If you are looking for live entertainment and Mexican food, Rio Bravo Arlington may be the perfect place for you. In this new episode of Arlington Eats, our host Cynthia Lemus got inside the kitchen of the Rio Bravo restaurant located at 2208 New York Ave. in East Arlington, to see how they prepare their famous molcajetes.

Ulises Robles, owner of the Rio Bravo and Barra Brava restaurant chain, opened his first location 19 years ago after having worked in the restaurant industry for 16 years.

“I came to the United States almost 35 years ago and my first job was as a dishwasher in a restaurant in Lewisville,” Robles said.

Now he runs five Rio Bravo restaurants and two Barra Brava Sports bars. Rio Bravo Arlington is its largest location with a capacity of 900 people; but what makes this restaurant so special?

“What makes this restaurant special is the live entertainment we have on weekends, we bring artists like Ramón Ayala, Lupillo Rivera, Conjunto Primavera and more. We also have Karaoke night and spots events, and people seems to like our food,” he said.

The most popular dish they have is the Molcajete.

“It is a dish that has four different meats along with hot cheese and spicy sauce; it comes in a molcajete stone.”

Río Bravo Arlington is open Wednesday through Sunday starting at 9 a.m. with different closing hours. Also, it has live music every weekend. For information about the schedule and artists line ups, visit the restaurant Facebook page.
