Gayot: The Guide to the Good Life

The beauty of Barrio Lakewood lies in its blissful simplicity. Aside from a handful of starters and sides, tacos take center stage. Diners are asked to order via pencil and paper — a smart move given the infinite number of possible combinations. Every aspect of your taco is customizable: hard or soft, corn or flour, braised beef or spicy, house-made chorizo, and the list goes on. There are a dozen salsas and sauces from which to choose, including a chipotle crema, habanero mango, and fiery Barrio Secret. Top it off with lettuce, onions, cilantro, tomato and three types of cheese and you’re ready to roll.
