Description: New restaurant in little Madras serving fresh, gourmet Mexican and tantalizing margaritas. The food is unusual, beautifully presented and the owner is a gem. Cost is very reasonable. Meals are quite large (enough for 2).

Had to spend a night in Madras and thought I was destined for a fast food dinner. Perfect surprise at Rio. Wonderful service, really fresh tasting food - not your average Mexican

This place could compete with the top 5% of the restaurants in Portland. Probably the best Mexican food I have tasted...that includes San Diego.

Just on the main drag (hwy runs through town) sits this small restaurant. Unassuming, clean, comfortable setting. But once you get your plate of food...WOW! somehow transported to one of the top restaurants in the Bay Area or New York! The presentation is just spectacular and the taste is divine. Mouth watering thinking about the 2 meals i've eaten there. Wish I'd asked if that was one particular chef...whoever is creating these dishes has some amazing skill. Definitely one of if not the best meal i've eaten in Central Oregon and I live here. Just a hidden jewel. Hope it stays this way.

Nice to the kids, great sauce & salsa. The chips were warm & the service was great. I would definitely stop again to break up the trip to Bend.

Rio's is one of the best restaurants for Mexican cuisine that I have ever visited. Unique food and quaint setting. Don't miss it in Madras!
