Even though this restaurant only has been open since fall, it is developing a strong following. The barbecue is some of the best I have ever tasted, the serving staff is attentive, the bar keeps the drinks flowing, and the prices are more than reasonable. El Rio does an unbelievable Sunday buffet with great music. Friday and Saturday nights local bands also play, and El Rio has been known to have special music days. The venue is terrific -- right by the river with a beach and swimming area. This is not your normal tourist place; it is totally Mexico. In fact, I'd like to keep El Rio a secret so the crowds don't come!!!
