Wait staff very friendly and helpful with food selection. Tried the Pollo Poblano and Pescado Veracruz. Both dishes excellent and portion size plentiful. However had to give the pescado veracruz a slight edge. Have to park in back.

We had lunch at Barrio Cafe. The service was friendly and quick. The food was out quickly and was delicious. It is a creative twist. The guacamole has pomegranate seeds. I had a pablano pepper stuffed with potatoes and served with a spicy green sauce.

Came in solo, having heard great things. I was sat and forgotten. Waiting nearly a half hour to place my order. I was never checked on, never offered a drink refill. I understand servers don’t love single tables but I usually overcompensate to make up...More

It appears they don't on their website, but I'm sure since they take major credit cards, giving one, with the recommendation of Barrio... would get them there to try it out!
