Consistently good food. Can be loud. Seating outside is nice but service can be slow out there. Very good tortillas and enchiladas.

What a disappointment. The beef was like a paste. The taco was mushy. The restrooms were pure filth. I wouldn't go back.More

This review is not about the food, although it is great, it is about the service and management. My church went there on a Sunday for lunch without a reservation. We had 30 people and they seated us in less than 15 minutes. They had...More

Overall the food was pretty good, but the puffy tacos were very disappointing. They were not cooked enough to be crisp and fell apart the moment they were served. Then I had kind of soggy shards of masa with my taco salad (what my taco...More

It has been many years since I've been to Los Barrios, and it does not disappoint! Started with a frozen Sangria Swirl Margarita. Excellent! Wanted another, but refrained since I was driving. I ordered the Enchiladas Verdes and oh my, I love their tomatillo sauce!...More
