Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant - Lone Tree Ratings and Reviews
Overall, this place is good. I do believe it is a little over priced for the meal. Had the steak fajitas, but the meat was cold. Waited for the server, which she was busy, but after a 6-7 minute wait, I just ate them before it got worse. Seems they may be remodeling with the walls a plain white so maybe this has something to do with it.
Still the best margaritas and food. But the reconstruction making the restaurant smaller WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA. They reduced the dining space in half. You are sitting elbow to elbow with the table next to you. They jammed the tables in the dining area. Noise level is ridiculous. Wish they would have left the space alone.
We had reservations and were taken to our table quickly. The server attended to our needs but it was obvious she was extremely busy. We were contemplating ordering desert but the server never even asked if we wanted any. Our table was being cleaned out from under us as the bill was being delivered. So, we left without desert. I understand you want to clear tables for those who might be waiting (there wasn't a line when we left) but there was a missed opportunity for a sale and I won't be in a hurry go to back.
Went for dinner before a movie. Have done this many times in the past and it was always great. This time they did not have a table very close to the reservation time, the waiter disappeared a lot, the food took over 30 minutes to come out and when it came out it was cold. They just went through a big renovation at this location and I hope they get back to where they were quickly.
Love the Rio, but there were large parties and not enough staff tonight. Sat immediately but waited almost 20 minutes for a waiter who only came by after we asked for some help. Order took almost 30 minutes for 2 burritos, no one checked on us for more drinks or chips until our food arrived. Staff was clearly outnumbered tonight - our waiter apologized and we didn't thin it was his fault, he needed more help!
Our group of 6 sat on the patio which looks out over the parking lot but there was plenty of room and the wait staff was friendly and accommodating. None of us ordered anything very adventurous (e.g. chicken burritos and tostadas, guac,chips and marqs) so maybe that was the problem. The tostadas were mostly lettuce piled on top of minimal chicken and beans and they didn't have much flavor so we piled on green chili, salsa, and hot sauce. The side of beans were extra salty but I'm told the marqs were very good. All in all, just an okay experience.
We have been eating at the Rio Grande for many years (and I mean many), and have been pleased with the food and level of service, but all of the sudden this location has turned for the worse. The food was absolutely terrible! Several of the meals were brought out cold, several massively over cooked, and overall the food has changed dramatically from the last tie we ate at this location a couple of months ago. Simply terrible! The service was also extremely slow and our food took a very long time in coming out. This was a birthday occasion so made the experience even worse.
My family and I will not be returning to this location.
The #1 reason we go is for the margaritas. The food has gotten better through the years. They wait staff has been very good the last couple times in. The open table reservation process is a must on a Friday night. You will wait a long time if you don't have a reservation. We were 15 minutes early and we were still seated immediately.
