Very similar to that chain of Mexican restaurants where you choose from a burrito, bowl or salad, then choose your meat, toppings, etc. However, I think that I like this local variety better. Excellent food (fresh, warm and good) with plenty of other options that the other place doesn't offer. Nice staff too that handled a busy crowd with expertise.... More

This place is amazing. They take pride in their Mexican food. It's a build your own meal joint but it is a great place for a filling burrito however you want it. Delicious!

Landed here for dinner after reading a few TripAdvisor reviews. Nice people / good food. My husband had a burrito, I had a rice bowl. We liked what we ordered. Endless combos -- which can be a pro or a con, depending on your eating style. Menu can be a bit overwhelming if you are a first-timer (and you're tired... More

Barbacoa's is a great local place for lunch or quick supper. Plenty of options with wraps, salads, and rice bowls. Order off the menu or add what you like. Gluten free options, vegetarian options, Mexican, Thai or jerk...your choice. The Green Chile burrito is really good but so is the sesame salad. Good sized portions. Soft drinks and beer available.... More

In Spearfish for business & this was my first South Dakota meal. was great. Came here for dinner. Friendly staff. I liked that it wasn't a chain. I ate here on a Monday & they had $5 meal specials. cool atmosphere & liked the outdoor seating.

On our way to Yellowstone and husband found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Definitely worth stopping at. Food was excellent, service was good, and prices were reasonable. Would definitely stop here again. Steak nachos were really good.

There are similar burrito / bowl type of joints in many towns, but this one really stands out. The menu is nice, the place smells great. Service if very friendly. We had two burritos and a bowl. Everything was good. Pork with Green Chile sauce was excellent. The Coriander shrimp were great. Blackened salmon was not blackened, but was otherwise... More

One of our favorite places in town. Think Chipotle and bring it to a Mom & Pop restaurant. The barbacoa beef burrito is my personal fave. Yum!

Quality of food was great and my grilled salmon rice bowl was delicious. The employees helping us were very nice. Portion sizes could be a little bigger- we had the chips and queso and didn't have enough chips to finish our little cup of queso.
