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.

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

We were worried about missing the big NBA game on Christmas Day during our vacation but no need to worry, they had lots of TVs and our game was on a couple including the big screen. Good deal on bucket of beer bottles and great service. We had burgers and nachos, both were fine. Fun couple hours, nice staff.

Awful expensive Mojitos.We went in as they seemed to have lots of staff and few visitors. That's because the staff wanted to chat and not serve. Walk by as their are much nicer bars on 5th

Nice bar / restaurant in the middle of playa del carmen's 5th avenue, they have a happening night scene and a busy lunch scene. Whether its drinks or food, stop off at this place during your stay.

I have been in Playa now for about 9 months and get to try out many of the bars and restaurants. Usually take a nice walk along 5ta Ave, then end up at Tequila Barrel for a couple of drinks. Sometimes get some food which has always been excellent. There are so many tourists walking on 5ta that it is... More

Open air bar/grill that opens onto 5th ave. My husband and I grabbed a chair and a snack. It's a great spot for people watching. Always fun happening on 5th. Good music and sports on the TV. Nice staff, Enjoyed!

From now on, the managers will be directly handling and making sure we meet any special requests for vegans, vegetarians or food allergies.
