This is a great place to eat. Kind of tucked out of the way off of the main street. IF you find Big Lots or JoAnn Fabrics, this restaurant is in the same shopping area. The chips and salsa are good for munching on until your food arrives. Staff are friendly. You can't go wrong.

Food is extremely bland. My food tasted like it was Microwaved or re-heated two day old food. Waitresses are very inappropriate with males and dress provocative, not appropriate for "family dining" waited 45 minutes for food with no refills while waitress sat down at a table full of men flirting. Horrible horrible horrible food and service!

I'm in town on business and was looking for some authentic Mexican. I decided to try this place based on the reviews. I walked in and there are two pretty blond waitresses. I asked for a margarita and they don't have any. They do have beer so not a total loss. I think we have more authentic Mexican in the... More

When we go to Farmington for a shopping trip we love to eat at Los Rios. The red sauce is the best in the four corners area. It has just the right burn with great flavor at the same time. We have been coming to this restaurant for many years but have been away from the area for a while.... More

Whole wheat sopapillas, deliciously seasoned. Tacos are my favorite! Chile rellenos are my husband's favorite. Salsa is very spicy...make sure you have something to drink before diving into the chips and salsa. Locals know where to find this restaurant..but if you are a visitor - best to ask for directions. Worth the search

This place can be tricky to find, but worth it. The food isn't greasy & they have options for health conscious diners. If you are not used to eating food with chili, get the red or green on the side. The sopapillas are all wheat & taste great. Overall, it's great food with great service. The hours can be a... More

Great Relleno's with green sauce and outstanding guacamole. The hot sauce is great and needed every tea refill to quench the heat. Tea glass never hit empty. Awesome. Staff were all very nice and friendly.

We travelled about 500 miles to visit scenic parks and mountains in the region. We have eaten at Mexican restaurants all over the southwest. This one was mediocre at best and nothing to write home about. The signs said "Fine Dining," but to us, that doesn't mean plastic cups and cheap paper napkins. If you were to compare this to...

We drove from Albuquerque to Salt Lake City yesterday. The night before, we really wanted good Red/Green New Mexican food but were disappointed by a bad meal in Clovis. We knew we would be through Farmington at lunch time, and TripAdvisor rated this place #2 in town. TripAdvisor came through again. It takes a couple of turns off the main... More
