This is a surprise to find a urban type taco shack just off of downtown New Buffalo. The place is a walk up and order and then take with or they have tables outside. I had the fish tacos and they were good. I also had a small side of guacamole and was surprised how fresh it was. They make... More

This place was so great that we went back three times in one weekend. Highlights included the tamales and the tacos, and the mexican sodas were a nice treat (bottled Jarritos). Prices are low and great (consistent with street tacos elsewhere). Everything is made right in-house, so for those of us with allergies, it's comforting that the employees can tell... More

My rule for Mexican and BBQ restaurants is as follows - If the place looks like it should be condemned, the food will condemn your tongue to happiness. Rios fits the bill. It's this tiny little shack you'd probably drive past if you didn't know better. But thanks to Yelp, I knew better! I rocked the #4 combo - A... More

Order superb, authentic Mexican food, take it to your picnic table, and enjoy beach summer livin'! Everything was great, staff was cheeky, lots of fun. Reasonably priced food, more refreshing than going to a fancy restaurant. (Minus the margaritas.)

Fresh and made when you order. The best corn chips & guacamole. We ordered the "junior" chicken burrito with everything and it was ginormous and plenty for 2 to share(they will cut it in 1/2 for you). The seating area is old fashioned picnic tables & benches including a miniature one if you have children. All the sides are great... More

Don't be put off by the lack of atmosphere at this drive-up. The food is fab. The chips and guac are spectacular. There's a drive through for call-in pick-up orders. The place is mobbed in summer which can creat a bit of a wait, but worth it. Always go to a place where you see plenty of people eating their... More

I was a little hesitant to stop here, just because of how it looks. It's a small, older looking building with only benches outside to eat at, but my husband really wanted to try it. I'm so glad he did! The food was great and there was so much of it. Well worth the price. I would recommend this to... More
