Super friendly staff and food was great.
4 course brekky menu incl. beverages for only 40 Quetzales.

1st course was a bowl with fresh fruits, a bit cereals and yogurt.

2nd course was a nice tomato soup

3rd course you can choose. I chose omlette with peppers, avocado, cheese, bacon and tomatoes. It came with a hash brownie, a sausage and a little salad.

4th course were fluffy pancakes

Drink wise we had coffee, tea and fresh orange juice included!

It was delicious and we'll be back next weekend!

The beer list is impressive and cheap. The place has a friendly vibe. We visited on a Monday so it was quiet and ordered wings and chilli. Wings were dry and the chilli was sloppy. Stick to the drinks

I was GRANDPAcking in San Pedro for nearly 2 months.
I tried almost everywhere at some time or another ...
But the El Barrio became my local; I had many a great time down there.
The El Barrio is a Sports Bar with restaurant.
Sean, the owner, and his staff are great ... get to know them.
On a Monday evening they do a Chicken Wing Special ... order GTQ25 in drinks (a 1L bottle of beer will do) and get chicken wings for GTQ2 each with a selection of dips to choose from (I loved the blue cheese).
On a Saturday and Sunday they do a fantastic 4 course Breakfast between 10am and 2pm. You start with a big bowl of fruit, yogurt and muesli. Then you get Soup of the Day with croutons. Then you get a choice of 3 mains: I liked the 3-egg omelette with bacon, sausage, and savoury potatoes. You finish with as many pancakes as you can eat. It includes unlimited tea / coffee. Unbeatable.
Sports lovers will love this place ... they play all of the best games across several TVs. This is the GO TO place to watch EPL with a bunch of fun people. They show many other sports too. If there's a good game on, they will open as early as 6:30am so that everyone can get together and watch it with their mates (especially when Spurs or Man Utd are playing!).
At the back, you will find the best Pool Table in San Pedro and a dart board.
On Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday afternoons (starting at 2pm) they have a social game of Poker which attracts a big (and regular) crowd. For a GTQ20 buy-in you can have hours of fun with some great people.
But, the most endearing thing about the place is the people ...
A lot of expats hang out here - both young and old.
You won't have any problem making friends.
PS: Wind Stuart (barman) up about Spurs ... you're bound to get a laugh ... you might even get a free shot of Tequila.
Reasonable prices.
:-)

El Barrio has become one of my favorite hangout places. Friendly poker games 3 days a week and an amazing weekend brunch that is well worth the 40Q. Large beer selection and a staff that remembers your name make it a great place to be any day of the week.
