Usually not packed but busy. Authentic mexican food but to american tastes. Portions are a plenty and you will not go away hungry. Service staff is extremely polite and helpful. one of our favorite places to eat. I love the taco salad.

We have tried many Mexican restaurants in the region and by far this is the best one. The food is delicious and the servers are very friendly. I highly recommend it.

I went with 2 audult family members in late afternoon. There weren't many people there. We placed drink and food orders, nothing special, standard plates of enchiladas and tamales. Mind you, we are 3 African Americans. We wait, and maybe 10 minutes later a party...of 4 white people came in, sat in the booth behind us. Their food orders came while we still did not have ours. As sorely tempted as I was to leave without paying for drinks, I did and left. Beware, if you are African American, steer clear of this place. They obviously don't need or want the business. P.S. There's a much better place to get enchiladas that's only 10 minutes away from this place...La Fuenta. It's well worth the drive.More

You need to learn to be more patient, the people that you says arrived after you arrived 3 minutes later, they ordered water to drink and a combination of beef tacos, this meal is ready and the tacos are ready in no more than 5...More

I was there at noon today for lunch. There were only two customers beside myself. I ordered the 3 taco lunch special. The shells were soggy and the ground beef tasted like it was 40 percent fat. I could only eat one of the tacos....I didn't complain as I know better than that. I have worked in food service. If I go again, I will try the chicken.More

I am sorry for the bad experience in our restaurant, the meat that we use is 89 -11 and not 40-60 as you indicate it. If you like to give us another opportunity just ask for the manager and you will have a free lunch....More

What a nice surprise this place! I had shrimp tacos, Mom had a grilled chicken salad. Everything was fresh, tasty, huge portions. Pricing very reasonable. Will definitely come back if in the area again.

Great place to eat. Good mexican meals with large variety! Reasonably priced, too. Located in quiet Greenwood , Missouri down Highway 150 East of the City Hall. Plenty parking and good service.

I love the authentic Mexican food. The staff is friendly and efficient. The restaurant is just east of downtown Greenwood which is a quiet get away place.

It was just average to us. The cheese dip was good. All the servings were to big. We wasted alot of food. We had by to ask for refills and had to flag down our server to ever get our check. We were there an...hour and a half.More

In a quick glance over the previous reviews have been particularly effusive in their praise for Barriga's. Granted...it is probably the best Mexican place in Greenwood. Granted...it's probably the only Mexican place in Greenwood, but let's move past that. Barriga's is ok. I gave it...four green dots because it's better than average. On to the details. Bonus points to them for making frozen margaritas by hand, in a blender. At most Mexican places, they use a slurpy machine and put in different contents to save on labor costs. While I noticed the bartender/waitress sampling the last drop of tequila from the shotglass (pretty sure this is against health codes), I won't fault her for that because who doesn't like a drop of tequila!? Now, anytime I find a place that serves Queso Fundido I am obligated to try it. Theirs was a verrry cheap imitation. As you can tell from my picture, the first thing you notice is that it's really runny. Not cool. Queso Fundido is supposed to be made with Oaxaca cheese, or Monterrey Jack, or some actual cheese. This was very much a cheese sauce (runny) with chorizo added. They get points for making sure the chorizo was drained and patted down with a paper towel, because it can be greasy. I've been eating QF since I was 17 and this was the worst I've ever had. Tacos! Well done, Barriga's! Two ground beef crispy tacos were top notch. Two thumbs up! Taco salad - wife loved it! Very tasty. Miscellaneous factors - price wise, Barriga's is less expensive than most. Salsa was meh and chips were nothing special. To be one of my favorite places, you need to be strong in one category or the other. Chips were obviously from a bag and had touched nothing more than a heat lamp. Would not hold salt. Salsa was just bland, with no distinguishable flavors. Are we coming back? Yes. Will we come on taco tuesday when tacos are a buck? YOU BET!!More
