El Viejo is always a hit for lunch. Great fish tacos, burritos, hamburgers. Their condiment bar is loaded with a dozen or more salsas and toppings and always friendly staff with great prices.

Myself and my fiancé had breakfast here. She had the chilaquiles and I had the eggs and chorizo. The chilaquiles was a good portion and had great flavour. The eggs and chorizo were good however I found the portion to be small. Both meals were cooked perfectly and the pricing cannot be beat.

While watching all the South Dakota license plates drive by ( another story for another time ) wife and I popped in for genuine, very fresh and VERY affordable authentic Baja tacos. Garnish bar is fun. It's good street food with no drama.

We always have a great lunch at Viejos. They have the best fish and shrimp tacos ever! They always offer a large variety of salsas, guacamole, and peppers to add as you wish. Prices are ridiculously reasonable!

We stopped by for lunch and had the chicken salad. The cost was just $3 in US currency. It had great presentation and was delicious.

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.
