Rio Grande Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Rio Grande

February 19, 2018 Deane Carmody

The Rio Grande (/ˈriːoʊ ˈɡrænd/ or /ˈriːoʊ ˈɡrɑːndeɪ/; Spanish: Río Bravo del Norte, pronounced [ˈri.o ˈβɾaβo ðel ˈnorte] or simply Río Bravo) is one of the principal rivers in the southwest United States and northern Mexico (the other being the Colorado River). The Rio Grande begins in south-central Colorado in the United States and flows to the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, it forms part of the Mexico–United States border. According to the International Boundary and Water Commission, its total length was 1,896 miles (3,051 km) in the late 1980s, though course shifts occasionally result in length changes. Depending on how it is measured, the Rio Grande is either the fourth- or fifth-longest river system in North America.

I had lunch at this restaurant and it was excellent. They have a menu in Enlish and a good winelist. Service is good. I can recommend this restaurant to people who are not on a tight budget.

This is simply the best steakhouse in Rio Grande. They have excellent food, great service, good wines and cold beer all at reasonable prices. What more do you want? They are opening a brewpub in Cassino Dec 18 2012. I am looking forward to check it out as soon as possible.

Friendly staff, excellent 'five stars' homemade food! In addition, you can chose a special meat to be prepared for you during your lunch. The only 'but' is that is not that big so if you get late for lunch you have to wait around ten min for a place. I do recommend this restaurant.

Uma boa opção próximo das empresas, bom atendimento e um buffet com bastante variadade. Opções de buffet com grelhado e rodízio. Não dei sorte na carne, peguei um pedaço, que não me lembro qual parte, mas o garçom disse que era macio, entretanto...

The restaurant is cosy, the meals are simple, but very good, especially "camarão à grega gratinado", and always well cooked. Ask for it, you won't regret.

Great place for meat, friendly people. Address in TripAdvisor is wrong!! Choose your meat, and whatever you want with it, rice, pasta, salad. Maybe a bit expensive, but worth it

This is a good choice if you are a meat lover. However it is normally crowded and very noisy. If you like quiet places this restaurant is not for you.
