The homegrown Rio Grande chain just opened its first new location in almost ten years up in Summit County, at 182 Lusher Court in Frisco. It's the perfect spot to stop after a leaf-peeping excursion this weekend.

And that should be more than enough in Frisco. Says Shari:

I can't even do one in Fort Collins! Three Rio Grande margaritas at that altitude? Holy schnockered cow.

Have you had a Rio marg? Have you had three in one sitting? What do you think of those drinks? And what's your favorite margarita in metro Denver?
