I can not express this enough, the best Mexican food ever. I’ve lived in Los Angeles, Orange County, Bakersfield, but not one other place, comes even close to el rio. I could be in la thinking about Mexican food and I will drive 3 hours just for food. Thank you to the owners and please don’t ever change anything, it’s perfect!

Just grabbed some frys for a quick lunch while working in the area. Used to take my kids to the park across the way & get burgers here. Sweet memories.They were tasty and was granted a nice side of thousand for dipping.

The food is amazing I’ve never been disappointed! The best thing on the planet is their chocolate dipped ice cream cone and eating while it’s melting all over you as you take a slow stroll by the river.
