I love barbacoa! It has never been a disappointment. Steak on a rock is a classic to take friends who haven't experienced barbacoa. And the bartenders create me the funnest of drinks. A great place for date night, girls night out or big party fun!

Outstanding bar and happy hour. Atmosphere and menu are top notch. Our server was very good. The table side guacamole is made exactly the way want it. Over all, one of the better restaurants in Boise.

This place is worth visiting for its desserts only. I have tried Creme Brule’ in many different places in the world, this one at the Baracoa is GOOD. Apart from that i had the unavoidable steak, which is is also very good, but they serve...More
