Took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. We had the Chicken Tinga tacos and the skinny margaritas as we do not like pre-mix.

I stopped at Barriba cantina for dinner. Atmosphere was nice, there was a live band that sounded good. I ordered the cheese enchiladas and they were tasty. Not great, but solid. Drinks were good as wel. Not a bad place to stop near the Alamo.

It was our first day on the riverwalk. This spot was listed in a little tour booklet and we decided to try it. There is a parking lot across the street, we were able to walk in for a late lunch and be seated right away. The patio had full sun, but we did not care because we live in... More

The drinks have a good level of alcohol...not watered down at all. The chips and salsa were a great pair for our drinks. Very... More

This is a 3 star restaurant with good service and on the river walk - thus the 4 star rating. Stay away from chicken tinga. Carnitas was a little better than average. But, the outside seating, river view and live music make it enjoyable venue. Nice selection of tequilas.
