Excellent food and service overall. Love the small plates. Love the tequila. They have many locations but love the St. Paul one the best for atmosphere and quality servers. Antonio was my server today at the bar and made great recommendations for food and drink. I highly recommend the Chips/Salsa - such fresh quacamole! Also the potatoe sopes and Black... More

The virgin mojito was very good but definitely not worth $10! When I asked the server she indicated that was the correct price. I was blown away! I have never been charged that much for a virgin drink!

The Mexican flavor is being overcome by "fusion" and the result is unexpected. And not good. I would not drive 15 miles to eat here (in the past I would).

You MUST have the guac if you come here. Guac affictionado's will appreciate how amazeballs it is. If you order the taco's they are a la carte so order all the types you want and mix and match. The service is great and they have interesting libations. Watching cal's? Get the skinny marg. Everything is made from scratch. I love... More

We brought a group of nine for a dinner birthday party with high expectations and hopes of a wonderful time. It seemed like the concept of primarily small plates served to order might be just the thing to share and relish, but we were not impressed. We waited for a while for the drinks, though they were not busy at... More

We were a party of 9, visiting the Twin Cities for parents weekend at a local college. Parking was very difficult so we were a bit late getting started. The waitstaff focuses on drinks, which are good, but on the small side, and expensive. We ordered several appetizers for the table including two orders of guacamole, but only one was... More

We checked out the Barrio in St. Paul after having dinner elsewhere. We were hoping to have an after dinner drink and dessert. They have limited dessert options, but decided on the Tres Leches Cake. It was large enough to share and tasty. The Barrio's version is different than I am used to for this cake, but still good. Our... More

We had the all you can eat Taco Bar with 2 different choices of meat and a variety of toppings and tortilla options from the crispy taco shell to regular corn or flour! The sauces to... More

Service was good although server made no offer to remove the price of the overly acidic black bean side dish that was presented to us as a substitute for the pinto dish side they ran out of. Way too much lime in the black beans. Chicken quesadilla was decent but not amazing. The tamale was an epic failure. Too doughy... More
