This place has a cafe vibe with about 10 to 15 tables. It's not your typical colorful restaurant; granite tables, stone walls and tasteful decor. The carne asada is amazing! I had a taco with rice and beans and by boyfriend ordered the buritto with everything on it, which comes with a side of peppers & carrots in vinegar (my boyfriend said it was a staple of true mexican places and very good). The taco was simple, but very good: meat, onion, and cilantro wrapped in a homemade tortilla & served with fresh lemon wedges. The burritto was a bigger version and included rice and beans. Both were good, but I like the taco better. There wasn't anything special about the rice and beans. Next time, I'll order two tacos instead. The homemade chips and salsa were also very good. Bottom line: great food for great prices in a nice setting. We'll absolutely be going back.
Loved the food, the service, and the decor. My only pet peeve is that the music used to be better and more diverse. Latin music can be some of the prettiest in the world. Lately all I hear is a continuous disco type dance beat, song after song. I look around and see lots of older folks and families with young children. No one is enjoying the nightclub music. Hope they'll work harder at returning to the great music they used to have. Other than that, one of the best restaurants in town.
Good fast food; not fine dining. Taco Rio has better fast mexican food than most of the large taco chains in Wichita. Do not expect a fascinating culinary experience any more than you would at Taco Bell. It is locally owned and has a friendly staff. I like the ability to call my order in ahead; so it is prepared when I arrive.
They always have good food, friendly staff. I love how they have so much room at your table even when you have a big group. The restrooms are always clean and never a mess. They are very quick at clearing out tables so your not looking at a dirty table next to you for a long time. The prices are cheap as well.
Thought I would try it again as I cane here close to closing the first time and the food was not as fresh. This time it was great. The tequila lime chicken is very good and all the ingredients are extremely fresh. The service was very friendly and the establishment is very clean. Will definitely come back.
I have been a customer for many years. I like the fact that the food is alway freshly made. It does not have that artifical cheese flavor that some mexican food has. The prices are very good. Having an owner working on site is a plus. Ken on W 21st and Linda on W Central.
It's a vintage neighborhood bar wth a lot of personality. Excellent food, great drinks & cold beer at gd prices. Very clean & excellent service. Wonderful sandwiches & homemade soups! The jukebox & game room are a welcome touch too! I'll be back!! Yumm!!
Not only do they have great mexican food & margaritas, but also they are very committed to giving back to our community. Just another great reason to support their business. Thanks for all that you do for Wichita!
Really good food. Atmosphere was authentic Tex-Mex. Service was horrible. Forgot to give us change, always questioned our orders, and gave us the wrong sides. Decent restaurant, horrible service.
Not sure who these whiny people are, but I, my wife, and coworkers have had nothing but positive experiences here. Fantastic food, fast service, and an incredibly friendly owner.
