Delicious, authentic, Mexican food

My husband and I were in the area with no idea about the restaurant scene, and found Xicohtencatl. Seated right away, and noticed the Mexican decor was fun, but not overdone and cartoonish- just right. The fresh salsa and chips to start were excellent. I had the Tres Salsas Enchiladas, sort of a... read more

We love Xicho (as it's referred to). We loooove their margaritas which have a consistent taste of fresh lime. We love their menu--always know what to expect: good quality Mexican food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

This is my go-to spot in the Berkshires. The staff are friendly and helpful, the drinks are excellent and the Camarones Machos Grandes are delicious. Best guacamole around. I wish they had more seating, especially in the winter ski season-- it can be hard to get a table on the weekends. In the summer, sitting on the porch and sipping... More

Miserly poor portions of mashed rice and refried beans in place of real beans!! False advertisement. Plus I spent thirty dollars in take out and was left hungry. Barely one slice of avocado in corner of last part of the tiny fourteen dollar burrito. I would have been more satisfied with taco bell

Excellent service and up-scale menu. Best margaritas. Don't miss their home-made guacamole. Plan to share, generous portions.

You can not miss the restaurant as you drive through Great Barrington. It is the bright yellow building on the top of small hill as the main street. Beautiful flowers and landscaping. There is a great parking area for their customers to pull into. First impression to walk in. . . .it was very clean, and we greeted with a... More

The last time I was at Xicohtencatl was in the summer. Since then they have modified the menu and have put someone with a defter hand in the kitchen. Although I have consistently enjoyed my meals at this place, I was presently surprised to find the food better than ever. As some reviewers observed, there are some very pricey items... More

Delicious meal on the porch. Very prompt service and great advice about beer and entree selections. My companion had lamb chops and I had pork. We shared and both were great! Fresh salsa and chips while we waited (briefly) for our food was a great way to begin the meal.

We have just returned from a meal in this authentic Mexican restaurant. We were expecting a lot as the staff are almost all Mexican and give the place an authentic feel. The service was great and our server was really attentive and helpful. However after the delicious (if spiced) nachos and salsa the remainder of the meal was disappointing. I... More
