Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant

Brooke Hudson, Editor

Rio Grande is a chain of Mexican Restaurants located all over Colorado. However, the closet location is in Park Meadows. The address is 9535 Park Meadows Dr, Lone Tree, CO 80124. It is open from 11 am to 9 pm Monday through Thursday and including Sunday. While on Friday and Saturday it is open from 11 am- 11 pm. Here, you can find tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, carne asada, and much more.  

Their other locations in Colorado include Denver, Boulder, Greeley, and Fort Collins. When you walk in the restaurant, it gives you a very upbeat vibe including modern music. There are many items on the menu to choose from. The restaurant is also very flexible with adding and removing items from your meal. Just like every mexican restaurant, they gave you chips and salsa right away. 

The restaurant is very big, spacious, and two floors! On one downside, the restaurant is very busy on Friday and Saturday nights. If you go during that time it could be an hour wait which is not enjoyable. Going for lunch or early dinner is a great time to go, with plenty of staff and it’s not crowded. The staff are always super nice, friendly, and helpful. It will leave you with a good experience. 

I would really recommend this place to any mexican food lovers because I will guarantee you, you will like it. Even if your not a big mexican restaurant fan, I’m sure you could find something you would like on the menu. This is definitely a great place to sit down and have a good time with your friends or family!
