Barrio Centro Reviews

Barrio Centro is a great neighborhood. Primarily hispanic families, friendly people, safe, a great little park on Bristol. Close to the Aviation bike path and downtown. Good restaurants nearby, especially Mariscos Chihuahua. All it needs is a coffee shop and a community garden at the park.
