Pretty ok service. Tequila, mezcal, and drink menu pricing was above average for a pretty pricey neighborhood. The atmosphere was wonderful but the food suffered. Expect $5+ per taco of nominal taste. At least the bathrooms are really nice!

Decided to go here when I saw they had chicken posole - Excellent choice. The posole is a must try. Not many Mexican restaurants serve it. Enchiladas are also excellent. I'm from Texas so eat a LOT of Mexican food. Will definitely eat here again...More

The only reason why I didn't give Barrio a '5' is because it's a little pricey. Not too expensive, but enough for me to question how hungry I was because I didn't want to spend a lot. The food here is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I got the...More

We had a lovely dinner here last night. I had the tacos al pastor. They were pretty good. They had too much pineapple and the avocado sauce maybe should have been on the side. Not exactly authentic but not bad. My husband had the chicken...More

I went to Barrio for brunch with few friends for the first time and we all were impressive with the food and drink. I got the Barrio Sour and it was amazing. I definitely want to go back to try the fish tacos.

Had a lovely evening in a beautiful restaurant, originally thought it was a bit expensive for tacos, but they were incredibly fresh and delicious! Thank you for a lovely evening!

Pretty pricey and not worth the money. The margarita I purchased was tasty, but I didn't realize a Mexican restaurant could ruin carne asada. One...why would you cut your customers meat. Two...if you do....cut against the grain. Meat was chewy and not worth the $25...More
