Cocina Del Barrio – Happy Hour


Happy Hour is, without a doubt, my favorite time of day, because the food and drinks are just as great as they are at dinner, but at a fraction of the price. Combine my favorite time of the day and my favorite food and you have a simple equation:

Happy Hour + Tacos = Barrio



This is where you go for an upscale authentic taco. The place may be classy, but the food is still the same great flavors as a taco truck….which they have!



Happy Hour means that select menu items are generally offered at a discounted price. I ordered the Quesadillas as well as some guacamole & chips.

The guacamole is beyond delicious. They do a great job seasoning it and the color is a bright and vibrant green. The homemade chips are also salted to perfection.

The Quesadilla was also pretty good. It’s hard to plate a quesadilla and make it look anything other than messy, but the taste was definitely delicious.



Barrio is known for their tequila, which makes total sense considering they’re a Mexican restaurant. I ordered the “Mama Cita,” which is a Hibiscus margarita made with pineapple and orange juices,┬átraditional blanco and a splash of cava. It definitely went down quickly and I had to pace myself with water before ordering another one.
