Was looking for a Mexican restaurant while driving to our hotel. We saw the El Rio Grande and the parking lot was packed. A comment was made that it must be good if the parking lot is this full. We circled the lot to find a space and went inside. We were seated almost immediately by the friendly host. The... More

We had a birthday lunch here since it was the favorite restaurant of a co-worker. The food was good and the wait staff was great. Our waiter even helped one co-worker figure out a special dish he wanted prepared. the problem came at the end of the meal when our manager went to pay. The young lady who was working... More

Went to dinner with a few business associates from the area. Food and drinks were very good and typical Mexican fare. Not a huge beer list but good enough. Don't order ginger ale because that's not big in the south and they have no clue here what that is. Otherwise, prices are reasonable and service was better than other reviews... More

The most underwhelming wait staff experience. Ever. On Monday May 2nd, myself and 2 other women stopped at El Rio Grande for a late lunch at 2pm. We walked in, and there was someone in front of the cashier’s counter – could not tell if it was a departing customer. The cashier made no effort to look at or greet... More

The drinks were great but the service was slow. It might have been because we had an extra large party. Now once the food arrived it was hot and good.
