Barrio Café

Barrio Café is the vision of owners Wendy Gruber and Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza. Since 2002, Barrio Café has been the celebrated home to Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza. Here, her unique cuisine serves to elevate Mexican American culture. Chef Silvana's versions of regional Mexican favorites are recognized as some of the best Mexican cuisines in Phoenix, the region, and nationally. Some iconic menu items include Cochinita Pibil, Chiles en Nogada, and Chef's tableside Guacamole.

The one and only Barrio Café is located on 16th Street, just south of Thomas Road, in Phoenix Arizona. Park in the rear, and enter through the back door, to arrive at some of the best Mexican cuisines in the country.

Enjoy live music in the dining room each Thursday through Saturday nights and on Sunday afternoons.

NO RESERVATIONS, First Come, First Served

Silvana Salcido Esparza comes from humble beginnings as a baker's daughter in Central Valley California. She grew up in a multi-generational home, learning to cook with her Grandmother and working alongside her parents in the family bakeries. After culinary school, Chef Silvana traveled independently to all parts of Mexico. She brought that experience home to Phoenix when, in 2002, she opened Barrio Café with her business partner Wendy Gruber.

Chef Silvana's food is legendary. Her expertise was sought by Sunset Magazine, her vision was recognized by Esquire Magazine, and her iconic cuisine was featured on the Food Network's Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. In addition to her culinary contributions, Chef Silvana endeavors to make Phoenix a better place to live and work through her tireless support of artists.
