In Somerville, Painted Burro is raucous, fun, ready to party
More upscale Mexican restaurants? In Davis Square, the Painted Burro shows Somerville has an appetite for tacos and tequila.
On a Friday night at the Painted Burro in Davis Square, the volume is high. It’s not so much the music as the din of the crowd. Last year, upscale Mexican restaurants took over the city. When another opened in the former Gargoyles space, the question was: Do we really need more fancified tacos and tequila? In Somerville, yes, clearly. Often going out to eat is not about what your city has to offer, but what your neighborhood does.
