99c marguerites and good food

Tuesdays are 99c marguerites nights. Maybe a little dilute but good. Could do a 2 for 1 regular drink or beer if preferred. Actually very good Mexican food. The Chimichanga was very good. Large chunks of flank steak, tender; not ground up beef paste like some places. Serve warm chips with bean dip... read more

I've been to this place 4 times now and it's the bee's knees. If I could recommend one thing off the menu get the Texas fajita quesadilla. Steak, chicken, shrimp, cheese peppers, and onions for like $9 and change its amazing! The servers have been great and even on margarita night we have never had to wait.

While on vacation we stopped in here for dinner one night. Myself, my wife, our 6 year old, and 13 month old. The free chips and salsa were nice and the free black bean dip was excellent. Our waitress actually brought out a second bowl of the bean dip (no charge) after I mentioned I liked it. Our 6 year... More

Three of us ate here on a busy Friday night. We were seated right away, and served salsa and chips. They also serve a black bean dip with the chips, which was pretty good. Large selection of items on the menu, and reasonably priced. Large portions, too. Even as busy as they were, the service was good. Only complaint would... More

Really good inexpensive cuisine. We always bring out of town guests for a culinary delight in Mexican fare.

Rio Bravo is the best Mexican place in the area. The food is always good. I can't get enough of that bean dip served with the chips, and the fajita quesadillas are awesome! Fun atmosphere...lots of colors and painted murals. It's small and can get very busy, but never a long wait. The greeters at the door are always so... More

We dine here frequently. This is some of the best Mexican food within a hundred mile radius. We used to live in W. Texas so we are keyed in to this type of cuisine. The chile rellenos are some of the best I've had outside of New Mexico. They are not fried in a batter but broiled. I like them... More

We had a wonderful meal (were there for lunch) that was gently priced and served hot. Service was a little slow (they were busy) but the food was delicious. The bean dip was a perfect extra and the table salsa nice and spicy. We can wholeheartedly recommend the chicken fajitas. In fact, it is hard to remember if we’ve had... More

The 2X1 drink specials are terrific, and their Margaritas rock. Just wish that the restaurant wasn't in a WalMart plaza. Would like to see this eatery as a stand alone restaurant. Recommended.

Every time we've gone it has always been good. I have tried just about everything on the menu and never got a bad meal. Chips come with salsa and great refried beans, both have a great taste! Employees are always friendly and attentive.
