Reviews for El Barrio

This place is amazing. First time there, and I can see why it's always busy. The food is SO good and reasonably priced. Barrio chips and salsa were fresh and hot, couldn't stop eating them. I had the chicken enchiladas, with mole salsa (substituted for the green tomatillo it comes with). The mole sauce is perfect, rich and complex with a subtle spiciness. My friend had a quesadilla, also very filling and flavorful. The balance and creativity of the menu is so refreshing...read full review

Excellent Hispanic food at a reasonable price! The ambiance was fun. Service was wonderful. Parking was but tough especially during lunch time on a weekday. Definitely worth a visit!

This place should have a Michelin star in my opinion. The food has so many flavors and the service is top notch. I had the barbacoa quesadilla and it blew my mind. Just didn't get a posting worthy picture of it... The corn, chips, salsa, guacamole all fresh and a full mouth experience like no other Mexican food I've ever had.
