At first I was skeptical about this place. People raved about how good it was and I had to try it. Well when I finally did try it, I wasn’t disappointed. They have a neat concept of creating your own taco, with over 2o ingredients and sauces to choose from! The possible combinations are endless. They also have a menu with of tacos that they have put together just in case you can’t think of a delicious combination yourself. They don’t have many other things on the menu other than tacos, but if you like chips they have a few different types of guacamole and queso to choose from to quench that palate. And there are many options to wash all this down with as far as margaritas are concerned. They have different kinds and they taste great!
Now as far as the quality of the food, I don’t believe the taste of the tacos were all quite there. I tried several different kinds, a chicken, steak, chorizo, and pulled pork. The chorizo was my favorite, especially in the double shell taco option they had on the menu called stoner. The steak was good as well, but I ordered the El Filadelfia that was on their menu already and it didn’t really impress me. I liked the one I made myself. But that’s what’s so good about this place, the ability for you to make your own. I would recommend making your taco with one of the double shell options, with the hard and soft shell. Also their queso is pretty good so add that to your taco. But they have so many other options so make what you think would interest you! Overall, they had some room to improve the taste of the tacos, with some like the pulled pork being a little bland. This prevented me from giving barrio a 4/5 or higher on the rating. But they were around $3 to $4 dollars each which made them a good value for the amount of food you get for it.
I think this place is worth the visit and has a fun atmosphere. Make sure you plan ahead as well as this place can get busy and if you have a large party, you may have to wait. But it’ll be worth the experience and it’s worth trying. It’s a good place to just go and grab a taco and margarita, and if you sit at the bar they have half off margaritas on Mondays!
