Reservations made for 6:30. Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Placed drink order and that arrived reasonably quickly but the rest....well, let's just say we were there until 9:00 pm. The food is mediocre at best. The waitress was nice and got blamed by the owner for the delay. Clearly there was a problem somewhere. After waiting about... More

Dear Mr Eric: I agree that the there was a problem with the service as the server did not call the table to kitchen staff or kitchen did not hear table being called.

I wrote a review a few years back and have since visited only a few more times as I have been finding that the service and the ribs have been getting worse with each visit! I decided to give it another shot thinking they just had a couple of bad days in the last 6 to 8 months. I was... More

Dear Woods: I apologize for the service and the meal. Sometimes this could happen, I believe if you would have mentioned to server or even me as I was there that meal was not up to par, we would have certainly replaced your order. You mentioned that you were there a few times in the past few years, if you... More

I am not a meat eater but the fries were delicious and my bbq chicken was tender and juicy. The bbq sauce on both the ribs and the chicken was amazing. The meal comes with appetizers, soup, salad and dessert, all of which were nondescript.

We are two families traveling together and looking for a kid friendly restaurant. The food was fantastic. The ribs are mouthwatering and the meat melts of the bone. Kids loved the place and staff was great. Highly recommended

Tried Rio for 1st time for dinner. Nice outside terrace and fantastic service. It's nice to eat somewhere where the staff actually enjoy their jobs....The food was great, the beer was frothy and cold. Worth a visit.

Came here for dinner, the other night. Service was good, and my dinner was good, and priced reasonable. I had spaghetti, but I wish they would have served bread with it. Just the right amount, my friends had other dishes, and they were pleased. I would come back.......
