What a gem in Stoughton. The place is bigger in there than it looks outside; booths, tables, a small bar, and stage. I loved the bright paint, decor, and music. Staff was ridiculously nice, overly accommodating, and small town conversational but not annoying. 4 different employees approached us, one perkier than the last. We tried out their house margaritas to... More

Both the service and food are of the best quality. There is also light entertainment on Saturday nights. The price is also very reasonable for any order.

This place has great vibes and even better food. Just popped in for beer and snacks. Five of us were served by Jamie who saw to our every need. Checking ID's was made humorous. Daniel stopped by our table to say hola. Ask for the "special salsa" kept in the kitchen. Spicy hot and wonderful on the homemade chips. Will... More

While I tend to like texmex over authentic, my husband loves Rio Grande. Service is always great, but it can take some time to get a table on weekends. A lot of the time we do take out. Serving are generous and prices are more than fair.
