Had a quick dinner while in town for a convention. Great tequila list, the tacos are ala cart so you can try several, and the chips were f-ing wonderful.

Barrio has the best margaritas I have ever had! Chips and guac were excellent as were the chicken quesadilla. Definitely have to visit Barrio whenever I'm in downtown Minneapolis!

Our group of 8 or so ate here during a conference. The service was good - attentive but not so frequent as to interrupt the conversation. The food was ok, nothing awful, but nothing that stood out either. I had tacos - chicken, fish, and pork belly. I thought the pork belly was the tastiest and would order again.

I've taken my family there a couple of times and even though they are not foodies, they know good food when they taste it. A simple menu of tacos with carnitas, chicken and shredded beef complement their margaritas to make for a satisfying meal. The guacamole is served in a molcajete and is delicious. For the Minnesotans who only like... More

Had dinner here with a colleague while staying at a local hotel. The guacamole was outstanding and could have made a meal out of just that. Had a couple cocktails that I thought were definitely worth the cost. Service was decent but we were seated at an awkward table in the front window looking out on street construction, unfortunate for... More

I went with a colleague and the first table was not face to face, so we asked to go upstairs. Table was unstable. Happy hour service was good and attentive with A LOT of good drink and beer options. Most of the tapas were good, although the fish taco was flavorless and doughy. We ordered seconds on some. Last call... More

We arrived late on a Monday night with very few options in this area of town open. It seems more like a bar than a restaurant , the staff was okay , the place was okay and the food was good. My plate cost $25. I felt I could have gone to a hole-in-the-wall Mexican food place and could have... More

The tacos are fresh and good - kinda pricy for what you get. The homemade corn tortilla chips and homemade mild medium and hot sauces were very good. Great atmosphere. Beautiful bar. A little slow but staff very nice.
