  • My family went to Rio Vista today and so excited waiting for our food to come. It was sent back many times and think a big major problem is too much on menu. Old Rio Vista did not have Chicken Alfredo, Alligator, etc on their menu. Looks like you offer too many different things. Service was extremly slower than the original Rio Vista and hushpuppies and Chicken were served piping hot in the past. You would do better to reduce size of menu, just the original stuff, and maybe for kids hamburger, hot dog, chicken or grilled cheese. If people want all these other items to to Seafood restaurant like Red Lobster. Stick to the old ways and you will bring the house down. Good luck

  • Order: chicken

  • I was actually heartbroken when the Moreland Avenue restaurant closed. I have missed it terribly. Most women like to be wined and dined on their anniversary. I always just wanted to go to the Rio Vista. So today when we heard it was opened again I was thrilled we went right over. The food and service was awesome. The hushpuppies are close to the old ones, but smaller. But the chicken fries and dressing were A+++++. Loved it. Will definitely will go again. On a Saturday as it is a good ways from Bethlehem, GA. Please open on in Gwinnett or Barrow County. Buffet was offered now, but for me if there were nothing on the menu but Chicken and Catfish hushpuppies, salad and dressing it would suit me fine. Suggestion: Leave onion and tomato off salad, never on the Original salad. Only other suggestion give people a salad bowl full of extra house dressing as it is best on chicken hushpuppies, fries, and salad.

  • Everything lacked salt. Everything bland. Asked for dressing on the side, you guessed it, poured all over the salad. Baked potato left over from a previous meal. Couldn't eat. We arrived as they opened so we know the potatoes were not freshly cooked. Old oil, could taste for ever. Needed antiacid soon after arriving home. Not many guest s so I guess the word is out. Don't go.

  • Order: catfish fillet and oysters, baked potato

  • We couldn't believe when we heard there was a Rio Vista still open. We drove two hours and it was worth it. Can't wait for our next visit. Best Catfish and Chicken in GA.

  • I grew up on Cedar Grove Road, which was behind the original Rio Vista, I could smell the Catfish and hushpuppies cooking and would walk with my brothers to the restuarant and buy a bag full of hushpuppies and fries for .25 cents. Boy how things have changed and its still the same taste. Love that Rio Vista.

  • Order: Catfish and Chicken

  • No matter how busy they are, the owners will stop and answer any question you have about the history of the place. The food is the same and the HUSHPUPPIES are still the BEST.
