I went to Barrio for brunch with few friends for the first time and we all were impressive with the food and drink. I got the Barrio Sour and it was amazing. I definitely want to go back to try the fish tacos.

Had a lovely evening in a beautiful restaurant, originally thought it was a bit expensive for tacos, but they were incredibly fresh and delicious! Thank you for a lovely evening!

I've been to this restaurant many times - but not recently, until today. We either caught them on a bad day, or they have gone downhill. Saturday brunch was a letdown, with sub-par breakfast burritos and a Bloody Mary too spicy to finish. Service was...More

I've eaten here at least 20 times and have never been disappointed. I love the Barrio chopped salad and the tacos and enchiladas have interesting ingredients (butternut squash and kale enchilada for example) and are delicious. Their happy hour has has a large variety of...More

It was delicious and the happy hour prices were great. I got the mango margarita, and it was rimmed with chile lime powder (YUM) and I also got a chicken taco which was $4. I thought it would be small but one was perfectly stuffed!...More
