Putting aside for a moment that everyone knows "The Rio" has the best darn old-school margaritas in Colorado, it seems all my local peeps think the food is a second-class citizen to those yummy margs. I'm here to definitively say the Grilled Steak Fajitas are the absolutely unequivocal best steak fajitas I have ever tasted in my life! Oh yeah, I said it... and it just so happens to be true.

First off, there are no gimmicks here. The plate does not come out sizzling to wow guests with its fresh-off-the-grill theatrics, but incredible fajita ingredients you shall certainly have. The marinated skirt steak is always cooked perfectly with a beautiful char on the outside and juicy on the inside. The meat is so delicious all by its lonesome, I generally eat the second half of my steak with none of the fajitas fixings like it's a premium chop at Peter Lugers in NYC. It comes with a vibrant medley of grilled onions, green & red peppers, simple Mexican rice and black beans, plus wonderfully detailed additions like fresh house-made flour tortillas & guacamole make the dish. I also love the perfectly thin chips & house-made salsa.

So if you're near one of the various Rio locations in Colorado, come for the margaritas, but stay for the fajitas!
