Great new place!
Tried this place over the weekend with friends and it was great! We loved the menu and can't wait to go back and try other items on it. We started with a potato appetizers and it was amazing. I had the chicken fried rice, and another person in our group had the skirt steak. Everyone loved their meals! Instead of standard bread, they bring out fried pita bread, with 3 different dipping sauces, which were all really good. Definitely going back soon!

Great place for dinner
Went to Rio with my wife and another couple. We had a great time, the food was really good. We had a variety of dishes, from the won ton appetizer to skirt steak, the marinated duck and chicken rolled around asparagas. Everything tasted great, the wait-staff were helpful and the atmosphere was great, not too noisy, nor too quiet.
We will definitely go again, and again...

Nice new place in the neighborhood
The food and service were very good. I especially liked the menu selections, different than any other restaurant in the area. We were pleasantly pleased and look forward to trying another interesting dish.

Breathe of Fresh Air
This is a little gem in the mix of steak house and other ethnic food in Addison. Elegant and yet casual. The food is outstanding and the wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We went on Father's Day, Take the patio and have a Mango Mojito, great!

Will Be Back
We were pleasantly surprised with the food. Everything we had was delicious especially the sauces they provided on the side chimmi churri etc. Unfortunately the service went from bad to worse after we ordered a second round of drinks. We ordered a vodka tonic and a Mojito (their signature drink), the v&t came after about 10 minutes and the Mojito took over 20 minutes. I should note that the servers was knowledgeable and very nice.
I WILL however try this place again because the food was so good and I think they can fix the service issues with some training, at least I hope they can.

quaint little place
The food was amazing. Service was slow but the server was knowledgeable and friendly. Fyi there is no kids menu. We took a five year old with us and fortunately she eats a variety. The appetizers were perfect portions for her. Will definitely be back to try other menu items.

Food was fantastic
Very interesting menu for food and drinks and the food was great. The service was excellent, but it did take an unusually long time for the entrée to come out. It was fine for us, we were visiting, but others might not like it. It was a wonderful evening though and I can highly recommend this place.

Great new spot, rough parking...
We stopped in at Rio's to try something new. The establishment has been open a few months now, and we wanted to try before there was a chance of closing, as many others in the area have! GLAD WE DID!! Food was great! Service (Chris) was great! It was overall on the high side ($$) for what we had, but not unheard of... would visit again, I hope the community gives them a chance! Parking in front of building is limited, but plenty in back.

South American Gem!
This place is a great alternative to the restaurants in the area. The atmosphere food and service take you to South America for the evening.

So my husband found this place using your app and boy did he find a good one. From the hostess, to the bartender, to our server, excellent service. Food was incredible. Do not let the location of being on Lake street in s strip mall fool you. Hidden gem.

We were in town for a business
We were in town for a business meeting and were pleasantly surprised to find a unique restaurant like Rio's in the cornfields of surburbia! Dinner was great as was the service.

Loved the appetizers here! The food is very different from your usual night out to dinner. Loved the beef tournedos. Service was great. Entrees were also very good. We'll go back!

Always Good Food
Been to Rio's several times and the food has always been the highlight with the service taking a distant second, until this time. The food was good as always, but we were pleasantly surprised that the service had finally gotten up to speed with the food. Our server Tony was attentive and knowledgeable, he helped to make this visit to Rio's one of our best.

What a terrific find
My husband and I are always looking for new places to try. Since neither one of us have ever had South American cuisine before we decided to give it a try. What a gem ! Staff was very attentive, food was very good and wine list was very reasonable. We will definitely be back to try other dishes.

Chicago style ambiance in Addison
Finally had a babysitter and decided to go out in the neighborhood for a bite to eat. Went to Rio and was pleasantly surprised. New menu and great service. Had the South American stir fry and the wife had the Tierra y Mar.
We both thoroughly enjoyed the night. Calamari was marginal at best. Tasted as if the Chef used frozen calamari and breaded it then fried it for us. Besides the calamari, don't pass Rio up.

I really enjoyed my meal at Rio. Food was outstanding as well as the service. Too bad I was the only person there. Great flavors you can't find at other places. They brought me some bread to start with three different sauces which were all wonderful. Next they brought out a tiny cup of soup for me to try which was also excellent. Really enjoyed Corte De Entraña Estilo Rio's as my entree. I was in town for business but I will go back for sure next time I am there.
