We eat here about once per month. The waiters always start a bit grumpy, but warm up quickly with a few words of badly pronounced Spanish. I have an Huevos Rancheos (ranch eggs with a tortilla, pico de gallo, delicious refried beans). My wife has a chicken frittata, which arrives sizzling hot with the usual accompaniments. There is always enough... More

This used to be our favorite Mexican restaurant in town until a year or so ago when we had a couple terrible experiences. Since it had been so long since we'd been, we decided to give Rio Grande another chance the other evening. What a mistake. The food was awful and our waiter was extremely slow and rude. We will...

We tend to go to Rio Grande at least once a week. Sometimes their service is hit or miss. However, the staff here is so nice that I tend to forgive them quickly. Once the food is ordered it's usually on the table within 5-10 minutes. The margaritas are STRONG, but it's a great value. Often they are cheaper than... More

Went there for lunch. The taco plate with your choice of 3 different kinds of meat/shrimp was awesome and huge!

Went to dinner at 6:30, no wait. Waiter right there to take drink order and deliver chips and salsa. Salas good, but mild so asked for a more lethal version. Was a good hot, but not as flavorful as the weak version. Food came quickly after ordering. Was hot, good, and lots of it.

This is one of our local favorites for Mexican food in COMO. Service is quick and friendly, prices are reasonable and the menu has something for everyone.

Typical, average affordable Mexican place. The staff is ok and usually friendly, not overly friendly. The food (most meals under $10) is average. Nothing that particularly wows me, but overall good.

I really like their soup, any day of the year! They have the best Mexican overall in Columbia in my opinion. The staff is usually kind and have smiles, good margaritas.

About as good as this category of restaurant can be. Simple tables and chairs and generic Mexican looking decor for an American restaurant. Food hot and fresh and tasty. Quick service. Lots of options. Fair prices. Friendly staff. Not elegant and not expected to be. Some outdoor seating facing a strip mall parking lot. On west side of town, not... More

My friends and I go here at least one a month for Mexican and Margaritas! The staff is always attentive, food is great , and the salsa is one of my favorites in town!
