The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant is authentic Mexican food at chain restaurant prices. The salsa is made on site with just the right hint of cilantro.

I have been here many times. I can say that as much as I can eat for a low price and drink 'tasty' margaritas is a bonus. Great place for a group/work/party dinner. I've attended all, and the mix of company and drinks always make the visit enjoyable. Then after ya drink, order some food, it's mexican palatable for american's.... More

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area! The waiters are usually friendly, the food comes fast, it's never too busy and the queso is amazing. Plus free free chips and salsa is a plus. It's a favorite of my friend group because it's easy to find something for everyone - I'm a vegetarian and I have... More

Stopped in just before a concert at the Civic Center. The place is very dimly lit. The host and waiters are very amiable and the salsa and margaritas were great but that's about it. The food was subpar at best. The chips had a strange taste to them. Almost like pickle juice? The portions for the sides was meager. I've... More

My family stayed at Embassy Suites while passing through town. We arrived at dinner time after a long day of driving and everyone was hungry. Rio Grande was nearby and was decently rated. I'm glad someone put in a review that it was down an alley and a little difficult to find. That helped us to find it more quickly.... More

It is hard to find a bad Mexican restaurant, and Rio Grande is in with the relatively good food and service that we expect. I like the large chicken burrito. It is generously sized, and prepared very well. If Rio Grande is convenient, you should give it a try.

I love mexican food. Rio is for sure the best around the charleston area! Good cheese dip is hard to find, and you can't just find it at any mexican place. At rio it is always the same and never dissappointing!
