Seated promptly. Service was just enough that you didn’t feel pressured but were never waiting. Food and drinks were great and it’s a very cool atmosphere.
Great food and interesting cocktails. A wide variety as well. The queso fundito was incredible. They describe it has "tapas style" but the tapas are large and hard to split.
Great spot for our girls’ night out before our show at Pantages!
Barrio came highly recommended and it did not disappoint!
I came with four other people for a Sunday evening meal. We ate a variety of small plates: mushroom empanadas, the steak skewers, guacamole, grilled tequila shrimp, the sweet plantains. The only food that wasn’t exceptional was the chicken small plate that came with refried black beans - it was just kind of bland. Service was fine but not particularly special. Seating was awkward (two small tables wedged against a banquette so one person was sitting on the banquette and the other four were around the table). Overall the food was so good, however, that we kind of forgot about the awkward seating.
The food was good. Loved the chicken quesedillas however the place is little cramped and we were celebrating friend's birthday so we got a cake for her and were charged almost $3 per head to cut and eat our own cake. So we ended up paying more money to the restaurant than what the cake was worth for. A total ripoff I'd say.
It’s been a while since I’ve been here and it seems to have gone downhill. The guacamole was ok but not very flavorful. The corn chowder was basically corn and cream. The pork belly taco was ok but not much to write home about.
Barrios makes the best margaritas they are delicious not too sweet too sour not too strong just perfect!
Our waitress told us we could have any of the tacos in a crispy shell and that made all the difference they were delicious. We enjoyed the gringo taco the tempura crab taco and the Carnitas tacos.
So happy with our choice to dine here! We're come to Minneapolis at least once a year and had seen Barrio the last couple years bit hadn't yet tried it. It will now be a regular staple on our trips.
Barrio is a great atmosphere! Went here on a Sunday afternoon and the tacos were great! The service was a little slow despite the almost empty restaurant so that was a little frustrating, but on a lazy Sunday, I couldn't complain.
The tacos were good. We tried 6 different kinds of taco. It was nice that you ordered them per taco so you could mix it up. There were a couple we didn't love, but only based on personal taste; the food was quality. The atmosphere not so much for a sit down date type of dinner though.
Food was good, service was a bit slow. Seemed like there were a number of parties finishing up when we arrived, so perhaps we just hit the end of a surge. Food was great, as always at Barrio.
Lunch on Thursday is too loud. Couldn't hear anything my dining partner said. Excellent appearance and preparation of relatively bland over priced items. I would liken it to having a big mac (taco) on fine china. Will not return.
Fun atmosphere. The food was delicious. The service was very good.
The whole dining experience was wonderful! Our server, Nicole was an absolute gem! The food and drinks were to die for! My husband and I were overall very impressed!
The carnitas meat in my taco was dry. The pork belly taco was good but hot. The corn chowder was really good. Ordered the Macho Camacho margarita and would not care about ordering again.
The food here was simply delicious. This is among the best and most flavorful food I have ever eaten. We will definitely be back. From superb drinks to entrees to dessert - great, great, great!
Service was great, but Taco Bell has better Mexican food.
Andrew I am soo sorry you had a bad dining experience with us. We try and maintain an awesome standard in regards to both food and service. Thank you for the positive review regarding service. We will continue to push ourselves when it comes to food excellence. Thank you for responding, we hope you come back to visit us once again, Brian T. Williams AGM
Very good Mexican street food in a fun bar ambiance.
Barrio is always a great spot for their $10 lunch special. It’s such a good deal for the quantity and quality!! We sat outside and had amazing service and were in and out in under 45 minutes.
I love Barrio. Their food is so good. I would highly recommend.
The only minor complaint is that it took a really long time to have dinner. We were there for about 2 hours by the time all of our food came. We were in good company though so it wasn’t a huge deal. Otherwise it was great!!
Meeting friends for dinner before going to a concert at the Dakota.
It was only ok. We have had better food and experience at other Barrio locations.
Great happy hour!
Amazing service and the host was super smiley and cheerful! Had our table ready and no wait to be seated and great location looking onto the mall. Food was unique and amazing flavors, not your typical tacos.
I love the Barrio lunch special! Its always amazing and the service is fast.
Service was very slow. Granted, they were busy, but our items came out sporadically and with many minutes in between. It didn’t feel like a satisfying experience with the missed timing and long waits. I’m not impatient, but this was just “off” for us.
Loved it! The specific table I requested was ready and waiting for us 45 minutes early from our reservation time. Service was great. Food was delicious as always and our server was very courteous and friendly!
We love Barrio!
Great gluten free option. Margaritas were fabulous. Loved the atmosphere.
Delicious food and great courteous service! Really enjoyed the atmosphere!
Great playlist! Plates are shareable and tasty.
First time there and I really liked it. Fair prices.
Our food came out cold
Great food and drinks as always. Fun atmosphere. Our server was just not super friendly and forgot part of our order.
All the servers are amazing and great food! The food comes out when it's done so I reccomend ordering things to share!
Barrio on Nicollet Mall is a good place for happy hour. Their regular margaritas are pretty good and the rest of the menu is tasty. We had the carnitas tacos, which were filled to bursting. Wife had the elote, which she liked. We had a premium margarita along with dessert. The tres leche cake was huge and a nice finish to the spiciness.
Bad service, our dinner came before our apps, dinner for everyone came out at all different times, we needed more chips to eat our Salsa that we payed $4 for the salsa with a small thing of chips, we had to pay $1 for more chips and it took 20 minutes to get them and by the time we left. Waitress and food runners were only nice to us when we were leaving and got handed our checks since they knew it was tip time. Not to mention it was so hot and uncomfortable in the restaurant. Don’t think I will be coming back!
Awesome experience. Went for the $10 lunch special. Our waitress was super efficient and we had our chips and salsa in under 5 minutes and tacos in under 10.
We asked for some modifications to our meal, which there were no issues with and our waitress double checked to make sure our order came out correctly.
Overall, the value of the lunch special is great and our service was on point!
