Been going to tequila barrel for quite a few years now. Fun atmosphere, acceptable food, good staff. Just a couple growing concerns: ~Their drink prices are high. Equal to those you'll expect to find in major US cities. The only exception are the buckets of beer, those are fairly in line with the rest of playa. ~Seems to be an... More

It is true, Playa del Carmen is not cheap and with the present growth rate will not be getting any cheaper. We've only raised drink prices 1 time in the last 3 for 4 years and had to due to rising costs. This "unsavory element" is unfortunately around or inside of every popular gathering spot in Playa and across Mexico.... More

We came here almost every night. We had quick and attentive service every time we visited. I liked watching and listening to the music videos while I caught the game on another TV. We would tip the DJ and he would play what ever we wanted. After many nights of tipping the DJ our last night there he spotted us... More

This little restraunt is very quant, right on 5th avenue. The food is great, portions are huge. Great for a cold beer in the middle of a hot day. I have stopped here many times and will always go back.

We stopped in here our first night in Playa. It is a super loud place but we wanted to watch an NFL game so we went for it. The service was extremely slow and the food was bland. We spent over $120 and left feeling disappointed. Don't waste your time.

This place is very clean and fun. They play great music and even let you make requests. I was excited to see that they make some of the harder to find cocktails. Bathrooms are clean here too.

The staff is on top of it....very attentive and the food is good for a hot spot. Great place to watch sports and place bets. At night the atmosphere is young and fun...free tequila shot if you get on the bar or dance on the pole.
