El Barco has alright food but its really the place for you if... Pros: food Cons: Everything else

Great seafood, cooked like you were in Mexico 11/5/2008

This place was recomended by out Mexican friends. Authentic! We went to Frontera Grill for Lunch which was so so, but were blown away with this place. Hard to get in and we saw why. If you like fish, and want to try it Mexican style come here. We had the snapper for two and got way way too much food. It was delicious, along with the plentiful key limes. My partner is from Mexico, and loved the place. Pros: Authentic delicous food. Cons: long waits, informal place more

Very good for very little 8/31/2008

First off, to address some of the negative comments. This is in a less than glitzy neighborhood. It may be billed as Wicker Park it may be billed as West Town - in any case it is a stretch of Ashland south of Division where few Lincoln Sqaure/ Park types venture. If you are uncomfortable when your whiteness does not grant you entry into majority status than you will likely be a little on edge. Silly, but fine with me as this place is always packed and for good reason - the food and the insanely low prices. Pitchers of margerita go for 8 dolllars, a Mahi Mahi fajita - 11 dollars! The fish is incredibly fresh and the veggies are as well. If you think that Mexican food is about tortias please go away, if you expect chipper little waitresses who attend to your every whim then pay more for some cheese covered dish at any of a plethera of eateries in any of the Lincolns - you will find many many white people there that will be far friendlier than the diverse group of Wicker Park natives who have discovered this gem! Pros: Very Fresh Fish, Wicker Park crowd Cons: Wicker Park crowd, servers are just not that into you more

Huge Portions 6/23/2007

El Barco has become my absolute favorite Mexican restaurant! My husband dand I have visited many, many times. I usually order the chicken fajitas and ALWAYS have leftovers, enough to get 2 additional meals out of it. I took my parents for Father's Day and my dad loved it. He got the Deep Fried Red Snapper. The Red Snapper was huge. The amount of food you get at El Barco is always plentiful. The prices are great, making El Barco the best value around. Pros: Huge Portions, low prices Cons: No Parking more

Seafood and Mexican 12/5/2006

I took my mom here with a party of 8 and let me tell you, it did not take long to get seated (on a Saturday night) and the food was beyond good and authentic. The whole fish platters, the shrimp salads ( and not that store bought shrimp, the real thing), the margaritas, oh those margaritas. Glasses were sooo big and when it came down to sing happy birtjday, the waitresses decided to bring my mom a margarita in a 3 foot long glass. My mom turned 60 and was very pleased, you will not regret this one. Can't way to go again.... Pros: The food is reasonably priced. Cons: Parking, can be a head ache. They have a lot but it holds 10 cars.... more

Great Mexican Seafood! 8/15/2006

This place is a hidden treasure! Great Mexican seafood. The place is small, but if there is a line, it is worth the wait! Pros: Large amounts of food, variety Cons: Place is small more
