We were introduced to the Barrio Queen by Taste It Tours (which I highly recommend) Today we stopped for a libation and some munchies during Happy Hour. Ordered pork stuffed poblano peppers and mini tortas. Yum on all counts. A trifle slow on service (I swear they are always busy) but worth the wait. A definite stop ... Even if... More

Expensive for lunch, 3 people with one drink each was $100. The food is good, the service is good, the Cinqo-de-Mayo decor is trendy. The chopped salads are large and delicious and the E-Coch Pibil is great. Llocated in trendy downtown Scottsdale beside the canal.

A group two couples enjoyed a great dinner after wandering around the fun riverfront area in Scottsdale. They are located on a pedestrian plaza area. The menu offers a wide variety of classic authentic Mexican dishes along with Mexican twists on classic American foods like hamburgers and hot dogs. You can find all flavors from super spicy to mild.

Great restaurant. Food was OK. Service was great. The tacos could've used a little more seasoning for flavor

We like this Old Town Scottsdale restaurant and bar. Great Happy Hour menu, plenty to choose from. Place has indoor and out dining and good atmosphere, very casual. Since first here a couple years ago few new nice touches. The Chopped is Salad is a much better than typical taco salad only selection in many Mexican restaurants. My wife got... More

Barrio Pollo burrito and The Queen enchilada were excellent. Authentic homemade chips were so good! Were looking for a place to eat and so thankful finding this gem in quaint Scottsdale. Had come from Seattle for a few days, it was surreal to be eating dinner on the outdoor patio!

Come for the made at the table guacamole alone! Ours was adorned with pomegranate seeds and it was incredible. Decor is fun, all Dia de Los Muertos inspired. Very hip and quirky little place. The only thing keeping this from a 5-star review was my entree. Other food at our table was awesome, but my tacos were lacking, both in... More

We visited Barrio Queen as part of a Scottsdale food tour. The building is interesting and inviting with lots of interesting art and lighting. Our hostess was very friendly and explained all of the margarita ingredients, including a special Tequila they serve, and the two tacos that we sampled. Their homemade chips were delicious, authentic, rustic chips, and the salsa... More
