Mexican
Tequila Rio: Mexican Cantina, is located in the CBS Building in Wethersfield, alongside its sister restaurant, River: A Waterfront Restaurant & Bar. When weather permits, diners will be seated literally feet from the bank of the Connecticut River, offering sweeping, panoramic, and unparalleled views. The menu was created by a well-known New York celebrity Mexican Chef and features authentic Mexican dishes.

Our mouthwatering meals include tacos, tostadas, quesadillas, grilled salmon, and filet mignon with chimichurri sauce. See the full menu here. We also offer a full cocktail menu and the best frozen margaritas in Connecticut.

Tequila Rio is becoming the go-to place when your appetite runs South of the Border.

  • Parking details
    Since Putnam Park is an office building, most of the 600 parking spots are empty when it’s time for Happy Hour or dinner, so free parking is never a problem. Please remember, because there is so much parking, the lot could appear to be almost empty and yet there could be, literally, hundreds of people outside on the river, enjoying the party.

    The food here was horrible - the worst mexican food I’ve ever had. Salsa tasted like it had been made at least the day before and had fermented. Fish tacos were oily and the fish tasted old. Cocktails were watered down and very weak.

    This place is great! Unbeatable taco Tuesday deal! All the tacos were jammed packed except the shrimp tacos. The rice and refried beans didn’t take “authentic “ but was still very good! The street corn was excellent with a nice Smokey taste… served on the cob. A FULL piece. The guacamole and chip portion was small for the pricing but with everything else ordered with such great value it still was still well worth it in my opinion. The restaurant itself is small. Def a little gem. Real plants and trees throughout the restaurant. Will be coming back for sure! Thanks!

    We can check that box, been there, don’t need to go back. What a strange place! They made a makeshift “restaurant” in the middle of the lobby of the building. Like why?! Maybe this place has a better atmosphere in the summer. Food is outrageously OVERPRICED for what they give you. Salsa flight, but it doesn’t come with chips? Table was dirty, but wait staff had nothing to clean with. 4/5 staff members just hanging out and one lady checked on us three times - give her a job to do! Once again - what is with the prices ! ? !

    Hello, We’re sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us! We always like to check on our guests, and if you were unhappy with any of your meal, we would have been happy to replace it with something else! We’re sorry that you didn’t like our Jungle Barroom - our outside clearly can’t be open until the Spring/Summer time when the weather is conducive. Regarding the pricing, we only use fresh ingredients, and our food is priced accordingly! Again, we’re sorry that you didn’t enjoy, and we hope you find somewhere more to your liking! Have a great rest of your day, Patrick Henney Tequila Rio: Mexican Cantina

    Our first trip to Tequila Rio was wonderful! Our party of 8 (5 adults and 3 children ) was looking for a spot for dinner after a hockey game in Hartford and we ended up having the place to ourselves! Great food and drinks and lots of flavor- we will definitely be going back soon! Really appreciated the management allowing us to order from the kid’s menu from River for one of our picky eaters. Especially looking forward to going when it’s warm and we can sit outside!

    Food was hit and miss with some items, loved the salsa flight and the Chicharones were amazing! Drinks were just okay. The location is a little hidden gem.
