The little sibling of a Davis Square staple opens its doors this evening. Burro Bar, the fifth Alpine Restaurant Group restaurant, is ready to start filling Brookline’s Washington Square with tacos, cheese, snacks, and so much more, according to Boston Magazine.

The doors opened at 1665 Beacon St. at 5 p.m. today, January 30. Though the menu is smaller than at Burro Bar’s older sibling, Painted Burro in Somerville, it features some familiar favorites, with quite a bent toward tacos. There’s a beef tongue taco, as well as a chorizo de la casa version, plus tacos with a range of other meat and seafood fillings. Burro Bar also has a section of small bites and quesos fundidos, or cheesy dips, on the menu. (See the full menu below.)

As for drinks, there are over 100 bottles of tequila, available in one-ounce and two-ounce tastings as well as in margaritas. There are also other cocktails, beers, and wines.

Inside the restaurant, the former Ribelle space, there are 50 dining room seats and 12 at the bar, and the eye-catching restaurant artwork comes from local artist Raul Gonzalez III, who also created pieces for Painted Burro.

Burro Bar is currently open from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. daily; keep an eye out for the launch of Sunday brunch in the not-too-distant future. Also coming up, a seasonal 20-seat patio.
