Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant

4716 Camp Robinson Road, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Smells like a swimming pool. That was my first impression as the hostess seated us. My guess was that they had been using bleach to clean with. At least the chances of catching ebola or worse have diminished...

First look at the menu revealed, "speedy gonzalez," a sure tip off that everything you get there is food service and not real cooking. This proved to be correct as the meal came out with the ubiquitous soupy beans and canned red enchilada sauce that bubbles on hot platters in every faux "authentic" restaurant in town. If this is authentic Mexican food, I pity the poor people of Mexico for having to eat it. Even the salsa tasted like it was poured from a jug.

So, if you like Casa Mexicana, Las Palmas or any other of the myriad cookie cutter restaurants, this may be right up your alley. Priced and menu'ed the same as all the others. If you want something that tastes more like Mexican food, keep moving...

Try La Placita on South St. in Benton. Real Mexican food.
