Our girls crave Barberito's every week. Even when I make taco night at home, they want salsa, chips, queso & mango salsa to go from here. All the staff is probably some of the friendliest anywhere.

"Barbs" is a local favorite with numerous options to satisfy the carnivore and the vegetarian. Men love the steak burrito and women enjoy a burrito bowl. Burrito bowls are perfect for the ladies or gentlemen who want the taste, without all the carbs. Chipotle Ranch is a non-negotiable on any order. The best chips and tomatillo verde salsa in town....

My boyfriend is vegan, I am definitely not. I enjoyed the steak burrito and he had some vegan food option. The great thing about this place is he didn't have to suffer through eating another salad and I didn't have to pass up my delicious beef. All the meat comes from free-range animals and they have plenty of marked vegan... More

Watered down Tex Mex...I tried one of the bowls...whew...the place seems based on quanity not quality. The chicken was dry and seemed processed the beans had very little taste at all even the cheese seemed bland. Good news the servings and burritos are huge...bad news I didn't eat half. It was average at best...really not very appetizing.

I like choosing what goes on my burrito! The meat is very tasty, the beans not mushy, the Vegetables are fresh and crisp, the cheese sauce is good and creamy. Their salsa is my only complaint. It is just tomatoes I think. I want flavor and heat! But the service is fast and accurate and they always try to please... More

By far one of the best quick eats in the Tri-City area of upper East TN. Only one better and that's Ridgewood BBQ. Burritos and burrito bowls are huge. Well worth the money, drive time from Morristown, TN. Thank God they do NOT sell beer or alcoholic beverages......Just great food at a decent price. See my pictures for yourself.

I love these cantina style restaurants. i have tried them all and Barberitos is by far my favorite. The food is fresher than Chipolte and the staff is way more friendly.

We live an hour West of Johnson City and would drive it everyday to eat at this Barberitos location. Campus is not as good as this one near Chick-Fil-A & Home Depot. For the price and quality you can't beat there burritos, bowls, nachos, CHIPS & Salsa, nor Sweet Tea. We always eat in and then get an order for... More
