My girlfriend, her daughter and I visited their Envigado location (Carrera 44A #30 Sur-23) on a Sunday afternoon in January, 2017. The walls contained American memorabilia and they played some American music. The first songs I heard were oldies from my day - Hit the Road Jack followed by Chubby Checker’s The Twist. Their menu consists of a variety of... More

Went with the family and the burgers are filling. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Good burgers, good ribs and a very wide selection of beer.

They have 4 locations in Medellin: Envigado (sector Pavezgo), Laureles (avenida Jardin), and Poblado (one in sector Manila and one in sector La Strada). The menu offers a large selection of burgers, from more traditional to more strange (for example with pineapple or other unusual toppings). For each burger, you can choose between 150g or 250g. They also have a... More

Stopped in to get out of the rain. Stellar service, cold beer and nostalgic decor (rock and roll, mostly Beatles). The onion rings were good and the dipping sauce was even better. I didn´t especially care for the dip (looks like spinach dip, but I don´t think it is) and the bread wasn´t crisp enough for spreading a dip onto... More

Extended menu with lots of varieties, which is cool, but I wasn't fan of the meat, 3/4 was overcooked and it was dried..So definitely not the meat type to be cooked a lot

I go to Barbacoa very often because i really enjoy the restaurant, first of all i love the New York burger it has 200 grams of tasty roast beef and the fried fries are fantastic, there are many restaurants in the city and all of them have a unique american rock style, but the best of all without any doubt...

I think they have 3 locations, we have been to 2. Rock and roll decor attracts a lots of couples - good beer offering. They feature unusual takes on burgers, but I prefer the rib burger - basically a rib sandwich. You can also buy a rack of short ribs. I think Chef Burger is a little better, but often... More

They have great different types of burgers. I always get the California burger. The price is just right for the combo with a beer. I normally visit the Barbacoa spot in Barrio Manila. The staff there is excellent! Especially the guy that works there at night, he's super attentive. His customer service is a big part to the reason why... More

Being from California I think I know my way around a burger. There are a few spots in Medellin that hit the mark and Barbacoa is definitely one of them. They have two options for burgers the 150kg and the 250kg. I've been to the location in Barrio Manila 10 times now and always get the 250kg I've tried all... More

In this case, you get what you pay for. Barbacoa has one of the pricier burgers in town, but they make great big juicy hamburgers with excellent buns and good fries. This is where to go to get your burger fix in Medellin.
