The feisty drinks pack such a kick that there is a three-margarita drink limit.

NileGuide Expert tip:
To secure a table or land a coveted patio seat, show up early or expect to wait awhile at the standing room-only bar.
The Rio Grande is best known for its tasty and potent margaritas, which you can order on the rocks or frozen, and which come in strawberry, mango, and even pomegranate. You can also try one of their "Big Tex" margarita: tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur make a tasty and frosty beverage that's perfect for summer. These strong drinks, combined with their festive, Southwestern atmosphere draws a noisy crowd. The Rio also offers tasty -- albeit often drenched in cheese -- Tex-Mex fare and homemade tortilla chips and salsa.
