    I am from Houston so I know Tex Mex - the food was not very good. I had the cheese enchiladas which had a strange spice, my boyfriend had the fajitas and the tortillas were the worst I have ever tasted - especially for 'homemade.' Margaritas less than a

    Not sure why so many negatives. Although a bit pricey for Mexican, I certainly walked away with no complaints. The guacamole made table-side was to die for. The steak tacos, delicious. Granted, what's the big deal about a steak taco -- in this case, t

    Not recommended

    I work in the area and eat lunch out almost every day. I end up here about once a year, when I forget exactly what I disliked about it so much the last time. There is a nice patio that's up off the street, so it's tempting in the summer despite weird am

    Agree about the service

    I went here with my BF during the summer to sit outside and drink the yummy margies I've heard so much about. Everyone is right, the margies are SUPER! We sat outside in in an hour each had 2 1/2 margies, we were told we had to pay and leave if we didn't

    I have been going to Rio for years since my roomate introduced me. It is the best tex-mex in NYC. Now we have to go at least once a week for our enchiladas! The margaritas are also great. I love the sitting outside in the summer here. They were also
