Mexican Restaurant Review of El Rio in Macclesfield

Our Rating : 8/10

The Spice of South America on the Edge of the Penines!

El Rio is a lovely little Mexican restaurant just off the main shopping street in Macclesfield. So off the main street if was almost a miracle that we found it and only good look that Wendy looked down a narrow cobbled street just at the right moment. This luck however, was well worth it and provided us with a great lunchtime meal.

With the excellent lunchtime menu at only 5.50 for two courses, we all had a great meal without wrecking the budget. The food we experienced was better than most other Mexican outfits we've visited in the UK and the staff were very kid freindly. The kids meal was standard stuff, in our case Chicken nuggets, but the 'real' chips were a bonus, also the small pot of tomato sauce which came with it was a nice touch and saves you having to ask for it.

When you get there, though, watch out that if you look through the front door that you are not put off if you can't see anyone dining inside. The restaurant is a veritable rabbit warren of small rooms and the part you see through the front door is only 3 tables of many. We nearly fell into this trap, and apart from the good reccomendation we had received we may have passed the place by. This would be a big mistake, go for it!
