Barbacoa in Ardmore

For those of you who have been to this restaurant, is this a place that is good for a casual Saturday night sit down dinner for four? Or is it more of a takeout place?

  1. there are a few tables, but really no atmosphere no tablecothes, TV in the corner etc. food is good but we've only done take-out --I have seen parent eating w/kids there

    1. As elmom says, they have a couple of tables, but I would not recommend it for a 'casual Saturday night sit-down dinner for 4'. But I do strongly recommend it for takeout! I have probably had 10 meal from there just about covering their entire menu and they have all been very good, especially the chicken.

      1. Barbacoa is some of the best BBQ in the area. The Peruvian chicken rocks when it is fresh (I had some at lunch once and it was dry.) Brisket and ribs are great. It is crowded and noisy inside.. They have some great family bundles.
