About the restaurant
Burro is a lively taco joint that is just as much about fun as it is food. This great hangout is open from lunch until late at night, meaning it can be a great place for an afternoon snack, a spot to do some late-night dining and everything in between. Burro is just as proud of its drink menu as it is of its food. There is a long list of custom craft cocktails that showcase the creativity of Burro's bartenders.Burro's menu revolves around the humble taco. The best thing about this dish is that it's so adaptable. Some of the tacos guess will find here include a classic fish, spicy Brussels sprout, charred broccoli & Summer corn, achiote chicken, jerk pork and spicy beef cheek. The other side of the menu is a section simply labeled "not tacos" that has entrées like whitefish ceviche and ahi tuna tostadas.

We’ve been to Rust a couple times now, each time being a great experience. Matt was our server on Father’s Day. He was quite attentive and always on top of things. And as always, the food was great quality. We got the cauliflower appetizer and Tomahawk to share. Will definitely be back again.

About the restaurant
Why The North Coal? The concept was created by the feeling of being away from city life with family and friends. For us, that’s Northern Ontario, but as lucky as we are to experience that way of life, not everyone is. Our mission is to provide that feeling regardless of your surroundings.

Located in the heart of Downtown Burlington, The North Coal is the perfect place for Summer Drinks, Family Dinners or just a place to kick back with your friends after a long week!

My buddy and I met here for dinner after a quick google search for options. It was a fantastic experience from tip to tail. Our service was excellent, the food was phenomenal and we could not have asked for a better experience. We have found our new go-to spot for our meetings.

We sat on the covered patio. Great ambience. Friendly and timely service we both had the Coronation Chicken Wrap. It was delicious. They have a broad wine and beer menu. This was our second visit here. We will return. Value is solid.
