Good food.....a little pricey......great atmosphere.

Xicohtencatl is a good restaurant. In the warmer weather you can dine outside.The Burritos are great and the Sangria is pretty good too. They have a pretty extensive menu and specials as well. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Mexican food. The service has always been good as well.

After skiing at nearby Butternut, we pulled into Xicohtenatl on a whim. This turned out to be a great decision. Great, authentic, Mexican food. Delicious guacamole, tender carnitas and great fish tacos. To top it off they were super accommodating to our young children. Go, you won't be disappointed.

Some of the best Mexican food I have had in quite some time. This is well worth a stop for dinner and make sure you get the guacamole.

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 salsa sampler with enchiladas, that was very... 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
