Must try!

I have lived in the area for seven years and just recently went inside this place. The food, drinks, and service were very good. Not at all what I expected from a place that advertises on the sidewalk the two-for-one margaritas.

Went there last month. The food was okay and the service was fast but the margaritas are awful. Not sure what they're putting in it but doesn't taste like tequila!

The service was very good and the facility was very clean. There are some very interesting variations on the typical Mexican-American fare, and it was great to see more fresh/non-fried options than one would normally find! All of our food came out hot and with a very nice presentation, and the waiter was very attentive. No complaints in any of... More

My family eats at Rio at least twice a month. Great service and AWESOME food. Try the chicken fajitas or burritos supreme, you won't be disappointed.

This has become a regular stop for my husband and I on our way home from work. This restaurant has many good qualities. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes, even on a busy day. Margaritas are always 2 for 1 and frozen margaritas are always available. The food is delicious. AND, this restaurant has consistently received... More

We went on Tuesday which happened to be 99 cent margaritas night, the magarita on the rocks was good but small. The food came out hot and fresh fairly quickly. Our only complaint is that they have tables & chairs so close together that everyone constantly had to squish in to let servers or other patrons by, it really was... More

A real authentic Mexican restaurant. Everything was very good. Felt like like you were in a restaurant in Mexico. Has Mexican Music and sport tvs. Service was very attentive w/o being overwhelming. Overall a great experience.

I am VERY picky about Mexican food. The best thing on this menu is the Chili relleno. The fajitas are good too. I do not like the tacos but this is only a personal evaluation. My wife loves the Tacos al Carbon. the prices are reasonable and the servers are very friendly and helpful. I had nachos supreme yesterday and... More

Have gone here for lunch and dinner,and always found the food to be excellent,the service to be good,and the prices reasonable.The fact that it is usually packed on a fiday night,tells you we're not the only ones who like.They have accommodated our large group,but are generally set up for couples and family.

Everything here is good. The prices are good and you leave with that "too much to eat" feeling but if you want an authentic Mexican lunch or dinner this place will take care of your cravings. The wait staff is pleasant enough and will accommodate your individual tastes.
