Service was great. The food was the high light, no complaints, more than enough food for what we paid. Mexican for sure.

Barrigas is one of my favorite west side eatery's. They have a dozen types of tacos!! The tacos or enchilada with arecheta steak (tampequena) are the best things to eat there. They also have the white melty Mexican cheese with strips of chile or chorizo. The only thing lacking is the Margaritas are not good. They make them with mixer... More

My husband and I prefer food that tastes like you're in Mexico, rather than Tex-Mex. This has all the choices you'd expect south of the border, and cheerful staff as well.

Great Mexican food much better than chuys (that everyone raves about) this is the real thing not Tex-Mex ; and the margaritas are truly the best in town. I specifically like the beef tacos (arrachera )covered with green chili cheese sauce. They also have a weekend breakfast brunch buffet which is decent.

Yah, it's the Mexican version of US pulled pork and WOW. Place is huge, service is on top of it all. I'll be hard pressed to try something else when I go back but I'll force myself.

Walked in and got a table immediately. Served us chips & salsa while we looked at the menu. They don't make Chimichangas (my fave) but walked us through a couple of other selections. Hubby chose the Mexican Plate and I had Tampiquena. They were both a hit. Yummy food, some local entertainment, and the prices were reasonable.

We've been here several times. Food always pretty good to very good; with a wide selection of authentic Mexican dishes. Service is hit-or-miss. Most recent visit was on a Sunday evening. Live singer was too loud for relaxed conversation. Recommended for real Mexican food, though.

We like going to Barrigas as they always have friendly staff and good food. The restaurant is clean and spacious so you aren't packed on top of other diners. I enjoyed the fried sea bass platter. The enchilada platter and chicken fajitas were very good.
