Paring Awesome TexMex with Potent Margaritas for a Truly Addicting Duo
From its downtown location adjacent to the 16th Street Mall and Pepsi Center, the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant has become a staple stop on any visit to LoDo Denver. Visit the renovated upstairs bar, "Rio Cantina," to watch your favorite team on the many TVs. This Denver Mexcian restaurant has prided itself on fresh food, award-winning margaritas, and an energetic, casual atmosphere for over 20 years. Outdoor dining on the patio is divine, but patrons of all ages can enjoy traditional Mexican music, tasteful decor, and a diverse menu in any of the dining spaces. Don't forget to book your next event with us. Happy Hour is Mon-Thur with $2.75 mini margaritas, $1 off select imports, and $5 appetizers like guacamole ensalada, chile con queso and empanadas. Fun for family and friends is found at the premier Denver Mexican restaurant, the Rio Grande.
