Mexican Foodie Paradise – This is Mexican unlike anything you have tried before. The 12 hour slow roasted pork was incredibly tender and flavorful. Other options feature duck, beef tenderloin and lobster. Each first time visitor must get an order of the housemade guacamole, made tableside. Wine recommendations are listed beside each dish and were very reasonably priced.
Desserts are excellent as well. The goats milk caramel filled churros with a side of vanilla bean ice cream is a solid choice.
AMAZING FOOD! – Simply Amazing - just very crowded! Try the desserts! and the Margaritas!
noisy, noisy, noisy – the food and service are great. the atmosphere is chaotic. we couldn't hear the music, or each other at our table without shouting. the menu features many exotic items . the appetizers are extremely small, very tasty, but pricey. tables are squashed together and if you suffer from claustrophobia, better avoid this place.
Everything I had heard it was – Amazing. I had heard many good things about this eatery but was delighted to find it was all true. Had the Pollo Poblano and loved every bite. Our server Scott was wonderful, attentive and knew every dish on the menu. The atmosphere was wonderful romantic and perfect for a date. Only caveat was the music in the super small bar/waiting area was a bit too loud for easy conversation. Other than that, I will return over and over.
Outstanding Regional Mexican – This restaurant was a pleasant surprise offering the best Mexican food that we have tasted. The spinach and cheese dip, duck and seafood enchilda were wonderful. The waitstaff were very helpful and attentive and helped us make great selections. If you want to try something exceptional this is the place for you.
Outstanding and Original – The variation of traditional Central Mexican dishes and upscale Cuisine equal a unique culinary experience. Our waitress was knowledgable, efficient and friendly, the bus boys practically ran, the duo performing Latin music added to the ambiance. Appetizers are huge, the seafood enchiladas so rich, the tamarind and chipolte on the duck unbelievable, and have the flan and pressed coffee to finish. The best "real" Mexican fare I have had in Phoenix.
The best Jerry! – If you are like me, someone who is sick and tired of eating at chain restaurants, then try something new and go to Barrio Cafe. Everyone at our table loved the food. I had chicken stuffed with pablano and it was the best chicken I have every had. As soon as I put it into my mouth my taste buds exploded in excitement. Everything that everyone ordered was out of this world.
The only complaint I had was the service was not the best in the world. Our waiter told us that they where short staffed and it was very evident. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience.
