We tried to eat here since it was on lodge site however, a cook dressed man seated us on a TINY table. We asked for drinks and said it would be a while since they were very short staffed in the kitchen, she was helping him. We said that would be fine to wait, however he came back saying they... More

The service was amazing food was very distinctive and unique. Every time I go in to get Pollo Amalina "Which is his grandmas recipe" it taste the same every time I go! The Servers are very nice and humble but can be a kaotic place because of the lack of help. But the food is worth the chaos!

I sat near the fireplace inside and a waiter came very fast with a nice smile. I then got chips and salsa with water about 3 minutes later. The waiter checked on me frequently and I got my order as soon as I was ready. I ordered a pork enchilada, which was amazing and looked beautiful by the way, and... More

Our Waiter was excellent, the food was poor. Not served hot...Five Pine Brewery had better mexican food. The last time we were here it was much better. Now, the Margarittas were excellent.

My wife and I eat here every time we come through Sisters. This restaurant is not for your standard "American Mexican" food lover. You will not find meals so buried in cheese that it does not matter what is underneath. No canned sauce either - all of the sauces are hand made from Mexican family recipes. That being said, it...

The Perfecta is just what the name implies - perfect margarita. Great balance of fresh muddled fruit and tequila. The food is fresh and made to order - no lard used BONUS! The cascabel salsa is hot and delicious.

We enjoyed our dinner at Rio, although the service was slow. Two servers were not adequate for the number of parties that were there. They did the best that they could, and the food was above average, but it was a long wait.
