    Chef Omar and the kitchen team do an excellent job. All the tacos (even the vegan opinions) are delicious. The bar program is awesome and the selection of agave is amazing.

    Barrio Chopped salad with grilled chicken is delicious, moderately healthy and filling. Available in both a small and large portion. Also, the bar is full service!

    The new cocktail menu for summer 2012 is pure win. Come in on a Sunday when they're all six bucks and work your way through all you can...

    Can’t speak to the food as I didn’t have any but they have one of the best tequila and mezcal collections I’ve ever seen.

    The nachos are awesome! Pair with a couple tacos and your margarita of choice, and you’ll be set!

    Great tacos and a nice selection of agave based drinks! And it’s close to two great cocktail bars for an after dinner drink: Canon and Tavern Law ❤️

    Great bar for dining. Interesting spin on Mexican cuisine. I always visit Barrio when I'm in town, often more than once.

    Expensive braised pork bowl (over $13 via peach for a small container of 60% rice, 30% shredded pork, 10% veg & black beans) but very tender and flavorful so that makes up for it.

    The peach salad was so juicy and refreshing, corn on the cob was awesome, and the waiter we had was the best part. Such a nice guy

    The vegetable cazuela is the perfect way to sample almost everything vegetarian, and the service is great even when crowded.

    Grandly scaled, candle-bedecked locations on both sides of Lake Washington have a touch of corporate chill, but the tequila-focused bar program is on par with the best in town. Read more

    Michelada was just the right amount of spicy. And veggie tacos: Chorizo and Cauliflower - so tasty!

    Incredible brunch options! Chorizo is great... Chorizo bacon is even better. Try the blood orange mimosa!

    Have the prawn enchiladas! Seriously one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten! Get a bowl of chips for the sauce!

    The brunch menu was full of possibilities, but the French Toast was divine. A great date place.

    The vegan nachos are the best thing ever, date I say it, better than cheese nachos!

    Tamarind margaritas are really interesting. I recommend either taking the salt off the cup completely.

    Bland everything, minus flavor, plus fillers and not much else. “Habanero” is apple sauce. “Cascabel” is adobo packing sauce for chipotle peppers. Was great 12 years ago, less so now.

    This place has some great vegetarian options; try the nachos or enchiladas with smoked mushrooms.

    Features a wide selection of gourmet tacos such as pork shoulder with raisins and almonds. Pretty underappreciated for its tequila bar, which features 60 different tequilas, all half off on Mondays. Read more

    Brunch is delicious and you can usually find gift cards for the Heavy Restaurant group at Costco, which would save you about 10%.

    The food here is quite good, but won't be confused for authentic Mexican. The exception is their chilaquiles, which are rotated with different ingredients daily.
