THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rio Grande Cafe Restaurant Review

: A sure crowd-pleaser, the Rio Grande seems to delight patrons of all ages with its lusty fare and lively atmosphere: It’s one of the few local places where high decibel levels really don’t distract. As expected, weekend nights are jam-packed. But gratis chips-and-dip combos are usually served before the rounds of enchiladas, tacos, sizzling fajitas, chiles rellenos and even broiled quail emerge with baskets of freshly baked tortillas from the kitchen. We recommend the luncheon El Dorado soft tacos and at night select a tortilla soup, carne asada main course and the outstanding chocolate flan for dessert. Other locations.
