The food here is spectacular! Rio incorporates Latin flavors with your favorites and introduces amazing dishes you may not have had before. (If you enjoy meat - start with the bacon wrapped dates and follow with the short ribs and it will be the best dinner you've had! )The food was enough to make me a fan, but the service made me a regular. This has become my favorite place to dine in Tucson.
What is extra-special about Rio is how comfortable it is to be there. They remember you after one visit. The owner checks in to see how much you are enjoying your meal. Eating at the bar is like hanging out with good friends and family.
They have happy hour from 4-6 with half price apps - which means 2 people can fill up on three appetizers for less than $15. If you are dining alone - sit at the bar! The staff will introduce you to the others at the bar and soon you will be laughing and enjoying your food and wine with new friends!
I recommend Rio as a happy hour destination, for a group dinner, for a solo night out, or for a date. I recently had a visitor from out of town, and we ended up wanting to go to Rio over and over again. You can have an amazing night on any budget. It's foodie heaven!
