatment someday.
