The Rio: Your Escape from the Everyday

Everyone needs a healthy escape every now and then. The Rio was built on the simple promise of providing that little bit of sanctuary – any time you need it. It all began in 1986, when the town of Fort Collins was hungry for some delicious Mexican food and really thirsty for a decent margarita. Three guys from the Texas Gulf Coast heard them loud and clear, and started serving up something special. And that tradition continues today with six great Colorado locations (seven, including Coors Field!) - each offering a flavor all its own.

But it’s our people who have always been our secret ingredient. Treating each other well is our way of life. Delivering wholesome food with a workplace to match is the best way to ensure happy, satisfied customers. And sharing the flavors we’ve experienced along the way is always the start of a good thing. So cheers. Enjoy the benefits of our many adventures in Mexico, the recipes we’ve discovered, and of course, the legendary Rio Marg. We hope you’ll agree that we serve up the best dang margaritas and from-scratch Mexican food this side of the Rio Grande, all in an atmosphere that makes you forget why you needed an escape in the first place.
