El Rio Verde is a tiny, authentic Mexican restaurant that offers value-priced located near Admiral and Trenton. Food is delicious! Good place for lunch. Kinda sketchy around dinner. However, a TOD officer and his wife came in while we were there. The restaurant also has...More

We chose this place due to good reviews. My family liked it but I was underwhelmed. The salsa tasted like hot marinara sauce. I ordered enchiladas and they were very dry as if they were made ahead of time. They had Parmesan cheese on top...More

Visited EL Rio Verde after reading all of the reviews on trip advisor. You could tell by the crowd it was a very popular place... slightly off the beaten path. This is authentic Mexican food, not Tex Mex. It's a small place, nothing fancy. The...More
