With a menu much like Chipotle, only Rio's is much better, and I like Chipotle! My favorite is tacos, soft corn tortillas, spicy pork, with everything and rice & beans - but there are lots of combinations. The place doesn't look like much, so I've driven past Rio's without stopping for years. DON'T make the same mistake I did! If... More

I tried out Rios for the first time in August. Everything was delicious and flavorful. They have a simple menu that provides plenty of choice. I was getting my food for take away and found that it took a bit of time to get my order, but it was well worth the wait. I'll definitely return here during my next... More

On our way back to Chicago we decided to stop and try Rios out. There prices are a bit above average for a fast food restaurant but the portions are large. We had the taco and burito combination and they were very good. What a beautiful day and great lunch. As another reviewer said, don't drive here for the food,... More

Not much variety in menu but small kitchen and footprint. Speaker in drive through has rag or paper stuffed around it and you may think no one hears you. Food ok, no salsa bar here like the one in stevensville so disappointed.

Very modest looking "shack" with a drive through, but some of the most phenomenal tacos, with different "degree" of sauces I've tasted. Definitely a recommend...

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
