Went here for my birthday after doing a ton of research and was amazed. Guac is very tasty, my group got a variety of tequila and was very impressed with the setup and flavors. Have been back for their happy hour. Pork sliders are super

Decided to check this place out on a Friday around 6PM. It was a nice day, so many folks were in the front patio area and at the tables next to the windows. We made do with a table closer to the kitchen.

First up, the guacamole.

From the owners of Purple Cafe & Wine Bar comes a mexican influenced restaurant on Capitol hill. Lit with candles, the wood design of this restaurant creates a feeling of cozy dining and city modern elegance. I personally love their

When I say expensive, I mean over priced. I ordered 3 tacos thinking 3 tacos for 12 bucks... that should fill me up. These little ass tacos were a lot smaller than what one would expect for the price. Sure.. I know tacos off the truck, or

Everyone has there opinion about restaurants. I had no idea this was a mexican restaurant. It was delicious, hip, very cool decor. Being a little dark in the restaurant and being lit by candles make it unusual and memorable. I

We ate at Barrio last night and had exceptional service. However, the ambiance and lighting were totally off. When we got there the hostess tried to seat us in a booth that was so dark we would have never been able to see our food.

Barrio is what I would call "nuevo Latino" -- a twist on Mexican. The food here is solid and it's a hip atmosphere. The wall of candles is kind of enchanting at night. They do new-fangled things like pumpkin hummous and wild salmon ceviche but also Mexican stand-bys like tacos al pastor and pozole. Tacos are great, try the egg and chorizo ones. Cocktails are top notch -- and they even have micheladas (beer bloody marys). Service is great - one time, my server even pulled a splinter out of my friend's hand!

$5 margaritas were hand-shaken, strong generous pours of tequila and agave. \r
Very chic little 2-bite $2 tacos were delicious = we sampled all of them, and thought the best was Drunken Beans, followed by the chicken. The pork and chorizo

While the restaurant has a great looking interior, it was cold. The food was not the best I have had. The portions were incredibly small and over priced for the quality. The Taco's, while sounded good, did not have tender meat, and I had

The food was fantastic, service was very good. The ala carte tacos were to die for. Salmon Cevice was delish and well done. Main dishes were both very well done. The only blemish were so-so desserts, but overall the meal was very good
