I will start with the food. I came after work for a snack and drink. I ordered the chips, and it came with three different dips. Salsa, queso, and guacamole. The queso had some type of spice sprinkled on it that that is all you...could taste. The margarita was the worst I ever tasted. But the service was terrible. My order was taken my drink and chips was brought to me and that was the last time I saw anyone. No one ever came back by to ask if I needed anything else. Once I flagged someone down to get the check I understood why. Their tip is figured into the price already. You have an option to leave more however you do not have to. I am not someone who needs a lot of attention from a waiter/waitress. But at least ask me one time if I needed anything else. I recommend skipping this place if you're looking for Mexican food because this place is not it.More

We just wanted to take a road trip Richmond Va. From Maryland. So we just plugged the restaurants near me and this place showed up. Parking is hard to find. Today is 16 Sept. 2023. @approximately 16:00. The blonde hair guy who sat us tried...to sit us next to the beverage dispensing station. He was hell bent on placing us in horrible seats. I think he got a thrill out of it. The place was wide open for seating., so it led me to believe a bias was at play with him. On the other side Gabriel our server was very nice and informative. Our food finally arrived after almost an hour. My wife’s fajitas were great, however the chicken enchiladas were horrible! The dough they rolled them in was thick and uncooked in the center and the outer shell was crunchy crust. Their is an automatic 20% gratuity added so the staff is on auto pilot! Buyer beware!More

I work at the mall and was trying to find something new for lunch. I ordered the queso to-go. It looked off when I got back to my work (other side of the mall) and thought perhaps it had congealed and simply needed to re-melt....I microwaved it, but it just didn't look like queso. It was $10.50 so I have been eating it. It tastes like some sort of paste flavored with Old El Paso taco seasoning and possibly cornstarch with a few bits of cheese. It's VILE.More

Hi Maureen, I'm sorry the queso didn't do it for you. We do make it with cheese, but the flavor you're describing definitely isn't what we're going for. If you have a minute to email a copy of your receipt to chesterfield@casadelbarcova.com and reference this...More

Terrible service. Was given my food and ignored the rest of the time while everyone else was asked how they were doing. But there is already a 20% service fee on your check. I am by all means not high maintenance don't expect anyone to...kiss my butt but didn't even get asked for a chip refill or water refill. Food was terrible anyways.More

Not the greatest. Lots of people waiting and lots of empty tables. Your tip is prepaid. Not sure the waitress word for 20% to bring out chips and salsa and 2 drinks. Chicken was fatty and not the greatest seasoning. Stay with your local Mexican...joint and have better foodMore

Food was good. Service was good once we were seated. Hostess could acknowledge that she at least see you standing there even if she is busy doing something else. She even had to go get help with something and ate still didn’t acknowledge us standing...there. The service after that was great. The area surrounding us was very nasty.More

Loved it! We have talked about trying but had lacked an opportunity until last weekend. Reservation was easy, service was terrific and food was delicious and served quickly. Also impressed with the decor. Beautiful and very comfortable. We will definitely be regulars!
