Great place to watch games, people watch and make a few bets.. Normal bar food menu. It does get crowded for big events and you need to get their early to get a table.

This is one of the those places you can't go just once. Both times I ordered a blue cheese bacon burger and it was amazing! There is blue cheese inside of the patty! If you like tequila, do the tequila tasters. They give you three different shots of a certain brand for a very good price. We may or may... More

On my first evening in Playa, based on tripadvisor reviews, we stopped here for drinks and to scope out a location to watch the College World Series games on Sat. Night. The margarita I ordered was sickly sweet so I switched to beer. The NBA finals were on and the commentary had to compete with loud music being piped in... More

I've looked into your case of what happened and by whom. On our sports betting camera and audio we've determined who gave you the incorrect information resulting in you not watching the game you desired and your disappointment. The employee responsible has been dealt with, commission removed and on probation for 3 months leaning towards being fired. The game you... More

Lovely place on 5th avenue to drink with music going and alcohol flowing! Prices are good and the food is good quality and big pro rations for the price. Servers attentive and quick to keep you watered up.

This is definetely the best bar in the 5th avenue. GREAT SERVICE, good music and cold beer! The prices are inexpensive and the food is delicious. They have all sports on tv all the time, a sports betting room where you can play your luck with a bet. A place you can't miss while you visit Playa.

We loved it the food, my husband had a Mexican dish can't remember the name with mash potatoes and shaved pork on top, I had a soup that was the top and grilled salmon the best. There is nothing I can say otherwise.

I was there to watch the NBA playoffs. The absolutely good thing about Tequila Barrel is, they have all the sport games on big TVs. The food is a mix between Mexican/American/International. All the burgers are 120 Pesos and that is to expensive for what you get. All the sodas are not cold. I asked for a cold one but... More

Perfect little spot for lunch. The plates are huge you could easily share . The service is great and the food awesome . Take a break but still in the centre of the action on the street.
