I'm a relatively frequent visitor to Boise and this is one of my favorite places. I had an ahi tuna salad that was just amazing, and it's easy to get tuna wrong. The service and atmosphere is also great.

We enjoyed our visit to the Barbacoa Grill. It was large and noisy, but the ambiance was colorful and entertaining. The food was good and well presented, and the service was exceptional. We especially appreciated the hot rock with the steak.

We celebrated Valentine's Day at Barbacoa. It was a great experience. The hot rock beef is so good. They had flowers and really pulled out the red carpet to make sure it was a special evening.
