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.
Amazing hand made tortillas and house margaritas! Best skinny margarita I’ve had in San Diego.
Really great ambiance and service, the food was ok but definitely not worth the price! I don't think we'll be going back for brunch
Barrio Star is one of our favorite restaurants, and never disappoints. San Diegans and those visiting should not miss this spot!
We loved everything here. Margarita flight to start with chips and salsa. Chilli relleno and potato tacos.
Tables were wobbly
Service was slow
But waiters were kind
Our waiter was perfect. He recommended an excellent tequila. A treat.
Great food and great service. We will definitely be back!
First time to San Diego with my family. We were seated promptly and drink orders taken by Jeremy. He was gracious and courteous with my family. The other waitstaff was phenomenal as well.
Food was delicious. Ordered a taco plate and everything was delicious.
Keep up the great job Jeremy, and the rest of the staff at Barrio Star.!
Loved this dining experience here, the food, and blood orange margaritas!
The kitchen was a bit off tonight but after Barrio Star being a favorite for over a decade, we will cut some slack. The food is always good the wait staff is what makes this neighborhood gem. Kyle and Curtis always make our dining experience the best. We couldn't ask for better waiters - both are very good at their jobs. Thanks Curtis for another great evening.
We loved Paola our server! Thanks!
Barrio has never been known for their service. But, the service was excellent on Sunday, 7/11. Thank you Poala!
The service here is awesome! Every time we've been we really get taken care of and feel welcome. This place is a gem right off of Balboa Park and a nice 'getaway' to sit, feel the cool breeze, and get some great food. I would recommend trying 3 of their tacos, the Margarita flight, and staying a bit longer for dessert.
I’m a Barrio Star fan from way back. That’s why I took 3 friends to lunch there on July 5. It was disappointing. We ordered taco plates. The food was cold and uninspired. Sad about it. Maybe a fill in chef during the holiday?
Margarita Flight was great. Food tasted awesome and presented well. Great options for multiple dietary styles/choices.
So awful and so disappointing. How do you mess up a Mexican food experience in San Diego? - boy this place sure did. Food was so badly prepared and tasteless. They had stuff from the staff (back packs etc) just hanging around tables near the kitchen. Seems like a bunch of inexperienced people working the restaurant trying to get by with the bare minimum. Shame on open table for having this place as an option. Shoot there are so many great Mexican places in SD and rolled the dice to try something new but no dice here.
Very delicious food and drinks! The outside is really nice with a nice view of the neighborhood!
We waited an hour for our food and asked about 4 times to check on it.
Great food, staff are awesome. Love the ambiance.
Our waiter and the rest of the employees were great. Food was good and the I only took stats off because it took over an hour to get our food to the table after we order a couple tacos.
Our server, who said he has worked there forever ever, was phenomenal! We absolutely enjoyed his service. However, we waited over an hour for our food. They ran out of beans which is odd for a Mexican restaurant. The food was wonderful. Potato taco is my personal favorite. I would have given a 5/5 if we didn’t have to wait an hour, which is, well … EXTREME!
Over all, the experience was amazing. When booking my table it gave me the option to sit inside or outside, however when I got there they stated they had no indoor seats available, even though there was some. We were sat right out front, so didn’t get the full ambiance experience, but the food was great and the drinks are very good. Margarita flight is highly recommended.
Service was poor and it took at least 45 minutes to receive our food after it was ordered.
