Barbacoa's has the best wraps and taco's in town. Large servings, tasty food and friendly staff. A similar style menu like the chain Q'Doba but so much more. Local Favorite!

Wanted to try something new as I was driving through the Black Hills so I chose this over a quick burger. The ingredients didn't taste all that fresh and there was something very "fast foody" about the tortilla. Tasted a little bit like Taco Bell to be honest. I wouldn't come back if I'm ever in Spearfish again.

I don't think its better than qdoba less than a few minutes away. I might even go to taco johns over this place. When I order nachos I like them to have enough queso on them so its not dry but they were really dry. Just put on a half a scoop more of that stuff!

A excellent place to eat that offers many choices. So much food I have to take some home for another meal. You select you toppings so get what you like.

If you are in the market for a huge burrito or wrap this is where you need to be. Fresh flavorful ingredients reasonable prices and huge portions built how you want it makes this a must try. Yum!

Barbacoa's consistently has a ton of food for your money with friendly, fast service. I recommend hitting it up before a big hike or even a light semi-south-of-the-border snack. They have specials going on so often that it's hard not to find a good deal.

This restaurant was similar to a Qdoba or Chipotle. The flavors were good and the food was fresh. The toppings are all extra, so take note of that.

The barbacoa was delicious. Huge burrito that my wife couldn't finish. Loved all salsa except for the corn relish. Daughter loved the delicious fudge brownie. Would choose over the new Qdoba in town any day.

I had tried Barbacoa's in Rapid years ago and wasn't impressed, so hadn't been back. I felt like Mexican-esque food, and there's limited options in the Northern Hills, so I decided to give Barbacoa's another chance. I am sure glad I did! The menu has expanded and there were plenty of options - from meat to non-meat options, to homemade... More

As others have said, this is a customize your food type of place, like Chipotle or Qdoba - but better and with a twist. They offer different flavors, so while you can make a burrito bowl, you can also have Thai flavors if that's your wish. Lots options for protein, and plenty for a vegetarian too. Everything was fresh and... More
