We like going here. You can pick the food and drink up or eat inside or outside. This last time I went to pick up, the social distancing wasn’t great but I wasn’t staying to eat. The servers all had masks and gloves. The food...is great and we love the multiple flavors of margaritas available. Prickly pear is my favorite. Like that you can get them to go. The food portions are huge. We like the Chile verde and the California burrito. If we order one burrito both of us can eat off of it. Definitely recommendMore

Servers were very friendly and accommodating. They knew the ingredients in the different dishes. The chips were served nice and warm. Their salsa had great flavor but not overpowering. And the chips were served with two options of dips. We liked it so much the...first time, we went back later in the week.More

The kids love this place as much as we do. The food is delicious the service is fast and the kids would bathe in the cheesy dip if we’d let them.

We went for the first time after my Mothers Memorial last August. There was 23 family members and they didn't know we were coming. They Put our tables in a line so we could talk to each other. We ordered margarittas by the pitcher and...they were great. We ordered the enchilladas and we always have an egg on top. They gladly accommidated us. Everybody there said what an awsome place to eat. They play Mexican music and the food and atmosphere was great. We have since gone back many times. They also give military discounts.More

My friend and I went to Rio Grande for a late lunch yesterday when our first choice was closed. We were celebrating a late Christmas! Our staff member, Toby, was a joy. He helped us choose a lunch special which fit each of us perfectly....I got the fajita mix (last one down on the right side of the lunch menu). Oh my word! The serving was huge!!! I was so transfixed I forgot to take a photo. Not only did it have a sizzling plate of steak, chicken, shrimp, green peppers, onions, and more. There was a second plate of refried beans, salad greens w tomatoes, and rice. I liked the fact that the food was not highly spiced but there were many hot sauce options on the table for those who wanted more zing. There was enough for two people! My friend got rolled up things (sorry forgot the name) with a sauce over it. She loved hers, too. The restaurant was not very busy so we sat there for another hour or so chatting. Every staff member smiled when looking at customers. Wow, that is refreshing. We will definitely go again.More

We will not be going back. On one of the hottest weekends of the year, the A/C was broken inside the restaurant. The food was just average. The margaritas were too sweet, couldn't taste the booze. Staff was friendly, only plus.

Did a last minute change to dinner plans so stopped in here to try it out. There are already several pretty good Mexican restaurants in the area and this one recently opened for business. I ordered a California burrito which was huge! Very good, in...fact I couldn't eat the whole thing which made a nice treat for lunch the next day. My wife had 3 enchiladas and she was very pleased. She couldn't finish hers either so safe to say, large portions served here. They offer a military discount which was nice touch. Very reasonable prices for the portions served. This will be one of my favorites.More
