Our third visit to Playa del Carmen and every time we visit we go to Tequilla Barrel for a good atmosphere, good music and good basic food. Try the wings, Trash can Nachos and the Enchiladas all excellent along with a lovely cold frozen Mango Margherrita. great place to visit when you are in PDC.

It is one of the best places in Playa to watch sporting events. The place is very lively during good games. The chicken tacos were outstanding. Service was great. Just a fun place to visit, whether you eat or just have a couple drinks.

My wife and I stopped for lunch on 7/8/2014. Initial service was fair. Wrong order was brought to our table. When our order arrived it was cool and tasteless. After picking through a little it took 20 minutes to get our check. Just a few hours later the full impact hit with all the ugly symptoms of food poisoning. The... More

We heard that these guys have good burgers, so we checked them out. Mine came not hot at all. They must have finished cooking it and let it sit for 10 minutes or so to get that cool. My husband's was supposed to be a burger stuffed with provolone cheese. Instead it was two patties with no cheese. He sent... More

We stopped at Tequila Barrel twice this week while shopping on 5th avenue to have a light lunch and something to drink. Both times we ordered the Trash Can Nachos and the Fajita Nachos because they are the best nachos we tried in PDC and the bottled beer was nice and cold. The wait staff were very friendly and offered... More

While in Playa Del Carmen this year we had the good fortune to walk by tequila Barrel, right before the Mexico World cup match. We decided to find a spot at the bar and watch the game with the locals and soccer fanatics. We were so impressed with the food and drinks here and absolutly loved the atmostphere.

Watched the Mexico/Croatia soccer match here, and couldn't have wished for a better place to be. Lively, fun atmosphere, with great staff - especially want to single out Beto. Super nice guy, warm and very welcoming. Thanks Beto for making our 12 year old Owen feel special!

It is a great spot to spend a couple of hours people watching or in my case waiting to the women to finish shopping. the drinks aren't cheap.
