Our favorite restaurants in Los Barriles. We get food to go nearly as often as we go out to eat there. Chili rellenos are spectacular. Guac and totopos are not to be missed. Beans, rice, fish—it’s all great.

Our first meal out in Los Barriles was Cafe Maria. We weren't sure what to expect but it turned out to be delicious and pretty vegan-friendly. There was a vegetarian burrito on the menu that could be made vegan but they had more options than...More

This place is well worth the effort to find it. Unlike most of the restaurants in Los Barilles, this restaurant is tucked into one of the side streets, instead of on the main (and very crowded) drag. There were eight of us, including three children....More

I couldn't say enough nice things about the restaurant of the food. This is a family run small restaurant, off the beaten path but well worth finding. I always go here for Chilequilles verde, with chicken. IT'S THE BEST. GREAT SERVICE, HAPPY PEOPLE!

Reading the reviews, we expected something out of the ordinary, but were very disappointed. No better than any chain restaurant in the U.S. My wife ordered tacos with fresh shrimp and was served tacos with very heavily breaded fried shrimp. Portions were average at best....More

We first visited Cafe Maria five years ago and I couldn't wait to try it again. Was it as good as I remembered I wondered? The answer is a definite YES! Their menu is huge and it's hard to decide, but both meals we had...More

Cafe Maria is off the main drag. We had to work a little bit to find it. And it is absolutely worth it! John had the special, Fajitas Mixto - a glorious combination of shrimp, chicken and beef fajitas. Don't expect the US version of...More
