While my wife was busy getting a tattoo I wandered down the 5th Ave strip in search of a place to sit and wait. I stopped in here because they had ashtrays on some of the tables and I wanted to have a cigar and a couple of beers while I tried to kill some time. It's an excellent spot... More

We were worried about missing the big NBA game on Christmas Day during our vacation but no need to worry, they had lots of TVs and our game was on a couple including the big screen. Good deal on bucket of beer bottles and great service. We had burgers and nachos, both were fine. Fun couple hours, nice staff.

Awful expensive Mojitos.We went in as they seemed to have lots of staff and few visitors. That's because the staff wanted to chat and not serve. Walk by as their are much nicer bars on 5th

Nice bar / restaurant in the middle of playa del carmen's 5th avenue, they have a happening night scene and a busy lunch scene. Whether its drinks or food, stop off at this place during your stay.

I have been in Playa now for about 9 months and get to try out many of the bars and restaurants. Usually take a nice walk along 5ta Ave, then end up at Tequila Barrel for a couple of drinks. Sometimes get some food which has always been excellent. There are so many tourists walking on 5ta that it is... More

Open air bar/grill that opens onto 5th ave. My husband and I grabbed a chair and a snack. It's a great spot for people watching. Always fun happening on 5th. Good music and sports on the TV. Nice staff, Enjoyed!

I do not like to give places 1 star reviews but this place earned it! I have food allergys and am also a picky eater and informed them of my allergy when I ordered my food and they did not follow what I had told them so after getting my food we had to send it back then I got... More

If you want to grab a bite and watch a game then this will be fine, there are a lot of much better food options for the price though in any direction. There's a good, loud party vibe here.

Thank Slamn
