Been to MINERO several times with Family and Friends but never had the Burger ... this time I was invited for the Wednesday Burger. While it was excellent, my favorite Burger remains the one at HUSK (belongs to the same Family of Restaurants).

Minero is a small place but has big flavors. The chips and guacamole are fantastic!! The chips are literally like crack they are so addictive. The margaritas were very good only wish they came in a slightly bigger glass/serving. The atmosphere is great for couples...More
