The food wasn't amazing and the drinks were very high priced. With that combo we were not too impressed. The food was tasty but it wasn't what we were thinking or had in mind.

Great place to meet up for a bite and some solid drinks. If you like spicy food then they will not disappoint. legitimate "kick" to their dishes with nice twists on classic street food.

Everything was great! Just one mishap. Reservations were for 730 and we showed up at 720 and there was no record of my reservation at Bario. I showed my email confirmation and they found us a table right away. Great staff and friendly!

This was perfect right before going out for a night of dancing. Not too heavy, great service, and yummy food!! I would recommend their specialty drinks over anything "regular" from the bar-- my only tip:)

Tapas style eating. We ordered a few small plates and one larger entree. The gringo style taco was my favorite--hard shell with beef, iceberg, cheese, and hot sauce. The beef skewers, tequila shrimp, and enchilada were all very good. Everyone at table got a bite or two and seemed to be satisfied and full with that amount. The larger entree we ordered was the ahi tuna with quinoa and greens. The tuna was tender and cooked well. The barrio margaritas (s) was very tasty, not to sweet and full of tequila! My only complaint--the lighting. It was hard to read menu in the upstairs eating space, I saw a few people bring out their phone flashlight! Next time, (weather permitting) I will try the patio.

Less crowded inside
With warm weather, the Barrio patio is always packed but its possible to get reservations inside where it is a little quieter and the food is just as good. Service was also great inside.

Great waitress! Very good food and drink. Would go back again.

Great Lunch Combo!
Heard about their $10 lunch combo and had to check it out. It changes daily; we had two beer-battered Mahi tacos with a side of chips/salsa/guac. Wonderful! It was crowded and tables are on top of each other, but staff did a great job of keeping our glasses full.

Yummy tapas style Mexican food!
Perfect place to sit outside and enjoy a Margarita on a warm summer evening. Great food and friendly service!

My husband and I love drinking straight tequila and Barrio's tequila selection was amazing! We had a wonderful tequila "flight" and really good food. Our waitress was very nice and had great suggestions. I highly recommend the tres leche cake for dessert, it was incredible!

Friendly and efficient staff. We really enjoyed our time at Barrio Minneapolis!

We were in town for a girls weekend and this was a great restaurant to start our weekend off!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We tried several small plates. Everything tasted fresh, light, delicious. Some dishes were spicy, others mild. The margaritas were delicious, too. Can't beat the happy hour prices.

Great dinner, great drinks, great service. This will be a regular spot for us!

Went there for lunch and sat outside. The waitress knew the menu and made great recommendations. We had a tequila flight, which was fun, and several different tacos. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience.

This restaurant is unique from other mexican style restaurants I have been to. This has real authentic Mexican/Latin American food. The food was had great flavor. It serves Topas style which is small plates that you can mix and match to create a unique experience. Definiately recommend this restaurant to all who enjoy great Mexican food.

I'd never been to Barrio during lunch. I was a bit skeptical, but wanted to plan a nice outing with some co-workers. The weather was beautiful, the food was sooooo good! It was extremely busy and at times it was a bit hard for us to hear each other, but we were all impressed with the presentation and taste.

Great Downtown Bar/Restaurant
Great option to meet up with friends in a casual bar/restaurant downtown. Most menu items are listed as singles, so it is easy to order a few things and try multiple things on the menu rather than ordering one large entree, which is nice. Great apps to share as a table as well.

Great place for sm plates & drinks
We had a group of 5 planning to sit inside, but snagged a great table outside and it was perfect! Barrios' has an Excellent selection of tequilas and the food was wonderful. We sampled and shared the guacamole, chips & salsa, adobo chicken quesadillas, pork belly tacos, habenero chicken tamal, Creekstone Farms beef tenderloin and the crab empanadas. They were all a hit. My personal favorite were the pork belly tacos that I thought had a perfect blend of smokey flavors and crunchy textures with a little heat in there, too. Of course, we finished with some desserts. The tres leche cake and flourless chocolate cake were a wonderful way to cap off a fun evening at Barrios!
I would also say that the wait staff were very helpful and attentive.

Spot on Flavors
Besides excellent Margaritas, if you are a fan of the various renditions of Mexican food in the US, this is based on fresh ingredients, clear flavors, new twists in ingredients and many authentic touches thrown in. Good for drinks and munchies or a multi course dinner and points in-between.

Group Happy Hour
Went there with a group for happy hour and sat outside on the patio area. Had no trouble getting seats around 5:30pm and service was fast and friendly. Margaritas are excellent!

The food is always great and
The food is always great and so is the staff. My only not-so-positive comment is that you would expect that the lunch special for the day (battered shrimp tacos = 6 shrimp) would not take 25 minutes to be served during a business lunch hour.

Delicious as always! Love the $10 taco lunch special with homemade chips, guac and salsas.

Tasty food, super nice server
Our server was so helpful when picking food, even told my husband not to order what he wanted because it's not very good. We love that!

Nice for a quick business lunch
Convenient location for a quick lunch during the workday. Ample outdoor seating. We went at noon on Monday -- the place was only half full, so we had very prompt and attentive service. The food was delicious and they have reasonable prices.

Great tapas style. The roasted corn chowder is too die for! we ended up ordering too much food; but everything was great

Been here a bunch of times, and always happy with the food. Nice variety of items, served tapas style
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and drinks were outstanding and so was our waitress, but be prepared to drop a chunk of cash. It's spendy!
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Guac and margs!
Every time we are in Minneapolis we for sure make a stop here for guac and the specialty margaritas. The service is always friendly and prompt. The corn chowder is also outstanding. All the little details at barrio are always appreciated! Thank you!

Traditional Mexican - tailored
My new favorite downtown spot--can't believe I hadn't found this place sooner!
I love the ala carte style of menu! Our waiter was very helpful in helping me make a choice of taco and tostado with just the right amount of "heat". The Mahi Mahi taco and Carnitas taco were fantastic, and their signature tortilla chips (laced with cumin) are incredible--a perfect match with their perfect homemade guacamole and smoky, but not too spicy salsa. The service was superb, and the prices were very reasonable...
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Marvelous margaritas and more
Try the margarita with the hot pepper in it, on the rocks as the server suggested--mmmmm! Also very, very good: skewered shrimp, guacamole and chips, and the beet/arugula salad.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were visiting from out of town and found this via Open Table. It had great reviews so we decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised from the moment we walked in the door - great ambiance, outstanding service, delicious and inventive food, as well as an exciting cocktail menu! If I lived in Minneapolis I would go all the time, and I would absolutely recommend this place to a friend. Do not miss this restaurant (and don't miss the housemade guacamole)!
