I just moved back to Tx from Arizona (native Texan :) and I was totally satisfied with Casa Rio! This was actually our 2nd choice b/c the first restaurant had an hour and a 1/2 wait. I'm glad our plans changed. We walked a few blocks and Casa Rio had an hr. wait. This place is mulit leveled and right off the Riverwalk (cool scenery). Upstairs, I had a frozen rita that was not too sweet and had a great frozen consistency. I asked my brother about his rita, and the bartender over heard and asked if he'd like to try a top shelf rita instead offering to give us the first. I was appreciative b/c I know most bartenders don't take the time and feel too busy to go the extra mile. We got a table, and were greeted promptly by the server. I noticed he was sat at least 3 tables all at once and handled it perfectly. We never noticed. The queso was great and the server stayed on top of everything. My mom and I coordinated and shared 2 plates, green chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce, along with a combo plate with one cheese enchilada and a bean tostada. I was pretty stuffed, but the beans and rice are good too. This was a great welcome back for me and I highly recommend Casa Rio! We got a lot for what we spent. I will definately return.
