Excellent, mouth water tacos galore! Made with Corn tortillas. Pork belly, steak, and veggie is the choice. Other entrees are GF as well. Ask about the chips, because they are in a shared fryer. I usually stay away because of my sensitivity. Margaritas are premium!

As a celiac, this is one of my favorite restaurants to go to! They have many options for us and I’ve never experienced any sickness or symptoms after eating there.

I was so disappointed in my experience at Barrio in downtown St. Paul. My dinner there ended up being one scoop of guacamole, a baggie of chips I brought from home, raw veggies and a margarita. That was all that I felt comfortable eating (and basically the only things I was offered).

The menu denotes “gluten friendly” items and I researched beforehand on this app for other reviews so I felt comfortable enough that I would be able to find something to eat there. I looked over the menu when I arrived and thought a shrimp and quinoa dish sounded safe. Our server, Amber, was very nice and said that she understood that Celiac was serious and would talk with the kitchen and her manager. The manager never came over, even though Amber said she kept asking her to. In the end I was basically told that they were not able to accommodate me and didn't even want to try. At least they're honest. I was told there was “flour in the air” in the kitchen and they couldn’t guarantee that anything would be safe enough for me to eat. I was offered raw veggies.

The only pass that I will give them is that it was a busy Saturday night. I do feel that good customer service would have included the manager coming over and maybe offering for someone in the kitchen to handle my meal a little more carefully, like they do at other restaurants that are not 100% gluten-free. Most are at least somewhat helpful. They just didn’t want to try to help me. I won’t be back to any of the locations here in Minneapolis/St. Paul. I think they should just remove the notation of “gluten-friendly” options from their menu. I absolutely would NOT recommend this restaurant for Celiac diners.

Pricey for the small portions you get. Not bad gluten-free menu though.

Lots of options clearly noted on their menu. Was recently told chips are fried in oil with gluten items - huge bummer as they have great salsas and guacamole.

Definitely try the Chicken Enchilada - it's a sweet surprise. The corn chowder is also really good.

Gluten free is noted on the menu & staff is very knowledgeable.

Gluten free listed on menu. Mexican tacos and small plates. Great guac and chips made to order. Great happy hour drink and food specials. I am dairy free too and my taco came with cream sauce, but they fixed it right away no questions asked! Will return.
