Yummy roadside Mexican Fare!

Doesn't look like much from the outside, with an order window, drive through and some tables ... but it is the best Mexican you will get in New Buffalo! Fresh chips and salsa, all fresh ingredients in the burritos and tacos... guac and cilantro is all this girl needs to satisfy!

Although a small physical venue, the food is really good, prices are reasonable, and preparation is pretty fast. Try it!

average food in an average setting... nothing to come for unless you are already here. If there was a taco bell I would never had tried here. MC location much better.

We ate at Casey's, Stray Dog and Rios during our recent stay. We had a party of seven at each meal. We spent over $150 at Casey's and Stray Dog. I spent $65 at Rios and the food was 10x better at Rios than the other two restaurants. The steak tacos were out of this world. The chips and salsa... More

The food here was really good. The prices were outstanding and the service was also excellent. We sat on their screened in porch, which seemed far more quiet than the busy areas inside the restaurant.

When ever we are travelling down Hwy 94 we make a detour to Rios in New Buffalo. The food there is amazing and we are never disappointted. They now have combos with chips and a drink which we love because their chips are homemade and the salsa is always fresh. My son loves the chicken tacos and I can always... More

We had been told Rio's had great Mexican food so we headed to eat there, but had no idea you could only take it to go or sit at one of the mere 5 tables outside. We decided to eat elsewhere and come back when it wasn't so busy. Glad we came back, it was great. I had steak quesadillas... More

Just great. Friendly service and great food. Try the quesadilla, it's not what you think but like a taco with melted cheese. A little sad they took the chorizo off the menu. Being from Chicago, we've eaten tons of great mexican food.. and this is the best of the best! You know its good when you eating besides local workers... More

Our family has been going to Rio's for years and it still is top notch. We called ahead to place our order as it was a large order and we knew it would take a while. We arrived to pick up our order at the time they said and it was ready to go. Guacamole, quesadillas, tacos, burritos...all were great!... More
