If you have grown weary of Riverwalk and El Mercado, drive out about 5 miles from downtown to this amazing authentic and historic Mexican restaurant. Family owned for longer than I know, the food is always amazing and the service is spectacular. You won't be...More

Consistently good food. Can be loud. Seating outside is nice but service can be slow out there. Very good tortillas and enchiladas.

This restaurant had a lot of memorabilia on the wall. A lot of pictures with food/ travel channel cooks. It seems at one point in time it was a landmark TexMex restaurant. We had dinner on a Monday night about 8:30 pm. They brought us,...More

What a disappointment. The beef was like a paste. The taco was mushy. The restrooms were pure filth. I wouldn't go back.More

Overall the food was pretty good, but the puffy tacos were very disappointing. They were not cooked enough to be crisp and fell apart the moment they were served. Then I had kind of soggy shards of masa with my taco salad (what my taco...More

It has been many years since I've been to Los Barrios, and it does not disappoint! Started with a frozen Sangria Swirl Margarita. Excellent! Wanted another, but refrained since I was driving. I ordered the Enchiladas Verdes and oh my, I love their tomatillo sauce!...More
