Great drinks & atmosphere, sub par food Apr 20, 2010
The Rio Grande has numerous locations around Colorado including one near Park Meadows Mall and a great location in Fort Collins. The Rio boasts fresh Mexican food, but in my opinion it’s not the best. If you are looking for fantastic Mexican food, skip the Rio there are better options. However, the ingredients are fresh and the chips and salsa are excellent. I usually order the tacos. If you enjoy traditional Mexican food, stay away from the combinations.

The real draw at any Rio is the delicious yet potent margarita. There is a three margarita limit (though there are ways around this rule ;) You can order your marg any way you like it: strawberry, original, rocks, frozen. There are also mango ritas, but my favorite is the strawberry light. No fewer calories here, the bartender simply mixes less strawberry syrup into a regular marg. The full strawberry margaritas are very sweet, but this way you still get the kick of the traditional lime rita with a splash of strawberry!

The restaurant itself is in a great location. On Blake just five blocks from Coors Field, the Rio is in the heart of the popular LoDo area. This makes it a perfect first stop on a night of barhopping. Better yet The downtown Rio has an upstairs for 21 and up only. The crowd at the bar is fun and lively.

This place is legendary for their excellent, but potent Margaritas. The best I have ever had! You can choose from margaritas, sangrias, house margaritas, salted, sugared, frozen, and on the rocks. Due to their "what-hit-me" strength there is a 3 Margarita limit. Their food is amazing as well and I recommend any of the enchiladas or fajitas platters. Anything you order will be great! On top of that this is definitely one of the city's prime time people watching locations. Enjoy and have fun!!!
