I think you could close your eyes and just point to something on the memo and it would be delicious. Their arepas should not be missed. I also recommend anything with plantains. We will be returning here many times in the near future.

This little restaurant keeps getting better! The menu has expanded since the last time I was here. It has something for everyone. Love that they serve alcohol now too! The Mojitos are wonderful! The chicken and steak skewers are incredible as was the HUGE ice cream dessert! Our service was outstanding. We enjoyed the live music. This is a place... More

Tried a flank steak entree instead of the usual Cuban sandwich. Excellent, along with an tasty bread, tomato, anchovy salad. The menu has something for everyone, including rice, bean, yucca, and plantain dishes with a variety of optional sweet to hot sauces. Nice new small bar...drinks were reasonable, a bit on the sweet side. Friendly staff. Patio was a nice... More

On our way back to Michigan from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame we stumbled across Barroco Grill. We loved our waitress and the fun atmosphere. The food was great and they even had a terrific guitar player.

This is a not to be missed destination for an excellent meal. We often order carry out but the ambience in the restaurant is also very enjoyable. The food is always fabulous as are the Mojito's and staff. Recently we brought carry out over to two different friends and they could not rave enough about the food and the fact... More

If you're a new customer, I'm sure you'll enjoy Barroco. But if you're a longtime customer like me, you'll notice a definite slow but steady decline. First of all, the prices have gone up. But I get it. I can understand the economics. They're more popular and well known since when I first started going there years ago. Demand goes... More

Have eaten here several times since it opened and have taken all my dining friends here too. We've never been disappointed. The atmosphere is funky and hip and the dips and sauces are wonderful. It's great that they make their arepas from scratch and I could make a whole meal out of them and that fantastic chicken, cheese, & corn... More

This fun and colorful restaurant serves good Latin food. (We choose to sit inside for the ambiance. There is an outdoor patio but it didn't seem as welcoming as the inside.) I would love to come back in the evening for drinks, gotta try their mojito, and see how the outdoor patio is with the lights on.

Unassuming but big on flavors and offers an authentic South American experience. I'd go back over and over again!

My girlfriend and I stopped in here for lunch on Saturday afternoon. We had the guacamole as an appetizer. This was the best guacamole I have ever had. I am pretty picky about guac because I can simply make a pretty good version, but this was better then mine! We both had ordered the arepas. I ordered the Mexicana Arepa... More
