Was disappointed in the food here. It is pretty basic TexMex and not a lot of flavor. The plates came out super fast and food was hot. The staff while not overly friendly was very attentive and did a very good job. Overall, I dont plan to return as there are better more flavorful options in town.

I had the burrito plate with red chili sauce and my spouse had the Renee Salad with green chili sauce. Both were excellent. We loved the delicious flavor of the sauces. It was delicious and all either one of us could eat. I’d come back any time. We had a great waitress, too. She would come back periodically to see... More

Here's what I like about this place: the service is (usually) great, the price is right and the chile rellenos are yummy. You aren't going here for the ambiance or the romance. You are going here for a solid meal with some great spice.

I've been eating at Los Rios for years. The food is always consistently good, and the service is great. The red chile has a flavor that you can only find in northern New Mexico. I hope you like it hot!

My family and I were excited to try Los Rios after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, so we chose it over all the other restaurants in Farmington. We love to eat out and Southwestern/New Mexican food is our favorite. Unfortunately, our meals were mediocre at best. The food was fairly standard in flavor. It definitely left something to... More

We had read the reviews and their description of this spot and knew we had to try it. Consistent with the other great reviews, we would add our compliments. It is in a small strip mall and is closed for a portion of the afternoon but it was worth it to adjust our schedule with their dinner hours. My wife... More

Not the sort of Mexican food that is served in Columbus, GA! This was authentic Mexican fare and it was fabulous!

Looking for Mexican food with a New Mexican flair. Los Rios is for you. Locally owned, managed, and served with a smile. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. The chips and hot sauce are very tasty. Make sure you get which ever entrée covered in green chili. Wow! Soo Good! They have all the regular Mexican items along... More
