Check out our list of the best Mexican restaurants in Independence.
“It really depends what day you go here, what service you’ll get. I’ve been 2x in the last week.The first experience was great! The second experience (yesterday) was great but warm inside, they may need a new AC unit.I always get the Pollo Bandido (no beans) and it’s soooo delicious. Chicken and rice covered in queso. It was $45 for three people during lunch hours.I have ordered takeout in the past and sometimes it’s so busy that the wait takes forever and the host disappears. Some of the hosts are not friendly, but most of them are. A few take out orders I’ve had have been messed up in the past (2x) where they’ve given us beans when we specifically asked for no beans. This is probably because of low staffing and busy times though.I still highly recommend El Rio Grande!!! It’s my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area! I literally crave this stuff. ??✨Parking: Big parking lot!Kid-friendliness: Kids come here all the time.”
“We love the food and eat here several times a week. Lately the language barrier has become a problem. Only one server speaks both English and Spanish. She is an excellent server and is the only one who currently knows how to apply a veteran's discount. It would be helpful if there was at least one server who speaks English on every shift.”
“I like this place to eat . They make the food exactly as you would expect. Almost every time I've gotten food here though they have forgot something so look in bag before you leave if you don't want to have to go back to get good missing product.”
“Always friendly service as fast as they can. Sometimes the line is longer but they get you through fast. If they have a busy day they will run out of ingredients, which can be frustrating but it isn’t the fault of the team working the late shift.”
