Food was Great! Kind of noisy but okay! Great place to take our 2 grandkids. Service was okay mainly due to our waitress being kept busy by a lot of customers. Would definitely do it again!!!

Made reservations at 6pm. Seated at 6:30 after the group that arrived before us without reservations. Hostess argued with me that I reserved for a party of 5 not 4 and that’s why it took so long. I told her 4 when I checked in and showed her 4 on my Opentable confirmation. Was really annoying. She then complained that they had a party of 50 come in. Never saw a large party. Service was extremely slow. Didn’t receive our food until an hour after we ordered. Seemed like
there were only 2 wait staff on a busy Saturday
night. Our waiter was very nice but overwhelmed. The food was extremely good. I had the California burger. I asked for no
onions on my burger and got a stack of them. The restaurant is very loud so be prepared if you want to have a conversation with anyone at the table.
May give them a second chance:

Its so hard. The food is amazing and the staff is nice but the service SUCKS! This place could be so busy but the service is seriously one of the worst. Do not go if you don’t have much time.

We regularly go to Barrio after our trail runs on Saturday morning and we hold a bi weekly group run. The service has always be top notch and the food is always delicious. But of course the beer always keeps us coming back. Plus you get s bonus of seeing some pretty awesome planes as well.

We use Arizona Restaurant Week to scout out new restaurants. Since BBC was new to us, we decided to check it out. Service was great, food was great, staff was great. The only thing that was annoying was the fact that they were out of several things: fish for the advertised fish tacos, the advertised cheesecake, and vanilla ice cream for Brownie a la Mode, which was the ONE remaining dessert. The cheesecake....I totally understand. Lots of ingredients and it needs to be baked, cooled, then chilled. But when you have ONE dessert left to offer, how do you run out of a key part like vanilla ice cream? 😳 And not having fish for fish tacos? In ARIZONA? 😳 seriously? Send someone to the local grocery store! Poor planning! Or waiter was great, and was very apologetic.......but it certainly wasn’t HIS fault.

We visited for Restaurant Week. OMG ... Spinach dip app was GREAT. Homemade tortilla chips were over the top! Hubby said his fish tacos were WONDERFUL ... and I say the same about my Cal Burger (perfectly med rare! YES!!) ... no room for dessert, so we took the cheesecake home with us along with our half-eaten entrees. The cheesecake was not only generous, but creamy and sooooo delicious with the raspberry ale sauce!
We'll be back! It was very busy as there was a graduation party going on ... so maybe a little bit short on staff, maybe.
Dieing to go for breakfast some nice Saturday morning when we might catch some flights going out! :-)

Restaurant week tastings! Burger was very good. Spinach and artichoke dip was solid. Buffalo wings had the right flavor but if they had been thrown on the grill to crisp up more they would have been over the top fantastic. Cheesecake was pretty good but the brownie was just sad! Never serve a brownie sundae with a cold brownie 👎🏼

While they have a large selection of interesting brews....the flavors of them are very lacking.

Good night with friends, but there’s too many other amazing options for me to give this place another try

This was our first visit to Barrio Brewing Co. The menu has a nice selection and the prices are very reasonable. The food was good and our server, Ashley, was great. My main complaint was with the speed of service. It took us two long hours for this meal. The chips and salsa appetizer took forever to come out. The meals took forever to come out. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen, but the dining room was not busy at all on this Sunday night.

The food was okay, the wait time to be seated nonexistent, the waitress MIA (I still generously tipped 25%), the wait for our food to arrive was excessive, too... but, being able to watch the planes come and go and the beautiful mountains in the background coupled with the fact that we could eat peacefully knowing the airport was right there and we didn't have to worry about traffic made it all worthwhile. We arrived at 11:30 and didn't get out of there until 1:15. The tables were 75% empty. I'm not sure what the problem was.

Our waitress was not on point. It took too long for all of our service needs. We were given the bottom of the bag chip crumbs for our chips and salsa, and we were charged for an additional salsa when we asked if they can bring us a proper basket. We had to go to the bar twice for new glasses and water. We were offered a wet towel from the kitchen when we asked for wet naps. Yuck!

Food is good. Service is VERY slow. Tables are not supplied with usual utensils and condiments like salt, pepper, napkins, knives, forks, or spoons. You have to ask for them as well as the bill when you are ready to leave. It is a new establishment with what seems to be inexperienced waiters. So maybe it will get better as time goes passes.

THEY ALSO DO NOT SERVE BREAKFAST ON WEEKDAYS!!!

Kinda a hard to find location (especially in the dark) as it is tucked away in ASU East / Gateway airport in what looks like an industrial office space. But it backs up to the runway which makes it fun for watching planes. The food was great- the California burger was fantastic. We also ordered potato skins (good, yummy ranch) and the spinach artichoke dip (good but different than the typical taste). The service was very attentive and quick. We will be back for the burgers.

Lately service has been very slow. Only a couple of tables were occupied when we got there, and most looked like they had been there a while. It took about 25min+ to bring out a quesadilla and side of fries. Food was good, just wish they were a bit faster with the service.
