Killed some time watching NFL game on Thursday Night, bet a few horses to show from Penn National and Charles Town. Beer prices were good.

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Great place to eat and drink on 5th ave. with a very good service, basically is a sport bar with a bet zone.
Excelente lugar para comer y beber viendo eventos deportivos sobre la quinta avenida y ademas tiene un zona de apuestas si es que les gusta este tipo de asuntos.

“Great nosh in an unexpected place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

When you see a sports bar which is usually flooded with soccer fans, you wouldn't expect to have the greatest food. Essentially just the tradional pub fare, right? Not the case of the Tequila Barrel. During my two weeks in Playa, I ate almost all of my breakfasts there and would frequently pop in for a beer and some munchies later in the day. A very central location in Playa makes it easy to find and with the great staff coupled with good food at a good price, it doesn't get much better than this

“Good Place to Snack and Watch the World go bye”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We liked the deals ie 5 beers in a bucket for 150 pesos or the same with 20 wings for 300 pesos and the buffalo wings were brilliant.
All the food is good but if you have enchiladas share one between 2 as they are enormous.

“Awesome place to people watch and drink!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We stayed at the RPDC but came here one night for something different. It's location is great right in the middle of 5th Ave. We went on a weeknight, and they had 2-1 shots of Tequilla, and 150 pesos buckets of beer. Cheap entertainment! The servers are very friendly and want you to have a good time. There is also a sports betting section in the back which is Air Conditioned and felt wonderful to cool off for a while, watch some TV and have a beer!
