Barra Barra is a casual table service Mexican restaurant in the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. It has a single location and opened in 2009. The menu includes traditional Mexican dishes such as nachos, tacos, enchiladas and fajitas. There are also some chicken, seafood as well as ribs and steak entrees. The restaurant is located on a large open plaza, so the patio seating is a good choice to enjoy the setting.
Barra has separate dining sections which helps cut down on background noise. Also, there is reasonable separation between tables. The traditional Mexican themed décor was stylish and inviting. Background Mexican music was festive and upbeat but slightly loud. The servers wear traditional Mexican attire.
The restaurant was half full on a Monday evening. There is nothing quite like sipping a margarita and munching on tortillas on a terrace on a pleasant afternoon in California. The tequila was top shelf and potent. By the way, Barra has an extensive selection of tequilas, and there are tequila tastings every Thursday evening. Dinner included a soup of the day, vegetable fajita and apple crisp dessert. The soup was a creamy tomato with chicken broth and was slightly spicy. Although the portion was moderate, the taste was excellent. The fajita arrived within minutes of the soup, which was disappointing so note to wait on the pacing of your orders. As for the fajita it had a rich mix of vegetables such as spinach, asparagus, onions and mushrooms. While the ingredients were a bit soggy, the vegetables retained their distinctive flavor, and the dish was served piping hot. The guacamole sauce was first rate, but the portion was quite small. What can one say about a dessert that includes warm apple pie, cold vanilla ice cream, sweet whipped cream and a trace of chocolate sauce other than yum! The server was pleasant and professional and did a solid job except for forgetting to provide an extra requested plate. Barra was good enough to merit a return visit and works well as a follow up to the historic park both logistically and thematically. There is a free meal option for kids under 10.
