Does anybody know what is going on with Rio Grande? Did they move, shut down? Any info would be great. My family loves to eat there.

Nope, that is a new Mexican restaurant that is going into the old Pancake House. Something called El Campone or something like that. I also heard that they will be moving in the location of Kohls. I am wondering if they will be in a freestanding building or not. I personally think they would do better if they were in a freestanding building and not part of the little strip mall.

I loved Rio Grande until I tried that Mexican restaurant, forgot its name, in Beckley Crossing, over by the christian book store, that used to be the Chinese restaurant. So much cleaner looking and the food is always good. But I am sure Rio will be cleaner looking with a new restaurant.

I am not sure when the new Mexican restaurant on Harper Road will be opening. All that is says on its sign is "Opening Soon"...whenever soon is..haha

That is okay, thyvdsdf, we all have our favorites. No harm done!:o)

I did notice yesterday while I was out that a new structure was being built on the main road of Eisenhower in front of the Cranberry Creek mall. I am wondering if that is not going to be the new site of Rio? Might be good if it is. Pretty good location - right off the road where you can't miss it.

From what I have heard, the structure they're are building in front of kohls will be Rio Grande.

Rio Grande' is without a doubt the best restaurant in Beckley or the surrounding area..
Beats all other places to eat, hands down, period.
If you are having Rio-withdraws, go to the one in Oak Hill at the Fayette Square.. it's just as good.

the people who had rio grande is opening up the new restruant it will be like the one in charleston near the dog track (very nice). It is called La Rocca. I talked to a guy who worked at rio and that is what he told me a few weeks ago.

I agree that the food is great but I have to admit that I felt uncomfortable eating there because of the staff and how they would stand around and ogle the females, whisper to one another and, you guessed it, stare at the females and they even had the audacity to put their arms around me. I have also noticed them doing this to other females, as well. It's just not okay to try to hug around on someone you do not know...almost borders on harassment. I'm interested to hear whether or not anyone shares this experience.

I shared the same uneasiness when going in there. The guy with the hat always played with my nose (weird!). I never went in there without a male friend, and sat on the inside of the booth. I wonder if they ever had any formal charges brought upon them? Great food though, although I have heard horror stories, I personally never experienced any.

How can you guys think that rio grande is a good resturant. You have obviously never tasted authentic mexican food because none of the mexican resturants here are what you would call tastey. And Rio in my opinion was to be about the worst.. And how come it was never clean. I felt like I needed a vacanation just for walking inside.
