Barbosa’s Authentic Mexican Food in St. Joseph, Mo.

Barbosa's Authentic Mexican Food advertisement with contact information and three images of Mexican dishes. St. Joseph, Mo. 4804 Frederick Ave. 816-232-0221.

The Barbosa family has been a staple in the St. Joseph community for many years. Mr. and Mrs. E.C. Barbosa established the restaurant in 1960. Carly Moss, one of Barbosa’s managers and a member of the Barbosa family explains that long-time patrons fondly recall waiting on the couch with the children for homemade tamales, cooking in the next room. In 1974, the Barbosas purchased the former J.B. Moss House and, after remodeling, opened it for business in downtown St. Joseph. Sadly, they were forced to close this beautiful location after extensive vandalism and theft in 2019. But you can still read about the historic house at www.barbosascastillo.com/about. Now, they are located at 4804 Frederick Ave., in St. Joseph. Stop by for their out-of-this-world homemade flour chips, red pork chili, and tacos.
