Excellent food every time! Clean, great atmosphere! On the pricier side but worth it. We visit when ever we are through the sterling area.

We stopped here after being on the road all day. I'm guessing we looked a little rough and since it was late I assume the staff was tired.... which added up to less than friendly service. However, despite not being overly friendly they were polite. The food was awesome. Servings were huge and my wife couldn't finish her burrito even... More

Ordered the Ruben, bread was extremely soggy, but sweet potato fries were good, they could add a dipping sauce for the fries to make them great. All other meals ordered were good, prices were were fantastic. I will eat again, just don't order the Ruben.

Thanks to Trip Advisors we had dinner here on our way east out of Denver. Very good crowd, all the locals seemed to be there. Had steaks that were very good.

Went to the River City Grill on 11/9. I ordered the trout which was very good. I ordered a dinner salad (extra) and a bowl of Chili to go along with the meal, all of it was good.

We ate dinner there 11/6/15. Thanks to TA and also referred to by our hotel we chose it on a Friday night. My husband had the smothered burrito and I had the Santa Fe hamburger. His was very large, tasty and spicy with avocado and sour cream on the side. Very ample portions so we didn't need any sides. We... More

My husband and I each ordered the grilled mushroom onion burger. Excellent non-frozen beef patty. Driving a long day and found this on Trip Advisor. It was a very clean restaurant
