Small cute little place on the main street. We took our food to go so we can't rate the dining in experience, but the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the ribs and fries where very good. I wouldn't say it is the #1 restaurant in St Sauveur, but the ribs were well worth the visit.

Great family place for dinner! Simply the best baby back ribs in the Laurentians. The beef sandwich is also a "must try" ;)

The ribs are excellent but forget the rest of the menu as it's frankly sub-par. The fries were just okay. I must admit there is no real upside to go there rather than BR, beside the charm. We'd go again but only if baton Rouge is too crowded.

We shared a dinner there, I would expect that the #1 restaurant wouldn't cheap out on basic things, like processed bacon bits on their Caesar salads but food was good. Just not #1 good and value for money was also not as expected.

First off, it's an old building that adds a lot of charm. Being old, it was freezing inside. The waitress even joked after I suggested a fire place saying the house might catch fire. They say their ribs are their specialty. Honestly, they tasted like ready cooked ribs bought at the grocery store. Nothing out of the ordinary. They also... More

Great ribs! Nice place, good service. As advertised the ribs were great. The wait staff was pleasant and it was quiet enough to have a conversation.

Friendly little place with good food and excellent service. The meat was done perfectly according to our order. Not many choices on the wine list but prices were reasonable. Waitresses were very nice and helpful. Would certainly come back next time we're in Saint Sauveur.

Awesome place to go with the family. We are a family of three. Our 12 year old loved the ribs so much, we went back to Le Rio twice after our first visit. The service is excellent and the food is fun and tasty. The ribs are a house favorite but the menu has enough variety.
