Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho Expected to Open Early 2016 at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino

LAS VEGAS (October 29, 2015) Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is pleased to announce restaurateur, chef, author and Emmy Award winning television host Guy Fieri expects to open El Burro Borracho in early 2016. The restaurant will be Fieri’s second Las Vegas restaurant offering, the first being his popular Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

El Burro Borracho, or the Drunken Donkey in its literal translation, will bring a vibrant, fun atmosphere with the Guy Fieri touch. Guests will enjoy authentically prepared Mexican dishes with upscale touches and the signature, flavorful flair you would expect from Fieri. Crispy Mahi Mahi Juan Tacos, Flaming Queso Fundido, Acapulco Gold Salad, Drunken Fish Tacos, Lava Rock Shrimp, signature tortas, enchiladas, burritos and an array of house made, signature salsas are just a few of the items available on the menu.

“Vegas is my home away from home, so bringin’ the Burro to Las Vegas is huge for me,” said Fieri. “I can’t wait to bring it to a location as iconic as the Rio.”

“At the Rio we are all about high-energy and fun, which makes it the perfect home for Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho,” said Dan Walsh, General Manager of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. “We look forward to guests experiencing the incredible dishes and drinks paired with the party atmosphere Guy is known for.”

El Burro Borracho will be steps away from the lively VooDoo Beach pool, and will carry with it a relaxed yet entertaining atmosphere that will entice guests to eat, drink and fiesta. In addition to featuring an array of signature salsas, bocaditos, street tacos and more, El Burro Borracho will have a variety of imported beers, tequilas, signature margaritas and cocktail creations.
