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.

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

Got a French dip to go, it was very good. Apple pie was also good but I didn't like the ice cream very much. The staff was very friendly and my food was ready in ten minutes at most.
