Love this place! Great margaritas
Love this place! Great margaritas and food and it is right in the middle of the action in Boulder! Can't wait for the rooftop to be open in the Spring.

Given that our reservation
Given that our reservation was at 6:15pm and was not seated until 45 minutes later we had a wonderful time. The management was aplogetic,and kept us abreast as to why there was no table for us. To give the Rio a chance it was VERY busy and one of our 1st picture perfect days here in Colorado.

Excellent food. Chile relleno,
Excellent food. Chile relleno, chicken fajitas and pork burrito were all excellent. The salsa is fresh an hot. Margaritas pack a punch. Great roof top bar with outstanding view of Flagstaff and the Flatirons. Worth going.

We love the Rio! The food
We love the Rio! The food is not the best Mexican in town, but the drinks, service, and atmosphere can not be beat. We have a great time every time!

Great for a Sunny Boulder Day
This was our best trip to the Rio in a long time. The food was hot, delicious and the service was ontime. We sat in the 'garage' portion up near the street but on street level. It was a nice day and you could see the mountains in the distance. The Rio is our college-age daughter's favorite Boulder location to be with her friends and we return again and again to enjoy the food, fun and being with them. The Rio is particularly fun for a group of people with plenty to share.

We had a group of 12 people and we were on a tight schedule for lunch. I let the restuarant know ahead of time and they did a great job! They had the table already set and the minute we sat down, the server was there to take our drink order and shorty after that she came around and took our food order. We were celebrating a 50th birthday in our group and they treated her to sopapilla's and ice cream for our entire group! Everyone in the group was pleased with our experience and we would defintely consider coming again!

You expect the margaritas to be good, but the food is also very good.

Great Food Great Service
I had the Cheese n Onion enchiladas, they reminded me of the TexMex that I grew up with. The guacamole was delicious and the green shirt girls never let our chips run out. I only wish they had name tags so I could have recognized them properly. Our waitress was charming and attentive. I also enjoyed a Margarita and it lived up to its reputation. I would recommend the Rio to friends, family and anyone asking for a recommendation.

Noisy and yummy
The rio is one of my favorites. I always have the same thing--because it's so good! smothered burrito with red and green sauce and a manberry margarita!

Mexican food in the early evening
First, I am a native Texan and was weaned on good authentic Mexican food. The food offered at the Rio Grande is some of the most authentic Mexican food that I have found in the North Denver. The service is great and while the indoor dining experience is nice, the outdoor experience either on the roof or the sidewalk along Walnut is perfect int he early to late evenings.
I highly recommend the Rio Grande.

OpenTable is the ticket!!!
I am new to OpenTable even though I am a long time Rio diner. OPENTABLE ROCKS!!! I plan on using this serve more often. I had a small group of ladies (women's social group) for Happy Hour and we were able to secure a rooftop table with no problem. We arrived and our table was set and ready to go! This is a FABULOUS service (and the food / margs are always great :)

Rio Grande did a great job. Everything was setup for our party of 12 when we arrived for lunch. We were celebrating a family birthday. They brought out complimentary ice cream with a candle and sopapillas for dessert to help us celebrate. The entree portions were very generous for the cost. Certainly a very affordable option for the Boulder pearl street area.

Margaritas can't be beat!
Great Margaritas. Food was very good and service was fast and friendly.

The rio is an awesome restaurant! Don't skip the Margs they are well worth the $7! Delicious steak fajitas!

View is amazing
The food at Rio Grande is quite good, but the view from the rooftop is spectacular.

Great for groups
Always a fun place in Boulder for Margaritas and good Mexican food.

Comfortable atmosphere, although
Comfortable atmosphere, although a little noisy. The service was timely and pleasant. The dishes we had were very good and serving sizes were appropriate and prices were reasonable. There is no elevator to the rooftop, so that is not appropriate option for guests with mobility issues.

Rooftop dining with a view
Had a great lunch at the newly expanded rooftop bar with a colleague. Found out you can get the made from scratch burritos baked to melt the cheese. Excellent service from the bartender Nathaniel. One of my Boulder favorites for great food and of course the margaritas!

You will not be disappointed! Everything was very good! So good we ate there 2 nights in a row! Very fresh everything. They make everything down to their tortillas daily. Staff all very friendly and attentive

Roof Top View of the Flatirons?!!
An amazing visit to a Boulder classic on Saturday afternoon. It was 90+ degrees, and we really wanted to sit on the roof, but wondered if that was such a good idea in the heat. We got to the top and looked out over the roof at the large water feature, umbrella'd tables, Flatirons views and water mist floating out of tubes all over and under the umbrellas on the tables. The table we chose was amazingly comfortable. We didn't feel wet or hot--worked just like an evaporative cooler should, that mist. The food was fresh mexican, spicy for those who like hot (me), and a large margarita menu. A burrito and two Don Julio margs later, we sat, mouths happy, looking at the beautiful end-of-summer sky and foothills backdrop.

Great Pork Burrito's
Great Pork Burrito's smothered in green chile sauce. My favorite here. Margs a great too.

It's Not Just About the Margaritas
Though the drinks are terrific (try the Big Tex Marg!), our party was delighted with our food. Three thumbs up for the spinach enchiladas!

Nice place for meetups with friends
3rd time I've been here. I loved how potent the margaritas use to be, but this time they seemed real tame...for the price, I want to feel that buzz!! I thought the portion size was just okay for the price and would like beans/rice with my entrée to make it go farther. I was still a bit hungry after my measly burrito.
Still, I like this place and the food is good.
