Outdoor seating probably the best thing about Barrio. The food was ok and offered no original twist. Even the tortilla chips we just ok - how does that happen?

Unique small plate servings of your favorite Mexican food. The chips and guacamole are awesome. Can be expensive but worth it. Order up several small plates and share it.
