The most delicious eggs benedict (with a difference) and yummy tortilla chips and salsa. Great vibe on weekends! They have good cocktails, and an overwhelming array of tequilas! Great spot for big or small groups. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Great location and a nice place for Mexican food. They can accommodate large parties as well. Service is really good... our drinks took quite a bit to come to our table but the server was very apologetic and took them off our check. The food,...More

I found Bario by doing a search on the Internet. I was looking for a restaurant in the Capital Hill area that we could have a group dinner at. Bario turned out to be a great option. We had one side of the restaurant. The...More
