Barrio Star is a go to every time my family is in town!
Love this place! We’re regulars! Our favorites are the cucumbers, the steak tacos and the blood orange margaritas!
Such a fun time with delicious food, excellent service and great live music. Cannot wait to go back.
Honestly, I found the restaurant underwhelming and too expensive for the quality and quantity of food you get. Guacamole and salsa had no spice at all and were quite bland. I did ask if they had anything spicier when dinner came and they brought out something the waitress said was super spicy - it was better than the original salsa they provide but really not THAT spicy. Margaritas were meh. Meals themselves were overpriced and didn't do much for the taste buds. I had been wanting to try this place for a long time based on reviews and the look of the place from outside when driving by. Doubtful we would go back again based on the experience. We didn't get why people like this place so much - much better options in San Diego.
Enjoyed our delicious tack plate dinner! A lovely Friday evening, with live music too. Service was great, delicious food and generous portions!
This is the best Mexican restaurant in SD! I make a point to come here every time I’m visiting and it never disappoints. The food is delicious, the margaritas are perfect and the servers are awesome!
The blood orange margaritas were amazing and the food was so tasty. Six different people all ordered six different dishes and all were so good. The live band was a nice touch. Definitely going back.
Our first meal there post-Covid and it was a wonderful return. The Brazil bowl was fabulous, as was the Margarita fright and taco sampler. It was our anniversary celebration and they provided a nice outdoor table away from the noise of the larger groups. Thanks so much. Great food, great drinks
Big portions, only needed 1 entree to share. Tamarind margarita was delish!
A really good, casual restaurant. Vegetarian options are plentiful, interesting and delicious. Good margaritas.
Such a fun dinner... the food was great and the service was amazing! Best Taco's we have ever had and try the Blood Orange Margaritas...so so good!
Barrio Star has been one of our favorite spots for years. They have great margaritas and are very veggie friendly.
Taco Tuesday is good there. $5 Tacos...very good fish and steak tacos. The drinks were pricey, and the noise level was pretty annoying. Server seemed to push drinks a little too hard for my taste. I know it's his job - but seemed a little too over the top. I would go back certainly - and sit on the patio on Nutmeg...much easier to chat.
Good food and it felt like home.

sad entrees, very bland and seemed to have been cooked a day before.Stick to tacos if you go.
The food was fantastic. The service was great. And the atmosphere was casual and enjoyable.
We always eat at Barrio Star when we visit San Diego, so that is about 6 times in the last 4 years (can't blame us for missing 2020!). The food and service have always been outstanding. We actually ate there with separate guests both Friday and Saturday nights this weekend. Of course we are always annoyed at the level of noise, making it a bit difficult to converse, but then that is also part of the charm of the place and it will not stop us from returning!
Lovely night! Delicious Chile rellenos!
The food and service were good. The waiter had too many tables to wait on. Even so, he did a really good job. The clientele is extremely loud and shrill, even dining outside. It was a drawback to having an enjoyable time.
Great food, and even better busser/food runner! Staff is very friendly and quick to tend to any requests
Stopped in for brunch. Food was delish. We had the best bloody Mary and blood Orange margarita. 10/10
Bummed they reduced their happy hour menu. Also, the live music could be better. Seems to not be as hopping as it was in the past.
I was disappointed. I haven't been to Barrio Star since the pandemic hit 18 months ago. The Posole soup was quite good but my entre was nothing special. Maybe it was an off night. I will still go back and try it again.
Superb food, drinks, and service. Simply the best.
We love it here! Awesome margaritas and delicious food! Super fun atmosphere with live music! We went on a Tuesday and didn’t realize it was taco Tuesday so killer deals on food and drinks! Will definitely go back!
It’s my favorite go to restaurant! The food is so good, love this place!
Food was excellent. Our server was Curtis and he was on point. Definitely recommend this place we will be back next time we are in town!
We chose Barrio Star because they offered a choice between and indoor and outdoor table. However, when we arrived they told us they only had indoor tables. We waited another 30 mins past our reservation time for an outdoor table. However, the food, service and value were excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are flexible about eating indoors. Do not recommend if you want to be guaranteed an outdoor table.
Curtis was amazing! Food was delish...service delightful, and the vibe made the evening!!
Fanatic dinner as always! This is my go-to spot to recommend to my friends, and we’ve become regulars here! Curtis is a fantastic server that always gives great recommendations. Be sure to try the blood orange margarita!
Food was fresh and tasty. I had the chili relleno. It came with a well prepared spanish rice with roasted corn. I don't usually eat the rice that comes with mexican food, but, this rice was so good. The relleno was cheesy and mild. It wasnt breaded like traditional relleno's, so the dish tasted light and delicious.
My friend had the mixed taco plate. She got to pick from a list of taco's available. The tortillas were made fresh. You can really tell the difference with these taco.
We would order these dishes again.
Nice neighborhood Mexican restaurant. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place
Food was so tasty
My son LOVES their soyrizo tacos and Aqua Fresca! We enjoy going and trying their specials while my son sticks to his favorite dish! The staff is always friendly and the food is excellent!
I would dine here much more often, but it’s so incredibly loud, it’s hard to enjoy the meal. I haven’t been here in about four years because of the noise level, even though they have some of the best food in town. Now that they have outdoor dining, we thought we try it again. Somehow, they were able to maintain the loudness outside. To have a conversation with your dining partners, you need to yell, so it’s not conducive to the experience. I cannot fault the service or the food though- so if excessive noise doesn’t bother you, go for it!
Barrio Star is consistently great, and the staff is awesome!
Loved my experience here. It was a first date and was a great location.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday with friends.
