Rio Grande celebrates its 25th birthday with $2.50 margs

It was 25 years ago today that Pat McGaughran and twin brothers Andre and Stephen Mouton opened their first Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant in Fort Collins. Since then, the chain has grown to six stores along the Front Range, all serving those killer margaritas whose recipe is still a secret -- but the effect they can have on you is not.

In fact, the Rio limits everyone to just three of those margs -- which means you'll still have change coming from a ten-dollar bill even after you've drunk your share today. Because in honor of the Rio's 25th birthday, the classic Rio marg is just $2.50 from 6 p.m. until close.

Drink up!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
