This place has good food n drinks staff are very friendly and helpful with any item on menu.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! It was such an amazing experience eating here. The food is so fresh as well as the drinks. The chips, guacamole, salsa to the margarita flight to the tacos to the coconut flan. I mean WOW! You will not be disappointed!
I asked for over easy eggs and hard eggs back. The food and serves seemed to have been better in the past.
Derek was excellent! very informative, cheerful and punctual
Quick and delicious
Had a fantastic dinner out and felt very safe with their outdoor setup. The tacos and margaritas were delicious!
My husband’s taco plate was delicious. I’ve got a Salad that was way overdressed ,very soggy unfortunately. The waiter took care of it. Overall a nice evening.
Great food, fun atmosphere, and Kyle was a gem. Thanks!
Been here 3 times in the past month. Exactly what I want every time.
Food was not good and service was awful too. Definitely not coming back .
We waited way too long for us to get our food. It wasn’t busy it was just that our waiter must have known one of the people dining there because he was talking to him for about 20 minutes straight without checking on our food or other tables. When the waiter finally stopped talking and checked on our food they brought it right out. Who knows how long the food was just sitting there. He tried to make up for it with a free round of drinks but definitely poor service.
Had reservations and didn’t sit for 20 minutes because they were short staffed. Ok that’s fine. But then sit down 15 minutes later we got our waiter and we were able to order drinks. My sprite came in a dirty alcohol glass. It tasted like alcohol still with pulp from the previous drink. Absolutely gross. We then got our food. It was soooo gross. I am not a picky eater but it was disgusting. My kids food was messed up my order was wrong. From the time we sat down to when we got our food was 90 minutes. We only had 10 minutes to try to eat It and rush to the plane. Never will return.
Great food. Never disappoints. Drinks are always on point.
Great food & great service
Such amazing food !!! We had the best dinner and margaritas!!! Loved the outdoor dining and ambiance !
Barrio Star never disappoints! The tacos are awesome and I was really surprised by the potato tacos! The blackberry jalapeño margaritas are amazing!
The tacos were so good with the homemade corn tortillas. Tacos were a fusion of Mexican with some Asian influence. Margaritas were also tasty.
Perfect during these Covid times. Very clean and delicious food!
This was my first time eating here. I had always heard how good it was but it was even better than I expected. The Brazil bowl and salmon tacos were the best. Nothing like homemade tortillas. Kyle was the bees knees.
I am never disappointed in Barrio Star. Great selection of tequila and service is always on point. Patio seating wraps around and it’s so beautiful outside right now! Love the guacamole and cucumber starter.
Enjoyed the drinks and food. The Barrio bowl was amazing. The ceviche is good, different taste with lots of lime, but good. The margarita flight is a definite!
The atmosphere is great and the waiter was very attentive. The margaritas were delicious and food was good.
Good veggie options
absolutely despised our server. Did not lift a finger but was constantly trying to shove shots down our throats. Loved the older gentleman that was clearing our table. The only reason I’d ever go back was for him.
The food was horrible.
Hard to find good Mexican food in a “sit down” service restaurant. Finally found it! Margaritas are made fresh and amazing unique combinations.
I just love their tacos. I don't order anything else because I can get that elsewhere. I had their combo plate of a shrimp, salmon and mahi mahi tacos. The quality of the fish is top notch and each one comes with its own unique salsa. The flavors are superb. On top of that, the prople who serve you are warm and friendly. Favorite tacos in San Diego if you like them with a light gourmet touch.
Great service from Keith. Sat down extremely quickly and the food was amazing as always.
One of my favorite, regular spots! We hit up Barrio Star every time we go to Balboa Park! Amazing margaritas! We love the chips and salsa, the cucumber app and the steak tacos. My 7 year old ends up eating even more then I do which is rare!
Wonderful as always !! Tacos and margaritas are fabulous !!
Excellent service, excellent steak tacos and chill environment.
The server was amazing!! He kept us entertained all day! Food was great. It was fun just sitting out on the deck and enjoying the beautiful day!! Thank you
Great margaritas! Very friendly staff. The surf and turf bowl was very good
Such a great surprise. I have driven by this place for years and finally went.
They are really making lemonade out of lemons. Margaritas are scrumptious, service is fantastic and food is more than you can eat. Super fresh and healthy mexican food. Will be back very soon
Delicious food and drinks - they now have a out door patio area to dine. Great service!
Food is great, as always. Staff is awesome, including the bus staff. New outdoor seating is excellent and well spaced.
Host and server were great. The outdoor seating is relaxing. The food was amazing.
First our water glasses were DIRTY, on the 2nd glass of water it was the same. Our appetizer came out cold then as well when our food was brought it was COLD!! Service was undeniably terrible. Between forgetting items to forgetting our food I’m unsure what was worse. We had a Groupon and just so happens we were charged an automatic 20% gratuity by no means was warranted or deserved. Will not revisit or recommend!!! Our server Michael was forgetful and the bus man was extremely rude and didn’t acknowledge or answer any questions! It wasn’t even extremely busy for any of the inconsistencies of our visit.
Service was fantastic by Michael. Don't miss Taco Tuesdays.....LOTS of TACOS to choose from. I'm going to be going back :)
The potato and fish tacos are so fresh and delicious as is the guacamole. The tortilla chips are sprinkled with seasoning and so crisp & tasty.
Ordered a pitcher of classic margaritas, so refreshing on a warm evening. It was enough for 3 people to have 2 1/2 glasses each , a bargain especially on Taco Tuesday’s!
