Love this place. It has a great outdoor eating place that seems safe to eat at in this time of Covid 19. The tables are well spaced and there is a lot of shade. The waiters are knowledgeable and the food is outstanding. I really...think that this is a great place to get your Mexican food fix.More

The food here is just OK. It is WAY overpriced. We live in Burleson and would much rather go to Rio Bravo, Frescoe's, or Antonio's when we get the urge for some Tex Mex food. We felt like we were paying for the "fancy" ambiance...at Rio Mambo rather than for quality Mexican food. We tried it twice, and have not been back since.More

Try the glazed shanks. Very good. The food is served hot and the beverages cold. Don't forget to go for the brunch on Sat. or Sun.

First time here for lunch and it was great! The lunch menu had some different choices than a regular Mexican food restaurant; the service was great; the booths provided a nice place to catch up with a long time friend; and everyone's food choices were...excellent!More

Just landed in Texas and was looking forward to some TexMex. We waited at the unmanned welcome desk… for a long time. Two waiters came and looked at us and walked away. We walked around the corner a couple times just so that the staff...could perhaps see customers had arrived, and eventually asked a waitress if we could sit down, to which she replied, “yeah yeah, someone will come.” We decided to finally leave because no one ever came to help. The manager did come as we were headed out (as well as a few wait staff) and his sole response was “I’m sorry that happened’ while one of the wait staff said, with earbuds on, that he “was going to get someone.” There are a plethora of TexMex restaurants in the area - perhaps try another, like we did, for a delicious evening out.More

First time to Rio Mambo in Burleson. We're seated at filthy table at first, then moved to another. Knife was dirty, thank goodness we didn't need one. Server kept asking if we were ready to order, even after I asked for a few minutes! Foods...was not worth the money, in fact it was over priced! Where to start... salsa, no taste. Beans, absolutely No taste!! Rice taste like it had been sitting out a while. Chicken was dry and bland. Shrimp were not flavorful. My son ordered beef enchiladas with queso and he received beef with red sauce. I was going to send back, but he dumped the queso he got for his chips on the enchiladas! I don't eat out very often and now I know why. For the price I paid, I should not have felt like I ate at taco bell!! Will NEVER go back!More

Wonderful, modern atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Their Queso Flameado is the best!! Love it!! Also, if you like really spicy salsa, they are great at it (you have to request it). The dishes that they are offer are good with decent prices.

Three of us stopped here for lunch. We all ordered something different, we all would have enjoyed our food more if it had come to the table hot. Our food was just warm. Loved their chips and salsa. Plus the waitress never offered to take...our empty plates when we were finished. We all ordered ice tea but only got tea had to ask for more ice. We're on the finch about coming back. There are better Mexican restaurants in Burleson.More

Stopped in for dinner our first night in town. I got the brisket tacos and they were GREAT! Chips and salsa were provided for free, though we opted for the additional queso dip, glad we did, it was really good. We did have a blip,...they brought out the wrong dish to my wife, however when we noted the mistake, they were lightning fast to bring the correct meal to her. Everything was hot and fresh and delicious.More

I met a long time friend and his family for dinner. I will say the salsa and chips were good. Everyone said their food was good. I had the beef fajitas and they were good. During dinner service was good. We asked for more drinks...as we were going to continue to sit and talk. The waiter brought drinks in to go cups. That is ok but we never saw him again. The plates for the main dishes were removed but no other ones. I guess we should have taken the hint to leave. They may have sold a desert or alcoholic beverage if he would have stopped by. On one the corners of the wall I could see a metal cornering covering the corner. However directly behind the chair where my friend’s child sat the cornering was missing and the left over glue was still on the wall. If it was me, I probably would not have used that table. There were plenty open on a Monday night.More
