We go here often and the food is consistently good! Food is done quickly. Unlimited complimentary chips & salsa. Decent prices. Pictured is a taco salad (without shell).

i have been to this restaurant for many years and it has never disappointed....ever i havent had many items on the menu, but i would have to say that the carnitas are the standard by which any order, anywhere, should be compared to (in fact, they are so good, that any other place that i have ordered carnitas, they have...

Anyone who doesn't give this place a perfect rating is a severe complainer who can't ever be satisfied. This place has the best homemade food, they give you chips and salsa for free with your meal and you can eat as much as you want. By the way, salsa is homemade and addicting so beware. They have beer and margaritas... More

We used to love this place. My son had a track meet near bye and we decided to treat him to Rio Grande. What has happened? Taco Tuesday. Buy two and get one free. Well, I used to love their fish tacos. Tonight I would have gladly paid full price to get something I liked. Fish tacos used to be... More

I had beef tacos and my husband a chimichanga. They were ok, nothing to rave about. My husband was actually I'll the next day. Not going back.

It is a rather simple self service restaurant with a good honest attitude. The food is good. The grilled fish tacos were well done. We also tried the vegetarian chimichanga which was polished off. Food was fresh and well cooked. The restaurant was a bit dark ans made it look gloomy. But otherwise good. I would recommend a take out... More

We have been here a few times now, and will definitely be returning. They have a wide selection of food to provide something for everyone. Being gluten-intolerant, I was very happy to see gluten-free options on their menu as well. The prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is very nice!

The owners of the restaurant are two young brothers originally from Houston, TX. Their family is famous in Houston because the grandmother has a chain of great tax-mex restaurants. The food is in a word: amazing. My husband and I both had chicken dishes. I had the Cadillac Nachos, my husband the chicken fajitas. The chicken was so tender you... More

My wife and I love Tex-Mex food , but somehow kept driving past this place without ever stopping. We went to dinner there last night and had a great time. Informal, but clean and fairly authentic "cantina" atmosphere. Food is great. Well-prepared with top quality ingredients. They also carried a good supply of Mexican beers that are almost impossible to... More
