Some food cold, I got wrong order. Even charro beans were bad. If you must go to this restaurant then have drinks and maybe an appetizer. Definitely wouldn't go again. Average service at best.

Enjoyed $100.00 in margaritas, but Christine the server wasn't happy and pushed us out. Guess we should have ordered food? I will take my business somewhere else. Riverwalk is beautiful even in January, but not busy like late spring or summer. Christine needs an attitude adjustment.

We were there on a business trip and someone else had recommended Rio Rio. It was terrible. The food was sub-par at best & when you're in San Antonio you're expecting decent TexMex. Not so. My advice, move on there are WAY better spots on the Riverwalk.

The food was well-priced and you get a lot for your money! The staff was also very friendly and accommodating to a large party.

When my sister and I visited San Antonio, we were DETERMINED to enjoy dinner on the Riverwalk with twinkling lights, boats drifting by, and great atmosphere. We bypassed several restaurants but were greeted by a staff member at Rio Rio who made sure we had a river view under the heaters. It was marvelous and relaxing. I really appreciate his efforts to make us comfortable. Menu options were amazing, as was the salsa. We never felt rushed, and our food was delicious.
