Excellent Margaritas and Small Plates!

Their house margarita was perfect and delicious - my group enjoyed the guacamole, loved the queso fundido, shared the beef scewers and each had a taco (they are small) and it was the perfect amount of food! I wish they offered chips and a fresh pico as an option - their salsas were all a little... read more

Loved this place. First of all, they actually have a Happy Hour with $3.00 Tequila shots! Not any old Tequila, but some of the best on the market. The waiter was awesome, he was able to offer Tequila pairings with each meal. I had two meals, or should I say small plate. They are THE PERFECT SIZE! I think we... More

I was in MN, to attend the SGMP National Conference (Society Of Government Meeting Professionals. I will first say that I went TWICE, I couldn't help myself. First, the vibe is very cool and eclectic. The waiter was amazing, knew everything on the menu in detail. I was also lucky enough to get in during Happy Hour-can you say $3.00... More

We had a varied, excellent meal including the Cubana sandwich and salad. Others had tacos. All the food was expertly prepared, timely served, in an atmosphere that was conducive for discussion with colleagues and friends. We certainly would return again in the future.

I love all of the vegetarian options. The guacamole is to die for and I always have to order the queso fundito and the corn chowder... Amazing! I like to try different margaritas each time and got the strawberry one this last time which was very tasty. I always have a good time and the food is spot on. My... More

I went here on the recommendation of my hotel. It was a Monday night but the restaurant was quite busy & has a good buzz about it. The staff were very friendly & took the time to explain how the portions worked & give recommendations. I ordered the beet & goats cheese salad & the chicken skewers, both of which... More

We've visited Barrio on several occasions and the meal is always good. The service isn't as friendly and prompt as past visits. We will continue to visit while downtown. Great patio seating when it's nice outside.

We stopped in here for lunch shortly after arriving in town and were sat right away. The menu has a lot of interesting choices but few of them seemed well executed. Our margaritas were all just OK, nothing special despite the place being a tequila bar. They barely give you any chips (and have the audacity to charge you for... More

Start with the homemade guacamole...do NOT pass it up. Best we've ever had..it's that simple!! Then move on to the fish tacos. My wife had ahi tuna and mahi mahi. I had the skirt steak and the mahi mahi. I tried her ahi tuna and she tried the skirt steak. Let's just say these easily compete with the fish tacos... More
