I love Barbosa and I grew up eating there but I found that prices keep raising every time I stop by and it is becoming less and less of a value to spend my money there. Amazing food though. I love the place.

The combination plate was the magic touch at Barbosa's Castillo. I opted for not only the tamale, but I had an additional tamale. Trust me, I've had my share of tamales, and this white cornmeal tasty treat was outstanding. The enchiladas were flour tortilla based,...More
