Reviews for El Barrio

A true gem!Our server, Taylor, was incredible.From start to finish, service and food was five stars.I highly recommend trying the queso, rice, ceviche, and beef barbacoa quesadilla.High quality ingredients with lots of flavor!

Fabulous good quality food at reasonable prices! I loved the steak tacos! The tortillas were soft, fresh and tasted homemade. Great sauce, slaw and good quality sirloin steak. The meatloaf was also good! Beautiful job on presentation. The chicken and rice soup was hearty and a good portion size (for the smaller size). The plantain nachos were a great appetizer-loved the pulled pork.

Was visiting Alabama for 2 days and so happy I found this place! The food was perfect and fresh. So flavorful. My sister and I inquired if they had vegan options and Yes, they did! The bartender Stephen, was extremely helpful, professional and kind. In the 2 days we were in Alabama we ate here twice. Oh and their coffee is the Best! I highly highly recommend El Barrio!
