Chile en nogada, sinchronizadas, sopa azteca, and more. Mouth watering thinking about it. Good value good food and unfortunately popular. Wish it was quicker getting a table there but fortunately there are plenty of bars nearby to wait at in the meantime. Wish they would expand the restaurant.

Food has got to be among the best Mexican in the city! Similar in (mexican) style to food at La Esquina as well as the hip factor but only in a much smaller space. Wait is always long but well worth it. It's an amazing value considering the food quality and creativity. Margaritas are tops too. If you want great mexican food in a cool place (sans John Mayer who is often at Esquina), this is the place to be!

Best Mexican in New York. Best dishes are ceviche, enchiladas verdes, and steak. Margaritas are fresh fruit and delicious. Food is very reasonably priced for the quality. The drinks will set you back, however, if you order more than two while you wait. Never go later than 6 pm -- the wait is not worth it and it's much too crowded.

Food was fantastic, great portions, had fun music in the background. A little tight and a little pricey on the cocktails. FYI Barrio means town and Chino means China...Hence Mexican restaurant in China Town, get it?

You may have to wait 20 minutes to be seated at a table (I recommend a seat at the bar) after 6 o clock, but for a place thats packed every night of the week in an area off the beaten track- there's a good reason. Don't be fooled by the cardboard drinks menus. The grapefruit margarita is a gem as well as the dark ginger mojito. To absorb the alcohol- I recommend the steak tacos and calamari salad.

I went here for a celebration dinner and was greatly dissapointed. We were told it would be 45 min for table, waited an hour and fifteen and weren't attended to at all. The only good thing about the meal were the over priced fruity margaritas. The portions are tiny and way over priced, the place is cramped and over stuffed with people, and just really overrated. We had a poor experience and think there are MUCH better Mexican places in the area. Dont waste your time waiting for table...but if there isnt much of wait I guess you could try it, as long as you aren't hungry for a big meal.

We wandered in here on a Friday night looking for some food and cocktails and were very pleasantly surprised. They have interesting drinks like an habanero margarita which was excellent, and they have some of the best tacos I've had in New York....they are nicely sized, smaller than the standard tortilla, and have interesting touches, like pineapple with the pork al pastor. Give it a try!
