Great tacos and cocktails for a happy hour.
Really good experience! Portions are hearty and tasty and the price isn't bad! Pretty unique menu with good options. We were one of 2 tables being served and service was just ok when we arrived, but picked up once we get our food order in.
Great food although someone told me they used to have gator bites, they don’t sadly
Found a GEM!! Awesome food!
Fun way to start the all you can drink Margs. Get the chicharrons!
To even begin to describe all the flavors I experienced would not do this restaurant justice. Delicious!!! I've never heard of a place having bottomless micheladas for brunch and was a little anxious to try it here. Yes, I'm picky but that's because I feel like I've had the best! Hands down, they make this like your abuelo used to before your abuelita saved him from the streets. I'm sure you've had chilaquiles before where there's always a big tostada on the bottom and its hard to pick up let alone fit all in your mouth. Barbed Wire Reef just changed the game with thin, long pieces of tostada that are then piled high with flavors ranging from mild to knock your socks off fire. Did I mention that they have 7 different kinds?! I asked the bartender/server/ninja Brittany who the chefs are. It was nice to put a face to these creative geniuses. Thank you Alan and Mario! I'm thankful I was able to try chilaquiles they way they're supposed to be made. I'll be back!
Was really hyped going in. Still hungry coming out. Ordered the fish and chips. It was awful. Overcooked, rubbery and fishy. My dad ordered the pulled wild boar which was ok but they didn't even give him enough to fill the bun with the smallest portion of coleslaw I've ever seen. The kids got sliders, which I was gonna snack on, but they were obviously preformed frozen patties that weren't good either. To be fair, my wife loved her tacos and the drinks were good! UPDATE: 3 OUT OF 5 OF US GOT FOOD POISONING. MY WIFE AND 3 YEAR OLD SPENT THE FOLLOWING DAY WITH ALL THE SYMPTOMS. BECAUSE I RETURNED MOST OF MY MEAL, I WAS JUST UNCOMFORTABLE. MY OTHER DAUGHTER DIDNT LIKE HER BURGER, SO SHE ONLY ATE FRIES AND MY DADS WILD BOAR MUSTVE BEEN UP TO TEMP. BEWARE OF THIS KITCHEN AND CROSS CONTAMINATION. ITS BEEN AWFUL.

Barb Wire Reef is maybe my favorite restaurant in Denver. The owner is an absolute gem, the staff is friendly, the vibe and music always pitch perfect and the food is clearly made with love and care. After 30+ visits without a single off experience, I can't say enough about Barb Wire Reef...Just Go.
The food truck for our company lunch was excellent!
