A place were poor ass Mexicans or latins with a few black people live. There is a %80 chance you will be robbed and beatin there. Mostly appartments, and made of tiny thrift stores, El Barrio is one of the most dangeorus places in any city.
Graifiti, Reggeton music, lowriders, and teens fightin each other are all signs you live in El Barrio. Also, if you hear shootings and "Arrrrrrrrriba esssssey" are signs too.
