Great food, excellent value

The restaurant is ordinary to casual in appearance, but service is good, food is very good and the value is outstanding. I had the barbacoa beef bowl, all the trimmings, cup of tortilla soup, three home style chocolate chip cookies and a soft drink, all for $13. If I lived nearby, I would be back... read more

Excellent food. They catered a graduation party I attended. The food was fresh, full of flavor, and a healthy option. I enjoyed the pork and chicken options along with the different salsas.

Everything they prepare your meal with is displayed in front of you. It all looked VERY fresh and the flavors were amazing.

I've never had a bad meal here, everything's great & the staff is awesome. I recently read a negative review here about Barbacoas & I couldn't disagree more. Call it sticking up for the local little guy maybe, but this place is fantastic. If you want cheap food, go to the place with the arches or the with the bell.... More

We are local Spearfish residence and I have eaten here for the past several years since they have opened. We have watched their food quality decline and the prices go up. We no longer frequent this establishment since the last visit was so expensive. For burritos and for drinks was almost $50. It's only a burrito. Can't wait tell chipotle... More

I love Mexican/TexMex food and I'm kind of picky. I loved this place. Their sauces were amazing and the ingredients were fresh. I also liked how friendly the staff was.

This place is kind of a take on Qdoba Mexican Grill. The dining area is clean and the staff are all very friendly. The menu includes a selection of barbacoa (grilled shredded beef, chicken or pork) and a selection of salsas, cilantro & spanish rice different beans and other toppings to wrap into a huge burrito, burrito bowl, on chips...

Expensive for what it is. The cilantro rice was basically old crunchy rice with wilted cilantro...flavorless and gross. I've tried this place 3 times now and the quality of food served does not fit the price tag.

I liked the menu and choices for their burritos but when you have a place that makes it right in front of you they should make sure it is spotless. Some of what you see are crustified pans and old looking product.
