So Yummy!

I absolutely loved this place! The atmosphere is incredible! I had the rock filet and it was cooked perfectly. The sauce they pour over it just tops it all off! I enjoyed every minute of my experience here!

We are happy only going for the Happy Hour. The bar food is better than most entrees. My wife and I can easily have one "appetizer" and make a meal of it, especially the nachos. Drinks are two-for-one, regardless of the label you order. This is one place I can safely say "you cannot go wrong.." The décor is unlike... More

The table side guacamole is quite nice. Such a great selection of foods all in a beautiful setting. Even the bathrooms are pretty spectacular! A little pricey - but well worth it! A Boise gem.

The service, food, and atmosphere at Barbacoa have made it one of my favorite restaurants in Boise. Their service style is similar to the restaurant style-- over the top, amazing, spectacular, almost theatrical! The food is DELICIOUS, and their happy hour from 4-6 (buy one get one drinks) is a MUST. The hot rock steak is the greatest, and their... More

Kicking myself for not snapping any photos! The decor is a little over the top, but the food and service is outstanding. My wife enjoyed the hot rock filet with the chili relleno on the side. She used the hot rock to cook the chili and cheese a bit more. I had the 12-oz prime New York (a special that... More

Comfortable interior with ornate fireplace and unusual light fixtures. Pleased with the generous portions and prompt service. Dinner was well worth the short wait,as we watched those around us consume various exotic desserts. Will go back to test the Valentines Day presentation.

What can one say about Barbacoa? The dinner, the ambiance, the service - all impeccable. I ordered the hot rock filet and it was as always, superb. I can't remember the name of the desert but it was fried ice cream and that was awesome! For those who want a quiet dinner, this is not the place. But if you... More

Our family went here to celebrate our daughter's great report card. It was very noisy and congested. Food is delicious, waitstaff is efficient, but the loud music it too much. It made it so we couldn't really relax. Also, there is quite a nice happy hour here. BUT, if you order your drink with your dinner, during happy hour time,... More

This place is awesome! They come and make guacamole at your table. The atmosphere is fun and they even had a dj playing music. The food was delicious. Would definitely go back.
