I thoroughly enjoyed the chile relleno dinner and my husband loved his three fish tacos. The house Margarita was excellent. The chile relleno plate was large enough that by adding some homemade fajitas, we had enough for another dinner for two. The waiter was super busy but did an excellent job of taking care of us. This restaurant is very convenient if you are going to do something in Balboa Park.
Enjoyed our lunch, we had the taco combination and the Barrio bowl. Very fun afternoon!
Open air Mexican restaurant with issues. Vinyl bench seat was threadbare, chicken bowl was served luke-cold, and the chocolate chipotle cake was still being made at 1:30PM and hence unavailable for lunch service. The "power rice" in the bowl is a crunchy rice/quinoa flavorless mix and the frijoles and kale do not elevate it. That said, the chips and salsa were good, as was the pineapple mint fresqua...but that's the only flavor fresqua they have. With so many good Mexican restaurants elsewhere I would not recommend.
Awesome service, great food and consistently good.
Some of the best Mexican food in the county, and definitely one of the best margaritas. We come here several times a year and its always great.
Food and service have regressed since my last visit a year ago. Had lunch 6/5. Server was distracted, disinterested. Food plentiful but much heavier than previous visits.
Third time trying over the years and just not good. Food, service and interior was dirty. Dunno how they are still in business.
Friends from out of town
Cute place. Very nice and energetic waiter. Chile rel Leno’s was delicious but as disappointed it had very little cheese. The torta was big and delicious. All very good but nothing outstanding.
Barrio Star is always a favorite for any fun, casual occasion. The food is always great and so is the service!
Good is amazing! Great chips and salsa, cucumbers, Brazil bowl! Great people! Kyle is awesome! Great vibe there!
A little bummed they charge for chips and salsa when most mexican restaurants include this. After agreeing to pay for them I must say the $3 was worth it. The chips were awesome and so was the salsa which they gladly refilled for us. I ordered the spicy chicken tacos and they were also VERY good! Overall was very pleased with the food quality and value. In full disclosure we used the Passport Card and got buy one get one entree free. We will be back because of this and because the food was actually really good.
Excellent service and good food!
Came in on Cinco de Mayo and got right in which was nice. A few of us ate off of the brunch menu and not a complaint from anyone! They even made a special bean and cheese burrito for my picky 9 year old. Margaritas were some of the best we’ve had. So glad we discovered this little gem!
Best Chile relleno in town hands down!!! Looking forward to the next time .
Food was cold, tasted okay, energy was lackluster. I had heard great things about it before but won’t be returning because of the quality of the food. It was a prebirthday dinner out but won’t be returning.
Service was slow only one waiter and the food order was wrong, food was not good either
Great food and wonderful staff!
We went to Barrio Star for lunch on a Saturday. The food was great, but the service was very slow. We had to wait a long time for our food to be delivered. Perhaps they were understaffed in the kitchen.
Great blood orange margs!!
It's not exactly your typical Mexican restaurant. The food is very good but a little different flair to it.
The long communal tables are ok, just glad it wasn't super busy when we were there so we had space between our party and the one that arrived later. Margaritas were said to be one of their specialties but I have had better. All in all I enjoyed our dining experience.
Crazy crowded and noisy but the food was wonderful. They make fresh delicious margaritas too. Didn’t seem to be enough help, the wait for service took awhile. We will be back for the hand made creative Mexican food.
Tacos were delicious - especially the blackened salmon and shrimp ones. Service was very inattentive. Food came long before our drinks. Server disappeared for long stretches. Still we enjoyed the meal and the ambiance and would return for sure.
Thanks, the food was delicious. I treated a friend from Portland. You accommodated her needs and she really enjoyed herself. I don't eat out that much anymore, but I keep thinking of who I can make plans with to take them to your yummy restaurant. We mIssed happy hour this time, yours has one of the best selections of both food and drinks. I don't drink anymore, but was remembering how delicious your creations are. I loved the cumin rimmed spicy margurita. The atmosphere is fun and we felt very comfortable there even as non-drinkers. The chips and guacamole were great.
there was only one server and they took forever to get to us, and the food also took a long while, although it looks like a trendy place i wouldn’t go back again, management needs to hire more servers !
Super busy on a holiday, but eventhough the staff was over whelmedd, I have to commend them on their friendliness and patience. We still had a phenomenal meal and pregamed. Great staff!
Food was decent with a very poor experience. The manager told us 40 minutes after we placed our order that there was only one cook there that night. We understand things happen, but it would have been helpful to have told us earlier. We wouldn't have ordered an appetizer (which 40 minutes after ordering we still didn't have). It also would have gone a long way to explain to everyone that they were unexpectedly short on staff right away and offer a little something to each table. For example, chips and salsa are inexpensive and would have kept people satisfied while they were waiting over an hour for their food. The way the situation was handled just wasn't the best.
Food was good. Very noisy! But we were able to sit in the (small) back room where it was easier to converse.
The server was very friendly! I felt the food lacked flavor. Just using chili powder doesn’t provide enough variety in taste. The guacamole and chips were tasty. The cilantro sauce was interesting and there was so much of it. The chicken tamale was not tasty.The portions were certainly large. One of us enjoyed the “deconstructed chili relleno. The cucumber appetizer was crunchy and lightly spiced. The blood orange margarita was enjoyable.
Our server was outstanding, attentive and sincerely friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and hot which is sometimes not the case in restaurants. The prices seem to have gone up, but that is true everywhere. The rice, bean mixture was a tasty change from most Mexican restaurants.
Delicious food, fun atmosphere, great service! Excellent!
I found, to my delight, a great gathering place for casual dining! Barrio Star definitely is a great place to eat! Their food was very delicious and the service was great, also. There were a lot of young people there (I’m 66) mixed with whole families and everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time. I recommend it for those who just want to relax and have a great meal. P.S. They have very good margaritas!
mimosa flight was excellent as were the brunch items. . . we will definitely be back and bring friends!
Great atmosphere, the decor was super cute too, Mexican theme of course. The tacos were really good too, my favorites were the potato & spicy chicken taco. You can tell the tortillas were made from scratch. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because there was only 1 server for like a whole section which resulted in taking quite a while to get our drinks. But Kudos to our server who tried his best to hustle through all the chaos.
Service was lacking.
While the one waiter was nice, service was horrible. Maybe they were understaffed, too an explanation could've helped. Food was so-so. It was cold and the front door remained open every time someone came/went.
Amazing night out. Margaritas are the best!!!!
We were excited to find a super creative special menu for Valentines Day. Great service, thank you Kyle! We had a blast! Margaritas and dinner were outstanding with some unique twists on flavors and ingredients. A very fun evening! We will definitely be back!
