“One of my top 5 Billings eating experiences.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Awesome Margaritas, fun atmosphere, friendly service. Doesn't hurt that the female waitstaff is attractive. I enjoy the tuna appetizer and they have a delicious Margarita served with a bottle of Mexican beer inside it...you have to check it out yourself. GREAT beer selection, too. Fun for the kids.

“Excellent food and excellent appreciation/support to the military family/community.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

A friend and I had an excellent lunch and service. We didn't know at the time but my friend has a habit of showing her dependent ID card when she uses her CC, server told us we are entitled for a 25 percent discount with our military IDs so I showed my retiree ID ... that's hard to beat.

Highly recommend it!

I love the food, always great service. Live music in the bar is a relaxing touch. BEST Margaritas in Montana!

“Not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

We have tried Rio Sabinas twice now and ordered a variety of items on the menu, enchiladas, shrimp saltillo, tacos, chicken gabacho, and burritos. Both times we visited the food was not very good but the service has been exceptional. The first visit was shortly after they opened so we thought we would give it some time and try again. Unfortutnately the second trip was not any better. The food is rather bland and everything tastes pretty much the same. The enchilada sauce is like eating straight chili powder. The chicken gabacho tastes like italian chicken parmesan. The shrimp saltillo is overpowered by the bacon. The chips are good but the salsa is not. We will not return.
