Neighborhood dine-in/carry out fast-Mexican restaurant - NO drive-through. Taco Rio features 5 combination dinners as well as a fairly-large ala carte menu. Can't really speak badly about anything on the menu, but my favorites are: beef tacos, beef enchiladas, the taco burger...and that's enough to fill you up on the first visit. The best thing about this place: you get... More

If you like a food joint & Mexican food you should really give this try. Good food, good price. I would go back. At the same time the atmosphere is a little rough ~ therefore the title "joint" is fitting.

The tacos are great, the service is usually pretty fast (they get really busy during the noon hour) and the prices are reasonable. Their pop is also better than most places. I usually just get water when I eat out, but I order a Dr. Pepper when I eat here because it just tastes better.

Have had the Rio for many, many years. Great family owned establishment. Great for take out! Enchiladas are the best. Tacos are great too.

I have had the plate that includes a beef enchilada, burrito, taco and beans or rice and I have also had the sancho, taco, taco burger and beans. We are stuffed when we leave. Very good food at a decent price.

We eat here at least once a week, the service is fast, courteous and consistent in quality! Peak times can get crowded so we try and get there before or after the crowds... You can pay less for the big fast chains or you can pay more for the expensive restaurants but if your trying to feed a growing teenager... More

The menu is not large, but the food it good. To me it's a twist on Mexican food with some unexpected flavored. You can order the tacos singular which is a nice way to try all the different ones they have. The sangria was poor.

You get a good value for your money here. I've been eating here since the 80s, and the food has always been good. I order a sancho or I get dinner #1/2--which is a lot of food! They have nice combos so you can get a sampling of different items. Nice sauce bar where you can choose what you like... More

This is a great place for fast food. They have a variety of mexican dishes and combination dinners. You can get free refills on your pop. Good quality food. They are very busy for lunch between 11:30-1:00.
