Small plates for the most part. Think great appetizers that are simply fantastic. Drink menu is extensive. A little pricey but the food and drinks are very good. The place has a great feel & atmosphere. Give Barrio a try. You'll like it

We went to Barrio with another couple. Drinks were good, and a fun if noisy atmosphere. Each couple ordered two of the small plates and, along with a basket of chips and dip, it was an adequate meal. If you have a big hunger, however, you could rack up quite a bill.

We went on a Friday night, and man was it packed and loud! My wife ordered steak tacos, and I asked for something free hand vegan, and it was pretty nice too. But the highlight was the nacho board, which was basically a basket of corn chips and three sensational salsa's. Amongst the best I ever had! We'll be back... More

Chips and salsa were good, the habanero can be very spicy if you have a Midwest palate. The verde was very good. Corn chowder soup was excellent had had a great blend of creaminess, fresh sweet corn and queso fresco, highly recommend this dish. The pork belly taco was very good, nice savory seasoned pork belly topped with the habanero... More

My son and I ate supper here before the basketball game. We were lucky to grab the last table and were tight for time. No worries as we ordered tacos, tostadas and tamals off of the nightly specials menu. All were delicious. We also ordered the guacamole with the chips and that too was really tasty. All around good tapas... More

My wife and I were in Minneapolis for a short trip from Chicago and were so happy we stumbled on Barrio. The food was solid, the drinks were great, and the atmosphere was really cool.

We stopped in after a concert for apps and drinks. The tacos are amazing, as is the guacamole. Love the selection of small plate tacos, so much flavor! Excellent margaritas as well! Friendly and attentive service.

The food came out really quickly and was delicious. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. Everything was very fresh and flavorful. The margaritas were good and the bartenders were great. It was very busy so we sat at the bar. If you are planning to go with a group be sure to make a reservation. It fills up!
