My family was really impressed. People were not jammed packed there is room for comfort. The food very good and presentation is eyecatching. My husband liked the beer. The music played allowed the atmosphere you seek when dining out. Thanks for great service. We left a nice tip. 👏🏼
Went for a nice dinner with my husband. The food was not what we expected. The Wiatress was very slow, we kept looking for her. The tables were so close we could hear the other tables conversations. There were a lot of kids running around the tables yelling back and forth. If you have kids great... if you are looking to get away from your kids for the evening... I do not recommend. ........
Food was fantastic. I had the chicken tamale which was the best I've ever had. The waitress was great as well. I'm definitely going back soon.
Here for a friend's birthday. Us 4 had a great time. Our waitress made it even better by bringing a dessert for the birthday girl.
It was a busy evening and wait staff were still accommodating. Food, atmosphere, and quaint seating made for an enjoyable evening.
Was not impressed with the menu. The food lacks of Mexican flavor and believe me when I tell you I have eaten in all kinds of Mexican restaurants. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. at least for the food. The sangria was good .
Though the food was good we find that the place was too rowdy. They blasted the heater too so we felt gasping for air. Our server was alright though he had to cover for several tables on both sides of the restaurant so it took quite some time to get his attention.
First time there. Was a date night for me and my boyfriend and we saw online about the happy hour food and drinks and new we had to try it. We loved it. We will be coming back soon. Also our waitress Peggy was amazing hope we get her every time.
Food and service was good as usual. The receptionist however was rude, didn't greet herself, no hi or even a smile on her face when we arrived. She walked us over to our table and said "here you go" and walked away. Fortunately for the restaurant, I have been there before so I know the food and service is good but if I was a first timer, I wouldn't come back!
I appreciated the warm nachos and salsas while we waited for our food. I downloaded the app during my first visit and am glad I returned to redeem my offer - the food was much better the second time. We had the rajas tacos (potato ones) and the tostada nachos. I like my food spicy so we got the habanero salsa on the side - it was worth the extra charge. The interior is fun colored with high tops throughout and large spaces for seating. The restaurant can accommodate large parties well.
Even with reservations there was a 30+ minute wait. Other than that the server was amazing made sure to check foods for my dietary restrictions without an issue. Food was brought out promptly and the food was very good.
Great food and awesome drinks!
Great place to dine and great service. Food was received luke warm to cold. No worries our waiter took it back and manager came over immediately to inquire. Food came back out the same way. Food was removed from bill and still prepared hot orders to take home and food to eat there, chef came out to apologize. Shots were a great feature from the manager. Highly impressed how she handled this situation and her staff. We will be back and so will our guests who were there for the first time celebrating my wife's birthday. Food, service and ambiance was great! KUDOS
I had the Mahi mahi tacos and was not very impressed. My flour tortillas were not soft enough for my taste and the fish was too saturated with spices. Service was a little slow and my server a little sassy. I had the house margarita which was great and helped balance out my experience.
They didn’t have a table for us even though I made a reservation. Seems like they had a lack of staff as there were numerous tables available.
We had a grand time.The food was great and service was good
Love this place! Our new go to for girls Night! Love the tequila flights! All the apps were great! We tried new things too and didn’t disappoint! If you love tacos and tequila then you must try! Delish! We will be back!
Was craving Mexican food for my birthday and chose this restaurant for its ample space to accommodate a big family. Our waitress was great and so was the food, but it came out a bit slow. My biggest complaint is that the kitchen was not prepared for Sunday dinner. First they 86'ed shrimp and beef fajitas. Three out of our party of 9 then ordered the chicken fajitas, then were later told they 86'ed that too. How to do run out of meat for fajitas when it's used in all other menu offerings and is the most basic form of cooked meat? Tacos were good, though.
The room our table was in was chilly and out of the way. So out of the way the waiter forgot about us. Food was decent but not great. Not sure I will return.
Was not impressed with food, which lacked flavor. Did not like the high chair seating and service was average.
Really interesting and delicious food. I like that all the food has "classic" origins but also with a twist. They have many seafood options, I would recommend the fish tacos.
Great food, great service, and great atmosphere. Nos encantó, lo recomendamos
This was the first time I’d been here. Everyone greeted us, including the younger gentleman who was doing valet. Isaiah, our server, was great. He offered recommendations, and checked in with us frequently. The food was awesome. I thought it was going to be a TexMex, Americanized style of food, but it wasn’t. Everything was authentic! The empanadas and chicken tortilla soup were phenomenal, so was everything else we ordered. I’ll be back very soon.
Always such slow service, it’s a shame because the food is good
My family got together for dinner, we had just lost our mother a month ago and it has been very hectic, so it felt good to just sit relax and enjoy the food and company.
The server who is about 26 but looks like he is 12, had an outstanding attitude. Very knowledgeable, not pushy, but very accommodating. 10/10 would come again.
We've been to Barbakoa several times and enjoyed each visit. The food is tasty and serving sizes generous. I'm a fan of the Barbakoa margarita but have been trying some of their other options, so far all good.
I was blown away by how amazing my Mexican Cobb Salad was. It had all my favorite ingredients (and copious amounts of them), and it was the display of it was beautiful in itself! I also ordered one fish taco and it was very good, too! My husband was also impressed with his pork tacos. Given all the places to eat around Yorktown mall, this is probably one of the best I've had! It's a true gem in this area. I would highly recommend dining here!
This was our first time there at barbakoa restaurant, made a reservation on line so when we got there i was asked if i want to seat at the bar area, because they were to busy in the main dining room, i was looking forward to seat at d main dining to have a great experience at your restaurant, but it didn't happen, i will be back but not to seat at the bar area again, i hope
We have dined here four times in the last six months. Awesome food and service, fun atmosphere and their Sangria is AWESOME!
I have been to Barbakoa twice, and I love it. Food is good but only thing that bothered me the 2nd time was my steak and shrimp fajitas only had 4 shrimp in it. Other than that though food is very tasty. Have a good variety of drinks. The environment is energetic and servers are very nice. Overall good spot to eat.
I have to say I was pleasantly impressed and I’m definitely coming back !!
Amazing service and even more amazing food !!! Great value for price
We waited over an hour WITH a reservation. They did comp us a round of drinks but still. Unaccptable.
Waitress was great, but the kitchen was slow after appetizers.
We took four kids, ages 5-13 out for my husband’s birthday. It was easy to order a bunch of food and share among family members. The chicken tacos were too spicy for my 11-yr old, but littles liked the flautas and gobbled up all the rice from their siblings’ taco meals. Very fancy place with lots of date night guests. I probably wouldn’t take kids back just because it’s expensive for a family outing, but we loved it and the food was great, even my foodie husband was pleased.
Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated for a prearranged reservation. Wait staff was slow to attend to our table after we were seated and seemed rushed . Margaritas and drinks were great, food decent, and nice atmosphere.
Great service, nice variety of tacos and we enjoyed the tequila flight.
It was good; music was a bit loud halfway through our dinner and noticed we were having to shout to be heard.
