We highly recommend Rio. The churrasco steak was good as well as the tacos. They have a good wine list. Looks like it a nice spot for dancing also.

Surprised to see so many enthusiastic reviews - this place was just ok. Almost empty when the nearby restaurants were pretty full. That should have been our first hint but it got good reviews (thanks, TripAdvisor) and the prices are decent. The chips came with...More
