“It was a nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

It was Sunday afternoon, there were about a few people there. We were seated, and the host was very polite. Our waiter was very tentive. We like to get the ticket when we get our food so we can leave when we are done. This happens at a lot of restraunts when we pay the service stops. But I called one of the host to get some tea and she was on it. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We will be back. I would have like to have seen the manager walking around checking on customers.

“Really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

As a northern New Englander, I always look forward to "real" Mexican food when I visit Texas. Colleagues who are from the area recommended Rio Mambo and it didn't disappoint. The fresh salsa kept coming, the margaritas were good and the vegetarian enchiladas were delicious. I especially enjoyed the refried beans - they had a creamy consistency and the taste was great. I would definitely find my way here again.

“Quesadilla mucho grande. Fajitas good.”

Good food and superb service. The wait staff are very pleasant. Bean soup and fresh homemade guacamole were good too. Great place to hang with friends.

“Best Weekend Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We have been to this restaurant several times and thought it was only OK until we tried their Mambo King Brunch...let's start with UNLIMITED mimosas!! They bring you chips and salsa, then a plate of perfectly ripe fresh fruit, followed by your entree which is served with fabulous roasted potatoes and refried black beans, and last a wonderful cinnamon roll. You totally get your money's worth for $12.95. I highly recommend the brunch, but I really don't want you to go because then there will be a crowd when we arrive...LOL!
