We often go to Rio Mambo just to enjoy a fun evening. The food is TexMex and is good and plentiful, the drinks are really good and well done. the service is good for such a busy location. The outside patios are great for friends to get together and enjoy a relaxing evening.

I usually like this Rio Mambo but the last time my family and I ate there it was terrible! They kept messing up our order, the food wasn't that good (hot) and even though the Manager came by and apologized, they didn't offer to comp anything and then they messed up again with the second go around! Not sure if... More

This is a great place to celebrate birthdays as they put a sombrero on the birthday boy/girl and clap and sing a jubilant song! The food is great and the service is as well. The fajitas are very large servings so we were able to share. I highly recommend Rio Mambo!

We've eaten here before but not in a while. It was a good experience last time but this time it was really good! My husband found the Plato Campeón on the menu. All I can say is muy delicioso! There was more than enough food for the two of us--beef and chicken fajitas on a sizzling platter, chipotle glazed pork... More

Returning to a one time favorite after a significant absence is always a bit of gamble. Our decision to have lunch at Rio Mambo the other day was not a horrible mistake, but it was certainly not worth repeating in the near future. To be clear, we have dined at this location occasionally in the past few years. Our experiences... More

I'm a beef fajita fan, and this place has the best. Great quality beef and homemade torillas make this place special. AND their queso is to die for.

The staff is friendly and efficient. Management actually cares. The food, especially the brisket taco is good and the daily drink specials include a really good margarita. Go early because they get crowded pretty quick.

I will say right out that we had a great dinner here. The restaurant was within a short walk from our hotel and that is the only reason we came in but I am very glad we did. We were seated promptly and given warmed taco chips and fresh salsa as a free appetizer. We ordered two dinners: chalupas and... More

When it first opened, this restaurant's decor was spartan and the food was just OK. When a friend asked to meet me there two years ago, I reluctantly agreed. I noticed a great change in the place and have since entertained groups of guests there. Even my picky grandchildren from Washington, DC, enjoyed the food and the experience.

Wow, we have been going to this restaurant since 2003. It has been one of our favorite restaurants until our past two times. The service was horrible and the food was not what we ordered. They left out the spinach in Gloria's , also it took two hours to get our food. We were told that they delivered our food... More
