Two years ago just happened we are looking for Mexico food at downtown area and we saw a sign right at the corner says real tornado ( Ha! Ha! ), People working at the restaurant are very helpful. The place are nice and clean.The server recommend fajita and taco that was delicious. The price was fair. I'll go back again.

This restaurant is an amazing place to eat! The food is delicious, cheap, and they get it to your table pretty snappy. I recommend the steak fajitas, which come out in an iron skillet still sizzling from the stove. Also, a fan favorite there is the cheese dip. The only reason that I give four stars instead of five is... More

Great food, with great Portions. Mixed Fajitas are the best, and Margaritas can't be beat. Only slight knock, is they need more parking, besides that, A+

Best Mexican food in the Kanawha Valley. The service is always great and the food is always fresh and just as ordered. A frozen margarita will not disappoint you!

It was a fun atmosphere. Wasn't spectacular, but wasn't bad for nitro WV. I would go again, if they start serving real drinks. Food Was mediocre, but servers were nice.

I've been dining here for at least 5 years. Rio has the best fajitas and chimi's around and the service is always spot on. It can get a little loud when they are busy. I always point people to Rio when they are looking for good Mexican food!
