Food was ok but bland. However, service was terrible. Not only did our waitress not get our order right (wrong meat in 2/3 dishes) but had to read the soda selection from the machine, leave to find out the special, and tried to remove a margarita that was only 1/2 finished. Also, the hostess told us it was happy hour... More

Casa del Rio located in a former tavern called The Yellow Front. surprisingly it didn't have a yellow front. The restaurant has a menu that is the same as hundreds of kinda mexican places. The food is above average, so are the waitresses. There is outdoor eating,weather permitting. There is a variety of Mexican beers, as well as of course... More

Casa del Rio offers very good, authentic Mexican food and colorful atmosphere. They've made some improvements throughout the years, all for the better. Sit on the patio if the weather allows, especially to enjoy some margaritas with friends. Also a good choice for lunch because the service is quick and it's a great value. Nice service and delicious food!

Good, standard Mexican fare. Fun atmosphere. Service was great. The frozen margarita's on special were a little weak. I guess that's to be expected when they are on special. Made the mistake of getting the grilled chicken salad. The chicken had a weird seasoning on it. The rest was lettuce, onion and avacado, which also tasted a little weird. Tostada... More

This is our new favorite spot. The food has been consistently good and even better than that, the bartender, Mike, is an artist in the drink department. We highly recommend his Berry Mojitos. They are so light and refreshing. For food, I loved the Carne Asada. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection!

This was my second visit, first time for lunch. Hands down terrific Mexican food. Chips and salsa was good (not heavy on cilantro). I got a combo with a beef corn tortilla taco and a chicken enchilada. It was really good! Hubby had steak fajitas and he said they were a 6 out of 10. Waitress was attentive and polite.... More

Very consistent food and great margaritas. sometimes they need to pay a little better attention to service - especially at lunch.
