In 1986, founder and owner, Pat McGaughran, opened the Rio in Old Town, Fort Collins, so he could introduce his beloved TexMex food to everyone. The Rio quickly became a place for guests to have a laugh with friends over a good meal. The concept was so popular that over the next three decades, McGaughran opened six locations across Colorado.
Now, as a 33-year-old Colorado icon, Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant is still one of the state’s favorite spots for fresh TexMex and well-known for its strong margaritas. (After all, they have a limit of three margaritas per person, no matter the day. They’re that strong!)
The restaurants is featuring drink specials for its 33rd anniversary on Saturday, June 15.
From 12:33 p.m. to 3:33 p.m., get a Classic Margarita (all varieties) for just $3.33 (reg. $8) and Rolling Rock bottle for only $1.33.
The offer is available at all of its six locations — Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, Frisco, Greeley and Park Meadows.
