Yummy! My daughter and I actually went twice during our recent stay in Plano. Stuffed avocados and tamale pie were delicious. S'more dessert was unique and homemade marshmallows were delicious.

6 of us for afternoon lunch. Chip and salsa guy was very quick but the actual server Stephanie never made it for 15 minutes. Even then the drink orders were wrong plus glasses were chipped. Had one round and left for another local pub. Thanks but no thanks

The Red Line Rita was outstanding! Spicy salsa which was good and I liked the bean dip. Had steak fajitas that were ok. I will be back for the balcony seating and Red Line Rita for sure!

We ate here on a date night with a few other couples. The place is multiple levels-resturant on bottom & bar on top (and on roof). Everyone's food looked and tasted delicious - stuffed avocados, tamale pie, brisket quesadilla, chimichurri chicken. I got the Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, and it was not very good, but I tried everyone else's food -... More

Our server was really sweet and attentive which always makes for a great experience in my mind. My boyfriend and I happened to come in for Sunday brunch, a pleasant surprise. There were many delicious Mexican inspired dishes with eggs or french toast for a sweet-tooth. I was excited by the Bloody Mary bar and one dollar Mimosas. The chips... More

Urban Rio has typical Tex Mex food and offers full bar service. The establishment is well organized and provides excellent service. A good place to have Tex Mex when in the downtown Plano area.

Really love this place, you can either on the lower floor which has a beautifully decorated dining room, or sit on the balcony and watch the 'EL" (dart line) go past. Magnificent meu, the burgers or chicken sandwhich is delightful. Best Beerita I've had in a long time. This is right across the street from my new work so I... More

The best restaurant we have eaten at in Texas so far. Tex Mex at it's finest. The brisket BBQ tacos were incredible and my super-picky daughter made the quesadilla disappear in record time. Fabulous vibe for any age. Outside seating was perfect!

Went here for Superbowl Sunday and loved the upper level called On The Rocks. The view was wonderful, the drinks where great and so was the food. They had TV's out on the patio and it was so nice. The place is huge and more for families upstairs is more laid back and fun. The food was great!!
