Group of six met here for after work and decided to go with the small plates. The server was very helpful in choosing the plates. But knowing we would share them it was a bit disconcerting to have to cut up many of the items so folks could have a bite. We managed - and the dishes were quite tasty.... More

We ordered several items and about half the food came right out, however two items were prepared incorrectly, and my chicken taco did not arrived. I flagged our server down 3 times, and we even order more food, every time he said it was coming. After waiting over 30 minutes, we told him to cancel the rest of the food... More

Barrio is a good option if you are looking for a quick bite and drink before a show or game. The location on Nicollet does a nice job, but the next time you are waiting for your international or budget flight check out the Barrio at the Humphrey International Terminal (terminal 2). It is far superior and a much more... More

Had a patio table for our first visit on a warm Sunday evening. Started out good, but went quickly downhill. Service was lacking...never given plates, no silverware, empty water glasses, no offer for second drink, server unaware that one of our "small plates" never was delivered. And, they have the nerve to charge you $1.00 for more chips in addition... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. It was busy, so we sat at the bar. The bartenders were all friendly and personable, despite being crazy busy! The barrio margaritas were smooth and delicious, and the tacos were great as well. The tacos are ordered as a single item, so if you want more than one taco, you want... More

Went for a lunch on Sunday and sat outside. Service was prompt and helpful. Had the guacamole, tamales, shrimp tacos...all were quite good, but the guacamole was the standout.

If you visit this restaurant, please make sure you make a reservation. I had to wait over an hour to be seated without reservations. Food portion sizes weren't that great but food was tasty. The drinks are definitely worth checking out.

We were looking for a watering hole with food. Turns out most of the downtown bars had food but this one was recommended. Yay! I got the tamale and an enchilada. The food is all small plates with a limited number of full plate meals. The presentation and the food were both excellent - particularly the tamale which I ended... More

A very different take on Mexican food. Really good food along with good service. The appetizer Queso with Chorizo was one of the best I have had. Surely worth a try .

Small menu, good beer, excellent at what they make. The patio was great, the atmosphere was great. Service was slow, but we had nowhere to be anytime soon. The guacamole was excellent!
