Reviews for El Barrio

It's really nice restaurant with a warm environment that's friendly and easily accessible. The menu is not complicated or overdone and the food items were very delicious. They offer many types of hot sauce, but I'm not strong enough for the really hot stuff. I will definitely eat here again given the opportunity.

Excellent meal, worthy of the high ratings. Waitress, Ann Martin, made great suggestions. Queso Fundido dip was delicious and the Grilled Chorizo Meatloaf was very different but delicious. I always appreciate excellent sweet tea too. This observation won't matter to most folks but the cloth napkins are very soft and smelled pleasant. Most places they are so starched and pretty useless for absorbing anything. Enjoy!

Best restaurant experience I have had a long time. I ordered the el pastor tacos bomb af. All the flavors were perfectly paired, the pineapple went amazingly with the pork. The queso was perfect with the hint of lime. The service was top notch. My wife loved her quesadilla barbacoa was also extremely tasty. I can't state it enough how great this meal was.
