Overpriced mediocre food prepared by high production staff. If you like Cheesecake Factory atmosphere and food, you will enjoy Barbacoa Grill. If you have a deserving palette, don't waste your time and money.

On entering the restaurant the decor is intriguing, but the service and the food is an experience as well and does not disappoint. Everything was great from the table side guacamole, the Latin Steak and the Tortilla Crusted Chile Relleno. Truly a fine dining experience.

The metal artwork and ambiance of Barbacoa is worth the visit alone. Presentation of food is excellent.
