This review is based on our second trip to Barrio in St. Paul. We decided to call it quits at work around 2:00 in the afternoon. We met at Barrio so we had both of our cars. Parking can be tough, but luckily, we both managed to find spots on the street alongside Mears Park. From 2:00 - 6:00, we... More

On a Saturday afternoon, ten of us "crawled" through St. Paul, sampling appetizers. Each couple selects a restaurant and they order and purchased the apps at that stop. Good way to spend the day. The Barrio had great apps! Staff was just okay...they could have enhanced our experience, but ... Easy to pull together tables for a big group.

I enjoy coming to Barrio for lunch. I usually get the taco buffet, which is around $10. They also make a mean Cubano sandwich. The buffet has hard shell and soft shell tacos with about every topping you can imagine. Filler is usually ground beef and and shredded pork, beef or chicken depending on the day. Black beans as well... More

Barrio has become a favorite for my family. Small plates of authentic extremely high quality food. Vast Tequila selection if you are into that. Great service. The food is not your typical cheese coated "burrito bomb" but healthy and reasonably priced. Only downfall...parking is street only and Saint Paul tags and tows so be careful.

We really enjoyed our visit here. It was warm, unique, and inviting and because it was a beautiful warm day they had the front of the building open for a beautiful open air feel. It is located across the street from Mears Park and is going to be a fun place to go in the summer and just enjoy the... More

So they gave us the late night menu(?) which were limited tapas. The flavor of the carnitas was delicious and so was the made to order guac. I thought for 1... More

Great tequila drinks. Of course the margarita is good but give the pink elephant a try. Their guacamole is good and enough for the whole table. My husband I I love their tacos.

Went to Barrio on a Saturday evening with a group of 7 friends. The restaurant was virtually empty upon our arrival at 6:00 pm. The hostess wanted to split our group up as she didn't want to "overload" the waitress. After letting it be known that splitting us up was unacceptable and having to wait close to 15 minutes while...
