El Burro Borracho Laughlin

Laughlin, NV

A visit to Guy Fieri's El Burro Borracho in Harrah's Laughlin

El Burro Borracho has been open for about a year now.   Signs proclaim the 1 year anniversary, and not long ago Guy Fieri visited with guests at his eatery in Laughlin.


We stopped by a drink and to grab something to eat last week.  There were no lines like we had seen earlier in the year, but this is the "slow season" in Laughlin.

As much as I wanted one, I had to pass on the Jalapeno Cilantro Margarita (show below).  We also passed on the delicious (and highly recommended) Trash Can Nachos so we could try something

 Portions are very big and easily shareable or good to take some of it home for a snack.  We ordered the Drunken Fish Tacos and the Chicken Fajitas.

We normally won't order fish tacos if the fish is Swai or Tilapia, but Guy Fieri's were made with Mahi Mahi so we gave it a try.


Menu prices show the non Total Rewards Card Holder price and the discounted price (usually one dollar) for Total Rewards Card Holders.  Cards are free at the Total Rewards Desk so get one. 

We order them baja-style and they were very fresh and tasty. The order came with 3 good sized tacos along with rice and beans.    If you don't particularly like the flavor of lime then it might not be for you.  We, however, thought the Tequila Lime flavor was very good.  Many of the dishes we have tried at El Burro Borracho go heavy on the lime.

Fajitas are a big portion as well.  However, there are only 3 small tortillas included.  There is far more on the to fill them with then there is room.  Perhaps they would give extras tortillas if asked.   These were served sizzling hot and the chicken was juicy and well seasoned.

El Burro Borracho also has a small bar area where you can sit and order.   Guy Fieri also had a wonderful dedication and tribute to his sister (who passed away) painted on the ceiling of El Burro Borracho.

We skipped dessert as well, even though wanted to try the Churros based on recommendations from others.   Perhaps next time.

Here is a link to the current El Burro Borracho menu (including signature drinks):

Service was very good.  It wasn't over the top like the first time we visited.  That time they servers were all using Guy Fieri's catch phrases, which were fun but really not necessary.  We did notice they had (at least on this visit) replaced the very cool cloth napkins with standard Harrah's Laughlin napkins.  The original ones were nice, helped add to the experience.

They no longer used the cute Burro holders to serve the water in.   This was another nice touch that was missing.  Those kinds of things helped make it a unique experience to go with the premium prices on the menu.

Our tab for a beer, a signature drink, and two entrees came to $52 before tip.  It isn't the cheapest Mexican Food in town but it is very good and full of flavor.  Definitely, the best in Laughlin, in our opinion.   

Note: for December of 2015, they are only open on the weekends due to it being the slow season in Laughlin.   

Guy Fieri will also be adding another location for El Burro Borracho in Las Vegas.  The new and even bigger restaurant will be going in at The Rio Las Vegas in the space formerly occupied by Buzzio's.   Watch for it in 2016.
