The staff was attentive and explained the menu well. We ordered a little bit of everything. Our quesadilla and wild mushroom empanadas were to die for. It's definitely the best food we've had in Minneapolis this season.
Great guacamole!! The best in town. Fresh chips and salsa.
My go-to spot for margaritas downtown. They have delicious chips, so I love happy hour here. Margaritas are top notch. Lots of delicious taco options. They're always good about accommodating large groups for happy hour. During the warmer months the patio area is always packed. It's a great place for a quick lunch or happy hour during the summer.
The food was yummy. I didn't really understand the taco bar situation. You order tacos by one each, no beans or rice. Each taco is about 5$ and they are those small corn tortillas. I got two. Normally at any other taco place I am full, went to taco Bell after lol. I got a margarita and it was yummy 10$ but that's normal priceing. Wouldn't go back because the food wasn't worth it to me
Food was great but the tacos are pricey for what you get. I understand the price for some of the proteins but for chicken, etc. just one taco is overpriced. We had some delicious tapas though and the ahi tuna taco was delicious.
Our server was personable, but everything took too long. Our drinks took at least 20 minutes. Then we were asked if we wanted food. The food didn't arrive until an hour after we had been seated -- even the guacamole, which would have been nice to have earlier. We told the server when we gave our drink order that we had to leave by a certain time, so at least he brought the check with our food, so we weren't late. They seem to have a bifurcated system, by which one person puts in the order, but someone else delivers it, so he was really surprised when our food hadn't come. The eats were tasty, but it was not a great dining experience. I'd go again, but never on a Saturday night.
Not all of our food came. They thought they were being nice by not charging us for the food that did not arrive,
Other than that - fabulous!
Amazing place - tequila offering is second to none
Best Margaritas in town, and best variety. Taco shells probably best I've had. Crispy and light. Overall great food, friendly service. Fun atmosphere, not fancy and a bit loud but worth it for the food and drinks.
We stopped in for apps and margs. Their guac is so yummy!
Barrios is always a delight. Great food. Great tequila. Great ambiance. Don't miss it!!
Amazing guacamole! Great, fast service, food was really good and the servers were nice and helpful. Would definitely eat here again.
Food was great. Server was inattentive.
Disappointing except servers helpful. I was also recorded on Open Table as a No Show when we did arrive, albeit a little late.
Was a fun place that I would go to again. The food was good and they had an extensive tequila menu. We had a great time!
Food was amazing.
Large portions for $5/each.
Servers came off a little bit like they wanted to rush us out. I didn’t like that but I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The sangria was super strong too.
The waitress had us wait over 20 minutes just to take our order , not ecstatic to try this place again anytime soon.
Food was good,but the waiter forgot to mention that the kitchen closes at certain time and we didn't have time to place our order. Took forever to get the alternate menu, water, silverware, and even our bill.
Love the atmosphere at Barrio! The food is delicious, everything I have tried has been so yummy!
Fun evening before ballet at the Cowles. We were too late with our res. to get into a quieter spot. Food was great, service also. Sat upstairs where it was probably a bit quieter.
Awesome as usual. Thank you
Had a good experience once the server showed up! Had to finally go and retrieve our own menus. Margaritas are small, but good. Homemade guacamole and chips are FABULOUS, as were the chicken and gringo tacos. We'll return.
Wonderful food with terrific flavors. The reservation we made beforehand was a godsend as there was an hour wait without it. The service was pretty good. The tapas are small, so if a person is hungry, best order two. Desserts were excellent as well.
We enjoyed all our food and the service was great. We didn’t like that every small bowl of chips was another $1.00. We are from Arizona and all Mexican restaurants refill your chip basket over and over for free.
We had a great time and will go again.
Went there for the first time for dinner and loved the food, service, margaritas and I especially liked that I could order smaller size options- great for people who don’t eat big meals or those who want to sample several things. I will be back!
My husband and I had a great time in Barrio. I loved my snapper ceviche and my hubby ordered the queso fundido with chorizo. My husband liked my meal better than his. Our food was delivered pretty quick (5 minutes or so after ordering). Drinks and dessert were fantastic. The Black Bonita (Blackberry Mojito) was super delish. After our dinner, we went to Dakota Jazz for a show. It was a fantastic evening.
I made reservations ahead of time and we were seated right by the door where it was cold and very, very cramped.
It was a date night for a special occasion and for an $80 dinner, we were not impressed by the flavors or the atmosphere. Most likely won’t go back.
Tasty food, excellent ingredients. Waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable.
We showed up really early for our reservation, they were really accommodating. The server made sure 2 check on us twice in the short time before happy hour was over to make sure what we had what we wanted. That made it easier to stay a little longer past happy hour when we were paying full price for other items.
Well constructed fresh food that is quality over quantity.. mex/Spanish flavors - well done!
Great service outstanding drinks, tacos small but tasty.
Bar top table uncomfortable and crowded in service traffic area for a twosome .
But food and service were better than expected. Great margaritas
My drink was amazing, the Pink Elephant. My friends and I shared a few small plates and each got our own taco. We were perfectly satisfied after our meal. We definitely got a lot for our money.
We loved the option to pick different tacos and the steak ones were out of this world! (Shrimp ones were alright). We also got fantastic margaritas and chips and salsa. The restaurant has a really cool vibe, but was a bit too loud. Overall good price and a fun time!
We were in town for a performance and started the evening with Barrio. It was a good choice. Nice atmosphere. Delicious salsa. Attentive and fun server.
I had a business lunch with three others at Barrio yesterday. We were able to make a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. The wait staff was very attentive without being overbearing. We each had something different to eat and everyone mentioned how good the food was.
I would highly recommend the tacos (carnitas were great). The corn chowder was phenomenal as well.
Service was ok - food and drinks came at odd intervals (drinks after apps, coffee after dessert, nothing ever served simultaneously between me and my wife. Upstairs was unbearably loud due to big group. Wait staff did attempt to help, but to no avail.
Had to ask for pop and water refills several times. Waitress staggered our food order so my friend had one taco, I had nothing. Then they brought out my dish and nothing for her when I was done they then brought her last dish.
The waitress also forgot to give us silverware . Will not be back.
My rating on the food does not reflect on the quality of the food as it was excellent, the rating reflects the serving sizes. Most Taco's were one per plate so we had to place multiple orders for food, kind of reminded me of take out orders.
They only offered a few items the=at were full size meals, it was still fun and we had a great time.
