My son and I ate supper here before the basketball game. We were lucky to grab the last table and were tight for time. No worries as we ordered tacos, tostadas and tamals off of the nightly specials menu. All were delicious. We also ordered the guacamole with the chips and that too was really tasty. All around good tapas... More

My wife and I were in Minneapolis for a short trip from Chicago and were so happy we stumbled on Barrio. The food was solid, the drinks were great, and the atmosphere was really cool. I can see the bar area getting really congested on weekend nights but what bar isnt? I definitely suggest checking it out for more of... More

We stopped in after a concert for apps and drinks. The tacos are amazing, as is the guacamole. Love the selection of small plate tacos, so much flavor! Excellent margaritas as well! Friendly and attentive service.

The food came out really quickly and was delicious. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. Everything was very fresh and flavorful. The margaritas were good and the bartenders were great. It was very busy so we sat at the bar. If you are planning to go with a group be sure to make a reservation. It fills up!

Had a quick dinner while in town for a convention. Great tequila list, the tacos are ala cart so you can try several, and the chips were f-ing wonderful.

Barrio has the best margaritas I have ever had! Chips and guac were excellent as were the chicken quesadilla. Definitely have to visit Barrio whenever I'm in downtown Minneapolis!

Our group of 8 or so ate here during a conference. The service was good - attentive but not so frequent as to interrupt the conversation. The food was ok, nothing awful, but nothing that stood out either. I had tacos - chicken, fish, and pork belly. I thought the pork belly was the tastiest and would order again.

I've taken my family there a couple of times and even though they are not foodies, they know good food when they taste it. A simple menu of tacos with carnitas, chicken and shredded beef complement their margaritas to make for a satisfying meal. The guacamole is served in a molcajete and is delicious. For the Minnesotans who only like... More

Had dinner here with a colleague while staying at a local hotel. The guacamole was outstanding and could have made a meal out of just that. Had a couple cocktails that I thought were definitely worth the cost. Service was decent but we were seated at an awkward table in the front window looking out on street construction, unfortunate for... More
