The Painted Burro is probably the busiest restaurant in Davis Square. But if you can get a table here (or a spot in the fun, semi-separate bar), you’ll get some very good Mexican food and some really good margaritas. We suggest sticking with the tacos for the most part, though there’s some interesting appetizers like the chorizo and egg and the crispy Baja fish.
