Great food

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... read 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

We have visited New Buffalo several times & we are glad we found Rios. It's the best Mexican food that we have every had! Everything is so fresh & tasty. The first couple times we visited we ordered too much since the portions are so large. If there's a new menu, I didn't notice the diff; still great! I think... More

I have in the past give this place 5 stars and raved about the local "taco shack" with fresh food and great menu. The menu is all new and now looks like a fast food taco place. The fish tacos are gone as are many of the other dishes that made this place special. Very disappointed about the menu and... More

Rio's lovers ATTENTION! After 15 years- the MENU CHANGED!! Just ate here over the Memorial Day weekend. The good news- it's still great!! Better than waiting FOREVER in town. The Bad News? Tortas, tamales, chorizo are GONE! The menu has been streamlined somewhat like a Chipotle's. Pick your meat (Steak, Spicy Chicken, Pork, Ground Beef), pick your presentation (Bowl, Taco... More

We called for a take out on Saturday for a group of folks at our house. Although a little confusing at first trying to place our order, everything went well. They said 20 minutes. I arrived in 15 and they were not all caught up. But, they were very pleasant, asked to make sure we got what we ordered. They... More

As I have stated in my other review. This place is a great urban style taco shack with FRESH ingredients and prepared as you wait. The New Buffalo location is closed for the winter, however if you still want great mexican food they have two other locations close by. The one in Michigan City about 15 minutes away is also...
