Step away from the Pearl Street Mall and escape to the Rio – for a little weekend spirit every day of the week. The Boulder Rio is seriously good, whether you’re bringing the family for dinner or just bringing your thirst for a good time on our rooftop patio(rooftop reservations can not be guaranteed).

The hostess graciously accepted our request to be seated away from the door and put us in a great spot. Our waiter Mark was very fun and interesting and on top of our requests. Food was excellent. One of the best meals/times we've had!

Good gluten free choices. Very tasty food. Prices are a bit high but to be expected for the quality and location. Go there, you will not be disappointed.

Taylor was our server and she did great. Chips and Salsa were on point. As was atomica salsa. Had enchiladas, one steak, one spinach. Were delicious. Walked out of there stuffed for a very reasonable price. Sat in the garage. New table tops looked great and tables are self leveling now, so no wobble. Great experience.

I really like this place, but had a disappointing experience two nights ago, mostly due to our female server. The server didn't take the order correctly, I ordered a 1/2 shrimp and 1/2 veggie fajitas--she place the order as shrimp with added vegetables (there is a difference in content and price). The fajitas were served without any of the accompanying garnishes---cheese, guac, pico, sour creme--which made for a rather uninspired meal. She didn't refill coffee nor salsa until asked. After the food was served (by others) she essentially stopped checking our table. The margaritas--manberry and agave--were great.

Food and drink were great as usual. Service was was disappointing - disappeared for long periods of time and had to have a correction on the bill as it was inaccurate.

I love the Rio even more now that I know I can make a reservation. Been going for years. Love the food and especially the margaritas -- especially the mini ones! Awesome roof top dining, and lots of great indoor spaces as well. One of my top five places to dine in Boulder.

Food was great as well as the service. Took our out-of-town New York family there for good Mexican food. Mango/Strawberry margarita's are awesome.
