Hi, thank you for your great review! We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience. Perhaps there was a miscommunication; we do have Moosehead on tap and we also have plans to expand our line of draught beers in the near future!

If you want the mouth-watering, falling-off-the-bone, finger-licking-up-to-the-knuckle and you could eat the sauce with a spoon type of ribs...here they are. The rib sauce is slightly spicy and served with great fries, baked potatoes or rice. This is a small, cozy restaurant with a fast...More

The ribs were good with spicy sauce but the half rack meal was mostly fries.The salad was ok but there were browned greens in the mix which is not ok for a restaurant. Not worth $20 for his meal.

Very good service but was somehow disappointed by the ribs. Not the same quality one can find in Texas. They are superior to le Baton Rouge.

We've visited Le Rio twice during our visits to Sauveur. The food is fantastic and the service is speedy and friendly. A great place for a casual dining experience on a warm summer evening.
