Barrio Star – San Diego

The sky’s the limit at Barrio Star, presenting San Diego with modern Mexican Soul Food, woven with bold Latin flavors and clever Asian touches. As one of several restaurants created by award-winning chef and restaurateur Isabel Cruz, Barrio Star’s bright and lively décor is a metaphor for what we proudly serve. Our vibrant flavors and healthier renditions of classic Mexican dishes reveal thoughtfully presented menu items that are sure to please every palate.

Pairing with our well-prepared food menu items is a mouthwatering beer and cocktail menu. Besides serving standard Mexican beers, we also offer rotating drafts as well as an extensive tequila menu. Our bartenders are “margarita artists,” you might say. With every ounce of lime, lemon and orange freshly squeezed into your glass. Kick-start the evening with our Roasted Jalapeno Blackberry Margarita and let the fiesta begin!

Enjoy favorites with a spin, such as our Tamales bathed in chili guajilo aside a scoop of jasmine rice and chipotle corn salad, or sink your teeth into one of our famous bowls, like the Brazil Bowl offering coconut rice, black beans, mango salsa, rich coconut chili sauce and steamed greens. The Barrio Bowl lays the same foundation with rice, beans and steamed greens – but honors a more traditional Latin flavor with pico de gallo and cilantro-lime sauce. Add tofu just for fun! And as you would expect, there is an addictive assortment of tacos, each prepared with house-made tortillas.

You can easily spot our bright orange building at the corner of Fifth and Nutmeg, right between the communities of Hillcrest and Banker’s Hill. For lively décor, smart servers, creative drinks and the artistic fusion of Latin and Asian cuisines, visit Barrio Star, where the best of Mexican soul food is celebrated and enjoyed!
