There's oro in them thar hills. Against all odds—Forest Hills ain't rowdy—5 Burro is a kick-ass, rock-juked Mexican cantina drawing drinkers and diners alike. Tables in the small back room are packed by 7:30pm. Start with a strong, slushy margarita (lime and strawberry stand out) and sensational nachos con carne, topped with a heap of tender marinated steak. Keep the meat coming with first-rate beef fajitas. The Mexican cooks' creations are dependably delicious and generous; you'll be the burro packing leftovers home.
