El Borracho - Closed

2001 Locust St. St. Louis, MO 63103 | St. Louis - Downtown | 314-588-0055

Location Description:

Located at 20th and Locust streets, in the former home of Nectar and the Rocket Bar before that, El Borracho combines the look and design of a lively cantina with the drinks and food of a resort and still maintains the familiar center bar with tables along the circumference. The menu offers the usual suspects in Mexican fare - quesadillas, burritos and tacos, but everything is served family style. Tacos can be ordered pancho or gringo style, depending on preference.
