El Rio Grande is an excellent spot for homemade Mexican food - their chimichangas and fajitas taste delicious and are ready fast. The menu is filled with cost-effective dining options, especially at lunch. Try out the popular Carnitas de Puerco, composed of deep fried pork, rice, beans and guacamole. For iron-cast stomachs, try the Chile Colorado, beef smothered in red chili sauce with Mexican rice, refried beans and flour tortillas. The margaritas come in a wide variety, including mango, peach, pina colada, and strawberry. Small smoking area available.Show more
