Here's what I like about this place: the service is (usually) great, the price is right and the chile rellenos are yummy. You aren't going here for the ambiance or the romance. You are going here for a solid meal with some great spice.

I've been eating at Los Rios for years. The food is always consistently good, and the service is great. The red chile has a flavor that you can only find in northern New Mexico. I hope you like it hot!

My family and I were excited to try Los Rios after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, so we chose it over all the other restaurants in Farmington. We love to eat out and Southwestern/New Mexican food is our favorite. Unfortunately, our meals were mediocre at best. The food was fairly standard in flavor. It definitely left something to... More

We had read the reviews and their description of this spot and knew we had to try it. Consistent with the other great reviews, we would add our compliments. It is in a small strip mall and is closed for a portion of the afternoon but it was worth it to adjust our schedule with their dinner hours. My wife... More

This place is great for lunch or dinner. The portion sizes are just right. The wheat sopapillas are very tasty! The service was awesome!

Not the sort of Mexican food that is served in Columbus, GA! This was authentic Mexican fare and it was fabulous!

Looking for Mexican food with a New Mexican flair. Los Rios is for you. Locally owned, managed, and served with a smile. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. The chips and hot sauce are very tasty. Make sure you get which ever entrée covered in green chili. Wow! Soo Good! They have all the regular Mexican items along... More

Some of the best NEW Mexican food ever. Chips and salsa set the tone = good flavor and great heat, you don't get this from SYSCO! I had the chicken fajitas which were ample for 2 and SO good I had to double check to see if prime rib was mistakenly used. Brooke gave such great service that I will... More

This place is rated #12 out of 116 restaurants in Farmington and we had been referred a couple of times since moving to Aztec so we were excited to try it. Walking in, I wasn't sure I really wanted to stay. There was no music and the place was not romantic at all...florescent lights, bad carpet, in a strip mall.... More
