The two for one margaritas are a great value plus I love complimentary black bean dip! My favorite is the Tejas nachos!

And the black bean dip and chips was a good start. Then I saw "Civeche " I settled on shrimp over fish. It was phenomenal!!! The... More

Not bad. A decent but not flavorful Mexican place. The pork burrito was pretty good. The taco salad bowl was flat. An ok place but not worth the trip back.

First time at Rio and very pleased. Had the Carnitas and Tortilla soup. Both were very good. Best Carnita dish I've ever had. Price was very good also. Chips and salsa had just the right amount of kick and they added a warm black bean dip with the chips that was a surprise and great.

Found this on TripAdvisor on our stay at Pensacola Beach. It was a little farther away than we wanted to drive but the reviews were pretty good so we thought we would give it a shot. I am so glad we did!! First our waiter looked like Dave Navarro which was for sure a plus lol. I wanted some chunky... More

We have been going to this restaurant regularly for 3-4 years and the food and service have been great until recently. Not sure what has changed but the food quality has declined and a lot of the familiar faces have changed. I started to do a little research and found that the health department score had dropped to 70 but... More

I eat here once a month or so but may actually make it my go to Mexican restaurant after my last few visits. Food is good (4 stars just because I looooove Mexican food). There is not really a super standout Mexican place I've found here but this one is good and has a pretty good menu that includes more... More

Eat a lot of Mexican food and this is one restaurant I will return to when in Pensacola. Large and varied menu. Service by Luciano very good, my sister liked his arms. I ordered a combo, (2 enchiladas, taco, and chalupa). I will say that my dinner was only barely warm and I like my food really hot and steaming.... More

Excellent food. Excellent service! Chicken chimichanga filled with chicken and fried just right! Tamales very very good. Loaded with beef and not overloaded with masa. Salsa and queso perfect!

Arrive at Rio before the Friday crowds set in. I was at the mall and in the mood for Mexican so I chose Rio due to its close proximity to the mall. Got seated immediately. Waited on quickly and chips were brought in 5 seconds. I ordered the chicken fajita soft tacos. They returned in about 7 minutes with my... More
