We visited during restaurant week. The lunch time crowd filled all the indoor seating, but we were quickly seated outdoors. Despite the 100+ degree heat, the shade and misters made it quite comfortable. Service was attentive. I tried the restaurant week special menu and loved everything! The guacamole was delightful. The chips thick and freshly fried. Great central location in... More

Read reviews on Trip Advisor and went there for lunch while in Scottsdale. Could have not been more disappointed. Food was just adequate, limited menu, poor service. Two servers could not have been more uninterested in serving. Very expensive for what you get. Would not recommend. Other places much better.

I've been to Barrio Queen a number of times and I love it! The food is great, the service is good and the atmosphere is super fun! We have celebrations there, we take out of town guests there, we go on our own. Lots of choices and I really love the street tacos. You can order one or five, mis... More

2nd time to Barrio Queen, 1st time at the Gilbert location, 1st. time here at the Scottsdale location. We came here for Restaurant Week to take advantage of the Sweet $33 offering. We arrived on a Saturday at 5:30 since they do not take reservations. We were greeted and seated right away. There is a different feel between locations, Scottsdale... More

Check out the $16 Cadillac Margarita and the vegetarian Chili Rellano. Everything made with fresh ingredients. We drove an hour from Sun City West to enjoy some of the best Mexican food I have ever had!!

We parked in old town and took the free trolley to The Barrio Queen. We were seated outside as requested and it was a wonderful evening. We ordered the table side made guac, I had a plate of tacos, daughters had enchiladas and the chicken in creamy cheese sauce. All were excellent and the service was very good.

If you are looking for high-quality Mexican food and margaritas with a bit of flare, this is a good restaurant. The decorations are interesting and create a fun atmosphere. There are many choices on the menu and we enjoyed everything we ordered. Price was little on the high side, but worth it for a fun meal out.

Went here in a recommendation from the bar tender at the Brat Haus. Very cool and lively atmosphere. I had the Cochinita Pibil (slow cooked porked wrapped in banana leaf) and the freshly made guacamole. The food was excellent and the wait staff was quick and attentive. Definitely worth a visit if you are in old town scottsdale.

We enjoyed a wonderful Mexican lunch at this spot in downtown scottsdale- great atmosphere inside, slightly slow service but the food made up for it. The coffee infused with cinnamon was amazing! A spot by the waterfront area.

It's not as crowded and instead of 4 tacos for $10, you only get 3. But it's just as good, the rice is still the best I know. Salsa and chips are delicious. Dishes come out quickly but they never make you feel rushed. Barrio Queen is a popular place we try and visit every year when we come to... More
