We love this place. The food is consistently good and the service is fast. My husband likes to time the number of seconds between walking through the door and sitting at the table with hot chips placed in front of him. It is generally less than a couple of minutes, but sometimes it is freakishly fast- like 12 seconds! And the chips are the best anywhere. THey bring you a basket of chips with a carafe of salsa and little bowl to pour the salsa into. We also always order some quaquamole to go with it. Most people in my family get the fajitas- of course served sizzling at the table. They are loaded with vegetables and are always enough to take some home for lunch the next day. I get the Pollo Asado with a side of corn tortillas- it is an enormous pieces of marinated chicken breast pounded flat with salad, rice and other veggies on the side. Highly recommended!!

We had an excellent Mexican dinner here tonight. The service was friendly and fast. They have an extensive menu, it all looked good. We had the Rio Quesadilla and it was very good as was the Pollo Adobe. The portions were generous and the food was very good. The atmosphere is nice, nothing too exciting but very pleasant. We will definitely be returning and would recommend the Rio Grande to anyone looking for a good Mexican meal.

We've actually watch this restaurant change 3 times in the past few years and this is by far the best. First of all the service is really great. My son went there for his birthday and was highly entertained by the sombreros he got to wear and the fried ice cream. The food is tasty too and well priced. It's right by the movie theater so we always stop and fill up before a show.
