We stopped here during our day trip to Playa del Carmen. The atmosphere was fun and great for people watching. Nachos and drinks were great! worth a stop.

This is a must visit because, well -- come on -- you can bet on your favorite sports games! Being from Philadelphia, we bet on our Sixers (and won!) The bar is crowded and busy, but the drinks are decent and the wings are really tasty.

We started with margaritas which were excellent until we saw the price. Left shortly after with out eating! As a "sports" bar none of 3 waiters knew point spread for super bowl in 4 days time

While we have a sports book, we are more than a sports book. We are a bar, grill and sports betting, with the front dedicated to being a bar with a DJ. We don't burden the waitresses to know the point spreads of any sporting event; however it can easily be obtained by visiting our sports book in the back... More

They have a pole at the bar, so there is always crazy people who climb up! It´s kind of expensive for the area, but it was a nice experience. just to sit and talk while you do people seen. The food was very good

We have been coming to Playa for 7 years, it has always been our ritual to go to the Tequila Barrel and order wings and margs. The girls that have served us are fabulous and often we go for a quick lunch or drinks and snacks but I gotta say, it has become overrated. The management seems to just want... More

Stopped by during the day, I bet this place is jumping and buzzing of a night, food was very good, and reasonably priced as were the drinks, Staff exceptional.

First off, you could only get one tiny table for the eight of us unless we agreed to spend a certain dollar amount. Then when we got our bill, it was soooo expensive for the little we ordered. Service was great.

TequilaBarrel, Owner at Tequila Barrel, responded to this review

Yes, during high volume days and events, we have minimum consumption. If we don't, we get people who want to sit down, take up a table and only order one beer, while we have many people waiting for a table. We do try to accommodate every request of our customers but unfortunately during peak seasons it is very difficult. More

When visiting Playa, we have always stopped at Tequila Barrel for wings, Its a great place to people watch, eat great wings and have a cold beer. The staff was friendly and service was good. We'll be back.

While my wife was busy getting a tattoo I wandered down the 5th Ave strip in search of a place to sit and wait. I stopped in here because they had ashtrays on some of the tables and I wanted to have a cigar and a couple of beers while I tried to kill some time. It's an excellent spot... More

Went here to watch some sports games on few different afternoons in Playa. Loved the trash can nachos. Very attentive and friendly staff.
