What a great find. Just walked in & was greeted by cool and friendly bar tender. Menu of over 150 tequila options. You must try the Queso fundido. Amazing!

Stopped in looking to get dinner after a fun day with friends. Paid $5 each for small tacos that came out at random times so nobody got their food at the same time or together. And after a $40 tab we left hungry. Wouldn't waste my time or money here again unless I had all night and was just looking... More

The drinks and food are fantastic. If it's tequila you are looking for, this is the place to go. They have an enormous list of tequila, flights and margaritas. I tried the ahi tuna taco and the mahi-mahi taco. Both were awesome. The outdoor seating, overlooking Mears Park is great and the service was impeccable.

Strolled in late last night for a nap cap. Desperately wanting something better than the bad attitude next door at Bulldog. Was met by a very sweet waitress (cute name started with a T) who seated us on the patio. I ordered a sangria with club soda and it was delish! Refreshing, bubbly, not to sweet and garnished with 2... More

Barrio offers a taco buffet or I had a special which was chips and guac and two taco's for $10. I never find the food here amazing. It's fresh the tacos are small and they usually come on corn tortillas which are not my favorite. The restaurant is nice, it has a nice ambiance and sidewalk seating in the summer... More

Barrio Tequila Bar does many things well ... interesting, tasty menu ... comfortable, inviting atmosphere ... decent wait service. However, its the little things that keep Barrio from being a five star restaurant. The menu is ala carte ... as in you order a taco or a enchilada. Price points are $4 to $6 per item, so if you're hungry... More

In St. Paul for a family visit and we went to Barrio. Nice location on a small metro park called Mears. On a rainy Friday night the place was jumping but very, very loud. If you want an intimate conversation this is not the place. This is Tapas style place with a Mexican focus. You typically order several small plates... More

The Barrio was recommended by my brother-in-law so we headed there for their tacos. It was happy hour and we could order any of their tacos for a cheaper price. So we had the grilled skirt steak, chicken, pork belly and ahi tuna tacos. They were all excellent; the combination of fresh ingredients and creative sauces was outstanding! We enjoyed... 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
