Information about this business (4)

Original Mexican restaurant on the River Walk

One of the original Mexican restaurants on the San Antonio River Walk, Rio Rio Cantina is locally famous and famously local. This downtown restaurant will indulge your cravings with a fiesta of flavors. Rio’s fresh Tex-Mex recipes, homemade flour tortillas and handcrafted margaritas bring the tastes of Mexico to your table.

Mexican food so good, they named it twice. Located in the heart of the city's River Walk, Rio Rio Cantina offers tried-and-true Tex-Mex dining, both indoors and overlooking the river. Do not miss favorites such as Green Enchiladas, beef and Chicken Fajitas and enormous Quesadillas. The bartenders also make a darn good margarita. This is a colorful, fun and noisy place where kids blend in well...

Rio Rio Cantina Restaurant Review

Rio Rio's Cal-Mex menu is an anomaly in the sentimental home of Tex-Mex cuisine, and its tongue-in-cheek interior tweaks traditional Mexican motifs, too. The burrito, for example, was never a Tex-Mex standard---especially not when it arrives busting at the seams with rice, spinach, beans, cheese and mild chilies. Chiles rellenos are prepared with poblanos in these parts, pardner, but Rio Rio...

Remember the three ""Ps""--platters of food, patio dining and pigeons.

Good view of River Walk with good food

Average Rating

Sat outside upstairs to keep out of the fray of the traffic of River Walk. Good food, but higher prices as is many of the restaurants that overlook the River Walk. The prickly pear margarita has a strange after taste. I would not recommend that drink, however the El Presidente margarita is good. Pretty good food if you want to...

Drinks were terrible and their service was the worst of it all. She just disappeared and reappears later after a manager had to wait on us. He...
