Barrio Café in Phoenix: Happy Hour Report Card

Heather Hoch
White russian meets horchata in Barrio Cafe's chata cocktail.
The Drink:
Unlike most other happy hour spots in town, Barrio Café has a really straightforward deal on happy hour drinks -- half off everything. You can go for a cheap beer or Michelada, but the craft margarita selection with top shelf tequila varies in price from $5 to $7. The flor de jamaica margarita, a hibiscus-infused take on the drink, and the Sergio el Suave with pineapple, cilantro and candied jalapeno are two of our favorites. You can also go the creamier route with your imbibing with the chata or chones cocktails that feature Barrio's award-winning agua de horchata.

The Conclusion:
If you're looking for insanely cheap and unique tacos with cocktails to match, Barrio Café's happy hour is the spot for you. It's kind of a wonder to us that Gallo Blanco's Taco Tuesday is as popular as it is when you can get more options and better quality (in our opinion) in both drinks and food for a lower price at Barrio Café on Tuesday through Saturday.

that's because it ends at 5.  most people are actually at work.  which is why an evening of happy hour or tacos is popular.
