Founded in 1992, Charley Brown’s is one of the oldest establishments on our list. Nowadays, it operates in Sukhumvit and attracts hundreds of visitors each year. Chef Primo offers “both quality interpretations of classic Tex-Mex dishes and fresh plates of [traditional] Mexican food”.
Patrons go crazy here for the half-priced margaritas and sangria every Tuesday night. Aside from this, their street food renditions are a must-try. We especially love their Taquitos (190 Baht), filled with salsa, tender chicken or Australian beef. Alternatively, their Empanadas del Mercado (195 Baht) are another popular choice, stuffed with cheese, spinach and chicken.

You’ll find staples such as tacos as well as some lesser-known dishes like the Sopesito (220 Baht) – a dough dish topped with chicken, lettuce and cheese. Moreover, the Carnita (300 Baht) with juicy pulled pork served on top of a soft corn tortilla, is also worth sampling. On the other hand, their desserts are just as good. Our favourite is the Pineapple Chimichanga (160 Baht), a deep-fried burrito stuffed with pineapples.
Upon walking in, you’ll notice its vivid decor of potted cactus plants and skull-shaped Tequila bottles. Diners can sit indoors, or at one of their outside tables that face a quaint garden. Furthermore, their service is top-notch and the staff are attentive. This, coupled with the relaxed ambience and sumptuous fare makes The Missing Burro one of our all-time favourite Mexican restaurants.
