    If you're a pork lover, the Arizona Burrito is a winner.

    Fresh and authentic with just the right amount of twist, but over priced and slow. Recommend Cochinita Pupil.

    Delicious. Don't miss the Cochinito pibil.

    Cochinita pibil tacos are very good but I think the carne asada tacos were even better. Love the olive tapenade served with bread.

    Pomegranate guacamole, enchilada rosa with potatoes and eggs at brunch with some live music...simply amazing...!!!

    There's plenty of great Mexican food in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area, but this one wins thanks to its pork pibil and mole as well as its murals designed by local painters and graffiti artists.

    Perhaps the best pork that they braise and slow roast for 24 hours that I've ever tasted.

    If you get the Torta Cochinita Pibil, which you should, DON'T try to use your hands. #nom

    Served on a crusty split roll that's been toasted, the Torta de Filetito is a charred, tender, medium-rare filet mignon, smothered with tangy chipotle sauce & topped w/ chorizo and blue cheese. Read more

    Food seems to be microwaved. When I asked about this, they kicked us out. This place doesn't deserve your business.

    Try to go at off-peak times and stick to the original Barrio a little off the beaten path. Read more

    Nothing to complain about here - but so much praise to give. Margaritas - outstanding. Chile Rellenos - amazing, Churros con cajeta are to die for. Wow - what an experience!

    Try to go at off-peak times and stick to the original Barrio a little off the beaten path. The new one in Scottsdale is likely closer to your hotel, but it’s still ironing out the kinks. Read more

    Food blogger Kathy of Crafty Chica recommends Barrio Café. "Don't leave without ordering the goat's-milk caramel–stuffed fritters topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate espresso sauce."
