You can't beat the prices, the service, the salsa bar, and location, If you don't eat at el viejo, you haven't been to Los Barriles

Excellent fish and shrimp tacos! Has a small selection of beer, no mixed drinks. Make the tacos yours with a salsa bar! Friendly service. Make sure to go early as they close at 3pm.

Sadly, not that I know of. However, the prices are cheap no matter when.

By US standards, cheap. By Mexico standards, moderate. My wife and I eat lunch for under $15 combined (and often under $10) including drinks.

I don't see reviews for any of Los Barriles' many restaurants or the local attractions for that matter. I live here and would be glad to provide more information about this great little town if you are interested.
