My husband and I prefer food that tastes like you're in Mexico, rather than Tex-Mex. This has all the choices you'd expect south of the border, and cheerful staff as well.

Great Mexican food much better than chuys (that everyone raves about) this is the real thing not Tex-Mex ; and the margaritas are truly the best in town. I specifically like the beef tacos (arrachera )covered with green chili cheese sauce. They also have a weekend breakfast brunch buffet which is decent.

Yah, it's the Mexican version of US pulled pork and WOW. Place is huge, service is on top of it all. I'll be hard pressed to try something else when I go back but I'll force myself.

Walked in and got a table immediately. Served us chips & salsa while we looked at the menu. They don't make Chimichangas (my fave) but walked us through a couple of other selections. Hubby chose the Mexican Plate and I had Tampiquena. They were both a hit. Yummy food, some local entertainment, and the prices were reasonable.

We've been here several times. Food always pretty good to very good; with a wide selection of authentic Mexican dishes. Service is hit-or-miss. Most recent visit was on a Sunday evening. Live singer was too loud for relaxed conversation. Recommended for real Mexican food, though.

We like going to Barrigas as they always have friendly staff and good food. The restaurant is clean and spacious so you aren't packed on top of other diners. I enjoyed the fried sea bass platter. The enchilada platter and chicken fajitas were very good.

Enmoladas pollo were fantastic! Burger was good; fries were very good. A bit spendy. Service was lacking; not much ambiance; noisy. We will be back!

I'm surprised this restaurant doesn't have a five star rating. The food is phenomenal! I've gone twice and both times not only was the food great, but the service was very good too and the establishment very clean. I find this restaurant to be very affordable, my boyfriend and I went on a Saturday and it turns out that they... More
