Barbacoa Opening June 5th in Orinda


Last month I noted that the hotly anticipated wood-fired Mexican Grill Barbacoa would be opening sometime in June and I have now learned that it will open next Tuesday, June 5th for dinner. Lunch service will follow sometime in the future. How cool is that sign?

Check out the awesome outdoor patio in front:

With Table 24 (same owners) and Shelby’s nearby, Orinda Theater Square is becoming a great dining destination. I can’t wait to try this place out.

    I didn’t realize that Table 24 were the same owners. I did a review on them on yelp. Sadly I won’t be going back to Table 24, after I witnessed the cooks cross contaminating the food. Time after time, I saw them handle raw chicken, then touch the lettuce that goes onto the burgers. :( I’m hoping that they read my review ages ago and had a meeting with the cooks about this.

      That’s too bad. This new place looks really amazing though, I’m going to give it a try for sure.

        I’m afraid this will be another watered down Tex Mex place, given that it is owned by the folks at Table 24. I guess I’ll just stick to going through the tunnel to Doña Tomas, where the owner is actually Mexican, and makes really inspired higher end Mexican food.

          That sounds good also, I’ll have to check that out, thanks!

    Reviews on Yelp are in, and it is what I feared.
