    Big Tex margarita is delicious. Chicken fajitas are tasty, too.

    Rommy Sandhu · August 6, 2014
  • Manda P.

    Good beer is cheap during happy hour. Don't get the queso though.

    Manda Pros · March 29, 2014

    You definitely come here for the margaritas not the food.

    The upstairs bathroom has a giant mirror in front of the urinal. It's weird.

    Marg on the rocks. Just do it.

    Garth Englund · December 8, 2013
  • Miles M.

    One of our favorite places. Get a margarita, queso, and steak fajitas. Amazing.

    Miles Matthias · November 23, 2013
  • Kaila S.

    Shrimp tacos or guacamole tostadas. If you have more than two margaritas, you will be drunk.

    My tip for the Rio. If you want to eat dinner with your family DO NOT GO ON THE WEEKEND. Strong margaritas and so-so food turn this place into Jersey Shore after 10 p.m. Choose the right time 4 u.

    Come sample Rio Grande at Westword Dish on September 22 at Sculpture Park. To purchase tickets, visit!

    Big Tex Marg all the way. REALLY fast food, even friendlier service. And sit in Cereta's section!! She's an absolute doll!!

    Emily Taylor · August 22, 2013

    Get the steak nachos!!!

    Stay for the drink leave because of rude staff. I could of ordered three more margaritas but he never came back. What a shame.

    They sell the tacos à la carte during happy hour for $3-3.50. The smoked chicken rocked!

    Don't get the chile rellenos!!! Raw on the inside!

    Margarittas by the littas

    Mike Farris · November 24, 2012
  • Rebecca F.

    Obviously, you HAVE to order a Rio Margarita on the rocks with salt. Their specialty!

    Rebecca French · October 30, 2012
  • 🌸Michele M.

    I like the fish tacos with creme fraiche, but generally the food is not nearly as good as the margaritas and the atmosphere.

    🌸Michele May🌸 · August 5, 2012
  • Vain-Xavier L.

    Steak Tacos are GREAT. And musttt get a Strawberry Margarita. Get sugar instead of salt!

    Vain-Xavier Lang · July 29, 2012
  • Michael R.

    Don't go here on a schedule. They're slow.

    Michael Rose · July 18, 2012
  • Esther

    The food and margs are good. The patio is nice when the weather is decent. The service from both the bar and waitstaff was very slow. We were checked on less than 2 times an hour.

    Esther · June 13, 2012
  • Chris A.

    The steak quesadilla tastes like a cheeseburger. Or I'm just drunk.

    Chris Arneson · May 19, 2012
  • Andrew P.

    Bad food. If I wanted velveeta I'd buy it at the store.

    Good food... Great patio to drink margaritas

    Alexandre MOAH Ogata · April 27, 2012
  • Jaymi W.

    Best shrimp tacos everrrrrrrrr

    Jaymi Watchorn · April 19, 2012
  • Breezy P.

    Try the Man Berry Marg. then tell them how stupid it is to name their patio a separate name (Black Crow) and not to mention its not even open on a nice day.

    Breezy P · April 14, 2012
  • Anne M.

    Did you know this place has a 3-Margarita maximum? That's how strong and delicious. My suggestion: after a long day of classes...walk on over from campus and enjoy the happy hour here.

    Anne Marie · March 16, 2012
  • WW St.

    We know you have tried the Margaritas...but try pairing that with their Mahi tacos! Read more

    WW St. · March 15, 2012
  • Abbie S.

    Since they've expanded their outdoor patio, there is much more room! Check this place out on a nice day, walk there if you can so you can have their maximum 3 marg's.

    Abbie Sietsema · March 15, 2012
  • Scott S.

    The spinach enchilada makes a nice light lunch. Always perfect, as are the margaritas.

    Scott S. · February 21, 2012
  • Jason M.

    If you are trying to get hammered start here

    Jason McArdle · February 12, 2012
  • Gabe H.

    If you like the feeling of being on a boat drink 3 margaritas here!

    Gabe Hesse · February 11, 2012
  • Ethan H.

    So very good

    Ethan Holub · February 11, 2012
  • Aaron K.

    Ask for salsa atomica with your chips, then mix it with the regular salsa, it's spicy deliciousness.

    Aaron Kasten · January 30, 2012
  • Daniel M.

    Huevos ranchero after a hangover rocks! Best kept secret in LoDo! $6.95!

    Daniel Montano · January 22, 2012
  • Jean-Paul JP G.

    ask for the Tacos al Carbon "old school", my favorite! (it's not on the menu anymore!!!)

    Jean-Paul JP Gudka · January 13, 2012
  • Sonja K.

    Killer Margaritas.
