Barbosa's is consistently delicious food that is not like typical chain Mexican food. Never disappointed at Barbosa's. The service is always friendly and fast also.

Barbosa's is a favorite of my family. I have been going for years and I have never found a Mexican restaurant that even compares. The service is fast and the food is amazing. Stands out from all the other Mexican restaurants. The avocado dip and chips is a must get. Chips cost extra, but trust me it is worth it.... More

Yummy! Lot's of history and atmosphere. Good salsa and fried flour chips. My favorite is the avocado salad and it is enough for 2 meals. Lots of unique choices.

My late lunch of a traditionally prepared chile relleno and a tamale were generously sized and very good. The service was friendly and the historic venue unexpected!

The food is a little different than a typical Mexican restaurant but it is good. The castle is an old home that has been converted to the restaurant which makes for an unique experience. I highly recommend it.

This restaurant was been operated since 1974 in a large house built about 1891. It was probably THE place to go at one time but now showing its losing battle with time. The food tasted fine and service was very good. I don't mind paying for chips and salsa (often complimentary) but $5 seems too much, really. The house needs... More

From service to food, this is the worst Mexican food I have ever had. We did not even finish our meal. If you are looking for food Mexican, make it at home.
