Rio has an excellent lunch special... $4.95 for lunch menu #1-7 and a soft drink or tea. Salsa is really good too.

Super good food, service and atmosphere. Taco Tuesdays and drink specials. They aim to please. Love the Guacamole.

Read reviews, which were very kind. The service is great... The food, not so much. Carne Asada should not be tough as shoe leather. Flour tortillas were rubbery. The margaritas were sour, could not taste the tequila.

We were passing through at lunch time. Having never been in the area before we didn't know good from bad. The parking lot was quite full so we pulled in and gave it a try. We were seated immediately. Chips and salsa were brought to our table in a timely manner while we looked over our menu. I was torn... More

This place is an establishment if you grew up in Eden! We used to go here all the time in high school. The staff is different but the food is just as good. Definitely get the cheese dip!

We are quite frequent diners at Rio. I love the staff and their kindness in all our needs for parties, take out orders, big orders for the company, and for our individual family dinners. I have used the side party room on several occasions and they have been more than kind to allow us to decorate early, bring Christmas gifts,... More

Stopped in on a Monday evening with a co-worker while in the area for work. We had a good meal, the service was fine, and the price about right. There was nothing exceptional about the place...but it was good!

Stopped in for Dinner while out of town. Food was Ok but place is a bit strange. First off, all employee's make believe they don't speak English till after you order??
