My office friends and I love Barrio! A skip down Nicollet Mall - it is conveniently located. The food is fabulous and the Margarita's even better! The luncheon specials were priced reasonably and super delicious! One of my favorite places to go!

We were there on a Friday night--and it was plenty noisy, but my wife loved her Tuna Taco and I had two pork tacos--with a green chili sauce--and they were perfect.

On our walk from the train to Hollidazzle we like to stop on Nicollet at Barrio for the corn chowder. How’s that for a Holiday tradition? Good beer and tacos too. Cheers

Trendy spot full ala carte menu so watch how that adds up. Small portions but very tasty. Waitress was not freindly (at all) but efficient. Supporting staff was great, changing out plates, filling water etc. Should promote them!

Went in for dinner. Appetizers were the best. Guacamole was exceptionally good. Enchiladas were the best that I ever had. One of my best Mexican experiences.
