My Husband and I went to the Rio Grande Diner this past weekend. The waitress was very attentive and my chicken was excellent, however, my husbands stuffed flounder was slightly over cooked. They also had a problem with their cash register, which caused everyone to pay cash... they couldn't accept credit cards. I thought they would post a sign to... More

Stopped in on the way to North Wildwood for breakfast. Place was busy, but was seated upon arrival and the service was great. Not much of a wait for beverages or food. No waiting for refills of coffee or tea, food was hot and plenty of it. Very surprised with the amount of bacon slices received, usually get 2 or... More

This was a great find on our way home from wildwood. (just past the parkway entrance) Excellent service, big portions, friendly staff and very good diner food. Also, welcome inexpensive prices after an expensive few days in wildwood restaurants.

One of them places that you always see alot of cars in the parking lot. Decided to give it a try. Service was slow and the menu was overpriced for diner food. Also food wasn't all that great. Won't be returning.

We ate at the Rio Grande Diner for breakfast. This is definitely a diner style atmosphere. Food is of average price. Wait for food was longer than average but the food was awesome! We had French toast, eggs, bacon, toast and Belgian waffle. No complaints on anything. We would definitely return. This is not a quick in/quick out diner but... More

Rio Grande is consistently good food with quick service. They are a little pricey but I think it's worth it. We usually go here for breakfast.

Slow service was a problem. Place was packed and we waited while seated at the counter. It seemed under-staffed.

Our family of 4 was going out to supper and we remembered that my grandma and pap had eaten here before, and they said they had a great experience. We decided to try it. They had an extensive menu, many things sounded good. We ordered, and got served within 20 minutes. We ate our meal, and it was awesome. We... More
