I really had my expectations high from reading all the glowing reviews. I got the wet burrito as everyone raved about and it was just OK. The fajita meat was sparse and many pieces were tough and chewy and not much meat. The chorizo in my husbands was very bland and lacked flavor. The table sauce was just bad! No... More

One of my favorite places to take out of town guests. The restaurant is definitely off the beaten path and would be hard to find if you weren't familiar with it. It cannot be seen from a main road. Food is excellent. Wet burritos are wonderful as are the veggie burritos. Very good tacos and guacamole. The chicken tortilla soup... More

My wife and I wanted Mexican food...not being local we turned to TripAdvisor for recommendations. El Rio Verde didn't disappoint with great food choices. We had salsa and guacamole to start with. The salsa is ok...not much to write about there. The guacamole is terrific with chunks of tomatoes and onions. I had the Wet Burrito with steak. It is... More

The atmosphere here is super fun and the food is amazing. It's cheap and low key, everyone we interacted with was very friendly. I would definitely come back

Love their "wet" burrito - lots of different meats available. Service is fast and friendly, even during lunch. Limited seating, but even at lunch the tables move relatively quickly.

If you love authentic Mexican food this is your place. It is a small business off of downtown, but it is big in flavor! They have so many wonderful items on the menu it was hard to choose. I ended up with a shrimp burrito "wet" style...meaning covered in red sauce with guac, sour cream, and cheese. It was amazing.... More

Got two smothered burritos for $14. Was authentic, delicious and well worth the drive. The area is a kinda rough would probably go back again in the daytime but we went at night and it was ok. Salsa is great. Friendly staff
