  • ChefMozEl Rio is definitely off the beaten path, sitting just a block north of Admiral amongst wholesale produce warehouses, but plenty of people know "where it's at"...in both senses of the phrase.It's a cash only establishment, and be prepared to wait at lunch as it gets plenty of downtown refugees. The wet burrito is the mainstay of the menu, and you can get any entree "wet", as in covered in salsa and melted cheese. But I digress, the wet burrito is a large item filled with rice, beans, cheese, and your choice of meats, about 6, I believe, from carne esada, and chorizo sausage, to marinated pork, beef tongue, and pork cheek. I had the carne esada, although I was sorely tempted by the lengua. The burrito was heartily delicious, although the carne esada was a bit bland. My partner for the day's gustation seconded that opinion with his soft tacos, although he liked the chorizo taco he had. I also noticed these huge meat sandwiches which I will try next time. The table next to us had two dry , and two wet, which I would never had thought to try, but it looked very good.Price is also great at El Rio, the wet burrito was $5.50, and was easily a meal. My partner had three of the $1.99 soft tacos, which he filled with three different meats. Great idea, gotta remember that one as well. There are a number of seafood entrees that look interesting, but on a number of visits, I've never gone to far from the wet burrito.El Rio Verde is not much to look at from the outside, and frankly, not much better on the inside, although it is clean and simple, but the food coming out of that little kitchen is eye candy enough.

  •  The "Wet Burrito" is a must try, get it with chorizo if you want to add some spice and flavor

  •  Ok, this is the ultimate tip: on the weekends they make Pozole. It's a special soup with pulled pork & hominy. It's absolutely outstanding. You're welcome in advance. Love you all, Jeff.
