Barrio is a great place to head in downtown St. Paul. Cool interior and good menu. We really like the small plates so you can get a sampling of lots of different stuff. The drink menu is great and the tequilas are tasty.

The fact that there were very few diners at lunch should have been a clue. Add to that the bucket placed on the floor next to our booth to catch water dripping from who knows where gave a bad first impression.

The service, however, was quite congenial if a little unpolished.

The food was not as well prepared as that at the Edina and downtown Minneapolis locations and seemed pricey for the quantity and quality.

Fortunately we were dining with good friends and had a great time despite the not so stellar restaurant.

Wow- this place was delicious. I liked the atmosphere. Staff was knowledgable and even suggested that I order in "rounds" as some people over/under order. Items come just like they are on menu- taco is singular- again, order in rounds because it is deceiving. I had salsa and chips to start- delicious. Chips are salty and crunchy and delicious. I then tried the Adobo grilled chicken taco and thought it was one of the best tacos I've ever had.

Only disappointed that I couldn't try more because I was stuffed. Will be coming back for sure before heading back home.

My girlfriend and I were visiting the area for a weekend get away. Being from a small town we wanted to try something different, the hotel recommended Barrio. Smaller portions and good prices make it easy to try multiple items on the menu (including tequila). Staff was extremely friendly and helpful to two "newbies". The food was outstanding and trying differently aged tequila was a great experience. Highly recommended for a couples night out or even a group of friends.

My colleagues and I have visited this bar a few times for our informal evening meetings as well as after a board meeting in the neighborhood.
The staff is very helpful with the menu choices and the prices are decent.
I frankly wish there were more places like this in St. Paul after hours.
