We started our lunch with a tour of the restaurant. There are party rooms and seating outside. In addition, there is a huge bar as soon as you walk in the restaurant. On the side is a drink area, which features specialty sodas.

Celso has been in the restaurant industry for over 15 years, but El Barrio Cantina & Tequila Bar has only been around for 2 years. He frequently donates to CRSD and recently honored the CRSD teachers during teacher appreciation month. One of his programs is called “Dinging to Donate”. 15% of sales can be earned by your organization, call the aforementioned phone number for more information.

TIME FOR FOOD! We started our meal with chips and salsa. In addition, the restaurant also has a “Guacamole of the Month”. Next we were served shrimp tacos, steak tacos, a chicken chimichanga and a beef chimichanga. All of the meals were accompanied by rice, black beans and refried beans. The restaurant’s chef, Chef Ray, explained each detail of every dish and stressed how all of the ingredients are fresh. The freshness was noticeable to us, along with the great presentation of the food.
