Rio Bravo Restaurant Review

Food and service was excellent. However, the men's room was a disaster area. Sloppy, toilet paper and towels strewn about and the floor so slippery I almost fell. There's an old saying that you can tell how clean a restaurant is by the cleanliness of its bathrooms. Y'all failed this night but... read more

There's an old saying that you can tell how clean a restaurant is by the cleanliness of its bathrooms. Y'all failed this night but I'll give ya another chance.

This place was recommended by a local to us as the best Mexican food around and we were not disappointed. The two dishes we ate were both hot and well prepared with good flavor. As a visitor to the area we always try to find a place the locals eat and this is the spot!!

The food was amazing. We each had a combination plate and we're both very happy. The ground meat is smokey and delicious, the shredded beef was so tender and moist and the enchilada sauce had just three right amount of kick. Great atmosphere at lunch time and an excellent job by our server, Sandra!

Great food and great margaritas, which were two for one when we went. Fajitas are a favorite. They played the accordion for a birthday. Fun!

We ordered the fajitas and two margaritas. It was very tasty. OMG the margaritas came in a glass the size of a fish bowl! Great service and very affordable.

Food is consistent and good. Quickly prepared and is tasty. It is best Mexican in Gulf Breeze. Lunches are small portions but good

They have been here for close to 10 years and that's a long time to keep the locals satisfied. Always a good crowd and food is consistent. Staff is always friendly and attentive. Plenty of options to choose from.

Reasonably priced, friendly strip-mall type restaurant. Not bad food, although not great by any stretch. If you're in the mood for some fajitas it is fine- if you want a special dinner this is not the place.That's no knock on Rio Bravo- I just think it's rated a bit higher than it deserves.

Me and my family have eaten here many times, often as much as twice per month. There's nothing fancy about this place and the atmosphere reflects a basic family type of restaurant. The reason I recommend it so highly is purely about the food. The menu is surprisingly large, the food is VERY tasty, the portions are good sized, and... More

This is our "go to" restaurant. The food is consistently good. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the presentation is usually a little sloppy. Their plating needs work. Otherwise, the service has always been good and my wife LOVES their frozen mango margaritas.
