Being from New Mexico, where I grew up with really, really good "Mexican food". I have tried Rio Bravo and say they are pretty good. Not sure what they "red chile" sauce is seems more like a tomato base than an actual red chile pod, sauce. But I've learned not to order anything with red chile sauce. The thing I... More

From outside its just another restaurant in a line of many, we were hungry and it was late, but the food was better than expected. I didn't use the bathroom so I can't speak for the cleanliness, it was a quiet evening too so service was good too.

This was my forth visit. Good as the first three visits. They start you with fresh chips, salsa and been dip - all very good. The draft beer was cold and fresh. My entree was the Special Dinner, a combo of enchilada, chalupa, chili relleno, taco, tamale, beans and rice. All tasty. My wife and brother inlaw had a burrito... More

My husband and I stopped here after a day at the beach. When you walk in you're hit with the fun atmosphere of decorative walls and good music. Then you open the menu. With so many choices it's hard to pick. We had a create your own combo and let me just say the chicken quesadilla is to die for.... More

This has average food, is way too cramped and crowded. There's nothing special here to go through bad service and cramped quarters while trying to enjoy a meal. Not impressed

Food was ok, but not so good that I would recommend this restaurant to others. The black bean dip that came with the chips was good. Didn't try any other Mexican restaurants in the area, so maybe this is the best in the area, but if you love Mexican food, you'll probably be disappointed.

This is the hands down the best Mexican food around, I highly suggest trying this place out if you are in town or live nearby!
