We actually are there twice in the two days we were there. The first was just Cheese dip and the guacamole that was so fresh with chucks of avacado. We ate that twice and boy was it worth it. The fajitas didn't come out on a sizzling platter but they were still good

The salad was terrible. There was maybe 3 small pieces of lettuce, so when you mix it, you have a big glob of mush. I could not eat it. Spent 6.12, and had to throw it away. Yuck. Never again. If Rio Grand reads this, please put MORE lettuce in your salads. That's why it's called a salad.....not mush. Made... More

Have eaten here 4 times. Sometimes it's very good and sometimes just so-so. We do not care for their chips but the salsa is very good.

Rode out from Savannah yesterday seeking lunch. The trip advisor highest spot was closed on Sunday, so we just rode around looking. Rio Grande Mexican restaurant parking lot was packed so we stopped. Now it could have been one of few open on Sunday but turns out it was good! Service was a bit off but they were slammed so... More

Tried this as it was convenient to our hotel. The fish tacos were very good and my wife loved her enchiladas. We were greeted with salsa and chips and our server was very helpful explaining the menu items. Had t he fried ice cream for dessert and it was good although it could have used more cinnamon. The strawberry topping... More

Ate dinner here...place packed. Food mediocre. Had burrito special...came with just burrito with sour cream and something called guacamole. No beans or rice. Meat tiny chunks with mediocre flavor. Would not go back

Amongst all the Mexican Restaurants in the entire county, Rio Grande in Vidalia GA is always our top pick when we are in Toombs County. We have tried every other Mexican Restaurant in the vicinity and the only reason we are giving these guys one less star (4/5) is because their second location (which is only 3 miles away in... More
