Lovely Margaritas and great food

Whenever in Minneapolis downtown I always visit Barrio. I love the variety of Margaritas and tequila shots they have to offer. The food is great and service is prompt. Must visit if you like Mexican cuisine.

Nice place to sit outside and have drinks and appetizers! Went last night and again today with different group! Margaritas and White Sangrias are very good! Chips and fresh guacamole amazing! Salsas were quite spicy but good in small moderation.

I had some time to kill in Minneapolis, so per a friend's recommendation I checked out Barrio for lunch. I sat on the patio and enjoyed people watching while I had a chicken taco and potato sopes. I was pleased to be enjoying some good Mexican food all the way in Minnesota. I also had a Mamacita Margarita made with... More

Making reservations through Google Maps was so easy. First time doing that and just a breeze. I am not a fan of tall tables and I would have picked somewhere else had I known that was pretty much all they had. The food was good, nothing amazing. At one point someone swopped by and took a plate without asking that... More

We stopped by this bar for a drink and got the queso fundito appetizer. It was very delicious. We were also given a shot of tequila that was amazingly delicious. It was a sipping tequila, don't waste it on a shot! Unfortunately I don't remember the name, just that it was in the $11-$12 range and it was the bartender's... More

We decided on Barrio for dinner. There were 6 of us. The food was good but be prepared to order more then 2 tacos to fill up. They are small but making you want more. The meal was fresh and the service was good.

We went with a group of nine, and all of us had the guacamole, which was very good. Most of us had the "Mexican" dishes --- burritors, enchilados, or tacos. Since they're small, we had two each, and those with big appetites ate three. No one was unhappy with his/her choice. My sister ordered the corn chowder, which was delicious.... More

They have the best food. I love that they serve the food as soon as its completed rather then waiting for everyone's food to get done and then bringing it out. The chicken enchiladas are just amazing.

The menu is more tapas style where each item is served individually and you build your own dinner. The homemade guacamole is terrific and the chips are fresh. Each dish is made to order so they come out separately so you may be eating at different times than your friends at the table but the delay is not such that... More
