I’m in town for business and craved tacos. Ordered 2 tacos, carnitas and steak to go. Both were extremely delicious. So delicious that I went back the next night for more!

Stopped in for happy hour. Bartender Maddie was great. We tried a couple of different cocktails that were all good. They offer a tequila flight during happy hour. We did not eat, but the food that was passing us by looked and smelled amazing.

My friend and I stopped by Barrio for the first time and ordered a couple drinks and some apps. Our server was so sweet (forgot her name!) and made excellent recommendations

We visited Barrio on a busy Saturday night before a concert. We made a reservation on Open Table and felt fortunate to get in, as most restaurants in the area were booked. The menu is mainly a small plate format. If you are not familiar...More
