HORRIBLE! Frozen food taste better. The waiter was nice but the food was awful My food was burned . There was long black hair in the beans. My brother got very sick after eating & we had to take mom to the ER. The taco that was added to one of the orders, the meat smelled like it was old. We took it to the hospital when we took mom & they said it was growing bacteria like crazy. Mom is a healthy lady but this took her to ICU & an IV for 3 days. I've gotten food there several times in the past that wasn't great but it was easy to go in a rush. We had a big birthday party there for the insurance office & we all got sick that night. We didn't drink alcohol u but all got the chimichanga ( chicken). The meat is boiled not grilled. There was skin & not just meat in them. We showed the owner & he said we were trying to get out of paying our bill. we paid the bill & left the food hardly eaten. worst place ever. We went to Milano's in Valley & had a great affordable meal.

Food was great.. Service was awful. I went to eat w/ a friend. When we walked in the door, we were not greeted by anyone, we ended up walking around seating ourselves as several employees watched. I know El Rio can get busy quickly but there were only three other cars there besides mine. Then to add insult to injury, we were then moved from where we sat to another table and seated next to a group of 8-10th very loud and annoying guests. Staff was not very friendly. I was very disappointed with the service due to it was my first, and last, time eating there. I now frequent San Marcos.. Where I'm always kindly greeted when I walk in the door and seated promptly by staff. El Rio could learn a few things from San Marcos. It's a shame service prevents me from going back because the food was actually really tasty:(
