My Wife and I, as well as our friends frequent Mi Barrio about once a week. I think that something may be missing in translation when it comes to the restaurant. There is no cook, manager, or staff. This restaurant is owned by a family. The mother and sisters cook, the husband and cousins serve. The "manager-Lisa" so to speak is the oldest sister. When we arrive they parade the the Poblanos and Tamales out for our inspection. Like many restaurants there are some things that are much better than others. Some of our favorites are the common fare...chicken or pork tacos (crunchy is a must), chile rellenos, tamales, nachos. I will say this...you can walk in have two dishes two beers and lunch to go for the next day for approximately $25..that is awesome and what a Mexican restaurant is all about. Mi barrio is everything you would want in a neighborhood Mexican restaurant. Yes, watch out for the tooth picks!
It is not impossible as evidenced above. I apologize for ruffling your boa feathers! waka waka
Cliff..stick to the food ...we don't care about your political whims!
I live very close to P'cheen and enjoy the food, crowd, and atmosphere. However I have found a certain few people there to be very unpleasant (especially a certain bartender). Funny thing is that the cooks and such are much more personable. Good Luck to you guys and please take my comment to heart.
