Reviews of El Rio Lindo

My little story starts on Jan 30 2015. I decided to give Rio Lindo-Marvell, AR a chance because I had done so much business with Rio Lindo-Helena, AR and never been dissatisfied. My first order was simple, cheese dip chips and a coke. My order total was $6.45 and i happily went to work with my purchase. My next experience was a bit displeasing and it was totally based on my purchase total. I called in an order which consisted of a 1 small Rebelde($5.99) plus veggies added peppers onions tomatoes & mushrooms - 1 small cheese dip($3.29) and a bottled drink a coke in a glass bottle that was located in a cooler nearby the cashier station. I have no idea how much the drink was priced. On this visit i paid $16.06. I was thinking wow that's expensive. One person One order Not fancy in MARVELL ARKANSAS and I'm paying Little Rock and Memphis dinner prices. But I thought ok the extra veggies a cup of ice to go with the coke maybe even a standard fee tacked on for the cook. UNTIL I decide to call in on Feb 6 2015 and place the exact same order except I did not order a drinks because I already had one. So of course I'm thinking my total would be less than $16. When I showed up at the restaurant about 10 mins later the hostess had a smile on her face and was glad to see me - now I know why! When she totaled my purchase she told me it would be $18.??. Those are question marks because the second I heard $18 my brain went into another mode - namely defensive because it was then and there that I realized I was being ripped off. I said "that's too much" she looked at me funny as if she couldn't believe what I said. I said again "that's too much" and she tried to explain to me that I had asked for mushrooms. I was seeing red by this time because I realized what was going on. I told the lady "she could keep it i was going to do something dofferent" namely not sit by and let someone take advantage of me or try to. And I walked out and left. Once I get in my vehicle I decide to call the Helena Rio Lindo location and just ask how much a small Rebelde and a small cheese dip purchase would be. He tells me $10 and some change. So I tell him I'll place my order there and told him exactly why and what had transpired at Marvell. So I ordered the same thing. Long story short when I went to pick up my order at the Cherry Street locarion the owner asked me if I had placed an order and left it at the Marvell location. I told him i most certainly had and why. He then tells me I had not told him exactly what I wanted because i failed to tell him veggies. So I said you mean to tell me you charge over $8.00 for vegetables. And he says yes. By this time I knew he was lying too and so I said you are all crazy and trying to rip someone off and I don't need this and won't be back plus a few other words I'm sure of. I was seeing red. Nothing makes me madder than for someone to blatantly lie to me or try to cheat me - which is what they both had done. I will never step foot in the restaurant again EVER! And to think I had done business there for 2 years and never had a problem. But I was always with a group before. I don't know if that made a difference but something sure did
