If you are looking for a fun, energetic place to have a great margarita, The "Rio", as it is called by locals, has it! The patio is great in warm weather, and food is a good portion for the money.

Good place to visit if you are in town and want to see what the FC scene is like. Food is ok - not the greatest tex-mex you'll ever have, but pretty decent. Great drinks, though - they are known for their margaritas, and they won't disappoint

We loved our happy hour on the patio with excellent margaritas and chips/guacamole/queso. We all drank the fresh fruit prepared margaritas (no sour mix.) Very good and strong! Lovely back patio! Also tried the draft beer with infused jalapeno. It was spicy!

Great drinks and the burritos were wonderful. If you go on Friday or Saturday night, plan on a significant wait.

Don't miss the amazing margaritas at the Rio when you visit Ft. Collins! We make a regular sojourn to cruise the great Old Town Ft. Collins shops and finish with some innovative food and Rio margs. If you like it spicy be sure to order your food with spicy green chili (hot!). Some of my old favorites (pork tacos) have recently gone a little off scale in creative cookery for my tastes, but you can always order the basic cheese and onion enchiladas, crispy rellenos, or a good old burrito (smothered, of course). They keep the great chips and very good salsa coming to your table while you sip and peruse the menu. One of Ft. Collins best!
