Good place for a beer and a shot of tequila, and listening to some good music, before heading to a dance club.

Came here twice while on holiday, once for drinks and once for food. Service was good, food was really good. Portions were huge. I ordered the honey chicken fingers which I'm thinking about eating right now. Wish there was one in the UK

Visited here twice while in player del Carmen once just for drinks and the other for food, it's a kind of slightly American bar with really fit waitresses! It's gets a bit lively on a night with dancing on bars for a free shot of tequila. The foods lush! Burgers and probably the best we have had you can tell... More

We stopped in the Tequila Barrel a couple of times, walking from one end of 5th avenue to the other, this place was the point where we needed a drink!!! Service was a little slow! slow to order, slow for drinks to arrive and then even slower to get the bill! Overall nice and clean bar!

I have visited this bar 3 times while I've been un Playa Del Carmen. The waitresses are nice and cute as well. Service is good and the drinks are fairly priced. 1 out of the 3 nights I was here it got a little crazy inside the bar. If girls dance on the bar they get a free shot of... More

Our food was not fit for a dump bear. We ordered the cajun chicken and it was dry, the onions weren't shoestring and the drinks were very small compared to size you get at the other restaurants in the area. The waitress came to our table once while were eating and we had a hard time finding her except when... More

The food was pretty good, and the prices were no higher than similar restaurants on the block, but the combo specials (e.g. 2 beers and a burger) made it a bargain. The burgers are outstanding. They usually had a pretty good music video channel on, and they kept the volume at a reasonable level. That is, it wasn't blow-you-away loud... More

At first, we thought the music a bit loud, but it wasn't really loud and was in keeping with the ambience of the place. We only drank here a couple of times, but found the place friendly and good value (for 5th Avenue!). Sitting at one of the high tables overlooking the street is definitely the place to be. Many...
