Such a warm place to have a casual Tex-Mex meal. From their Taos Taos salad to the nachos and all the vegetarian dishes, we absolutely love their prepared dishes, and manage to make quite a dent in their salsa bar because we love the variety of salsas.

This is a comfortable, casual spot for affordable dining- but it is not fast food. They have a good selection of beer & wine and comfortable tables inside & out. Rio Adobe has good southwestern (TexMex/New Mexico etc.) menu items. The carne adobada burrito is good, as are the mariscos tacos and the carnitas. There are also regular additions &... More
