“Not That Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

There are too many other places to get great Mexican food. The food isn't that good and it is overpriced.

“Barrigas for good mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

I eat at several Mexican food cafes around town but this is definitely high up on my list. Their menu has so many choices. They offer both the usual items such as the combination plate but many of the regular food choices for Mexican restaurants have been updated so there are many different kinds of tacos and enchiladas, etc. Their shrimp tacos are delicious and my all time favorite, meatball soup xochitl is wonderful. There is something for everyone such as yummy green enchiladas for vegetarians or people who don't care of meat. Anyway, its a great food experience espeically for those of us who lose Mexican food. Don't miss it!

“a perfect Mexican food experience only found in el paso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

this place is truly a unique experience; the combination of flavor even in their simplest of dishes is very delicious; try the skirt steak with make your own tacos and creamy green chile. they also have what I consider the best margaritas in town. live mariachi on Friday nights is really nice .

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

We were referred by our hotel and arrived late afternoon. Not busy. We were seated and, although the waiter had problems with English, we were able to order both drinks and our meal. Salsa and chips arrived. Both unique and wonderful. Asked for the salsa ingredients and was given a cup of salsa and a bag of chips to take with us.. The food and the service (inspite of the language barrier) were excellent.

“Average semi-Mexican restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

We have eaten here twice. We have tried the Mexican entrees both times (they have a few entrees for other types of cuisine as well). Expect average food for an average price. The service has been excellent each time. Go on a Friday night to see the Mariachi band. It is a nice touch and our daughter really likes to see the band.
