Colorful. High Energy.
"Paella, tacos, lamb meatballs and other Spanish and Mexican dishes are the focus at this downtown hangout – along with margaritas, micheladas and more cocktails, beer and wine. The colorful, high-energy dining room is decked out with Latin American artifacts, and the sizable shaded patio is a draw in the warmer months."
Latin Street Flavors
“We shared three of the tapas before we dug into a paella. My favorites were duck and date pinchos, a snack of pitted medjool dates stuffed with duck confit, seasoned with blackberry sauce and almonds and served with a spinach-and-radish salad.”
Great Night Out With Friends
"Barrio is a lively venue featuring Latin cuisine. Inspired by the bold flavors of Mexico, Spain and South America, this eatery offers the perfect environment for a casual lunch or great night out with friends. The menu offers tasty options including the classic patatas bravas, fried red potatoes with sofrito sauce and cotija cheese; and four different varieties of paella."

Memories of Border Grill
"Memories of Border Grill in Santa Monica went through my mind as I devoured their well executed fusion of New Mexican chilies and the clever use ofplantains, as well as roasted peppers that only enhance the smokiness of the food. I love what they're doing here."

Spirited Take On Latin Cuisine
"Barrio began as many Oregon restaurants do, roving the city on four wheels. But two years in, Chef Steven Draheim’s spirited take on Latin cuisine had enough of a following to open up in a permanent location. Stop by during happy hour, when you can get tacos for $2.50 and margaritas for $5."
