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

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.

We had a party of 8 for beverages & food a couple hours before a Wild Hockey game. We had small plates + beverages. Chips'n'salsa were excellent! The home made salsa (3 choices) were outstanding flavor and ramped-up heat from the mild salsa verde to the Habanero red. Just a little dab of salsa was exquisite falvor - totally different... More

After being on the dance floor my daughter returned back to her table to discover her brand new iPhone was missing. Using the iPhone tracking app we discovered that the bouncer had stollen her phone. We confronted him and he returned the phone. Don't go this restaurant, or if you've been here and had something stollen there is a good... More

We picked this place to get some apps to share before we had a show. I felt that there was a few things that I found awkward regarding the presentation of food- such as we ordered guac and it came in a huge bowl, but the salsa that came with it was so small i could barely fit my chips... More
