Barrio Lakewood Restaurant Review

: The beauty of Barrio Lakewood lies in its blissful simplicity. Aside from a handful of starters and sides, tacos take center stage. Diners are asked to order via pencil and paper --- a smart move given the infinite number of possible combinations. Every aspect of your taco is customizable: hard or soft, corn or flour, braised beef or spicy, house-made chorizo, and the list goes on. There are a dozen salsas and sauces from which to choose, including a chipotle crema, habanero mango, and fiery Barrio Secret. Top it off with lettuce, onions, cilantro, tomato and three types of cheese and you’re ready to roll. Suggested tacos are also available and are a saving grace for those intimidated by the DIY process. Weekend brunch is equally as tasty with a slew of breakfast tacos. Barrio boasts a full bar and two dining rooms with plenty of seating no matter what day you dine. Forty beers are on tap; an extensive selection of tequilas, margaritas and cocktails is offered, too.
