On Saturdays, El Barrio serves brunch, rather than lunch. The place was packed! Since I was solo that day, I sat at the bar for full menu service. I chose their riff on Shrimp and Grits. The dish had four large shrimp atop a bed of sautéed, roasted peppers and zucchini. It also had Pico de gallo and crema. I wasn't sure I would like the veggies on shrimp and grits, but it was delicious! Full of flavor and just the right amount of spicy.
My only negatives are about the bar seating -- the barstools are really rickety and wobbly! There's also no place for a purse, so you end up trying to balance on the wobbly barstool with your purse hanging on your knee. Despite the barstools, I do recommend El Barrio for its yummy food!
