The food here was excellent and the best price we found in town for tacos. Good grilled chicken sandwich as well. The service was friendly. I wish they were open for dinner too.

This place was yummy and the service was excellent. Fresh tortillas, very nice salsa bar, and over the top portions of meat in the tacos.

We spent 10 days in LB twice a year and eat breakfast at El Viejo almost daily. It never disappoints. It's fast, friendly and consistent. We have not tried El Viejo for lunch but the breakfast options are amazing.

Breakfast and lunch option, closes at 3 p.m. So reasonably priced, do not need a "local's night" for deals.
What would be the price range for "El Viejo"?

By US standards, cheap. By Mexico standards, moderate. My wife and I eat lunch for under $15 combined (and often under $10) including drinks.

I don't see reviews for any of Los Barriles' many restaurants or the local attractions for that matter. I live here and would be glad to provide more information about this great little town if you are interested.
