Good experience

There are some interesting reviews for this place - very good, very bad (hope if a bouncer really did steal that iPhone that he is no longer employed there). With such opposite reviews it makes me think inconsistency and management should be aware. We only visited at the bar as we were curious to... read more

We went to barrio tequila bar in Minneapolis, 925 Nicollet mall. I could not find it here at tripadvisor. Lovely place, eating outside. I enjoyed Chicken enchilada and beef enchilada. Wooow. Took a picture of what we had. All great. Go there and enjoy the food ;)

I happen to be in St. Paul for business on Cinco de Mayo. I inquired with a hotel of a good Mexican restaurant nearby and this was a recommendation. I now know Mexican is not going to be my first choice again. This is a tapas style restaurant. An expensive one at that. The average price was around five dollars... More

Went there last night for a family dinner. The place was way too loud. I guess I should say it just really wasn't a good style of meal for me and our setting. The food while some was just OK and another was good came out when it was ready. Therefore, people were eating at different time. We had a... More

This place was great for happy hour. The pork slider was really good and so was the pork belly taco. I enjoy places that bring out a salsa sampler, and it was great to try the varieties. Margaritas were OK, but for the happy hour price it was just fine. Lots of fun and good food.

I had been a few years since we had been to Barrio and after going last night (a Saturday) I am left wondering why we waited so long. Our previous visits had been good, with the food, drink and atmosphere being good. Last night it seemed that the food had come up a notch and was very good. We enjoyed... More

Tried Barrio with some co-workers, loved the $10 lunch special - came with 2 tacos of the day and your own guac and salsa with home-made everything!! Will definitely be back. Try the limeade - it's good!

Four of us when to Barrio on Saturday after having dinner at a nearby restaurant. None of us are tequilla experts, but we wanted to try something different and Barrio looked interesting. We got there about 9:30 and it was very quiet (unlike Bulldogs down the street which was packed). We were seated at a high top table that was... More

We searched Open Table the week before New Year's for an early dinner reservation for New Year's Eve and found a spot at Barrio Lowertown. Our hostess wanted to seat us at the back by the kitchen doors but we insisted on something less, well, intrusive and we were shown to a more centrally located table. Everything went well from...

The food and ambiance at Barrio were great but our server could not have been less interested in serving us. She seemed put out taking our order and when we ordered a second round of drinks. I wouldn't go back despite enjoying my meal.
