Our Story

In 1984, Rio Bravo Cantina was founded by Ray Schoenbaum. It was an instant hit, becoming THE place to go in Atlanta for Tex-Mex food, handmade with the freshest ingredients, eager-to-please service, and an atmosphere filled with hot fun, cold beer and icy margaritas. Known for the motto, “Rio Fresh, Rio Fun, Rio Bravo,” the Rio Bravo dynasty quickly spread throughout the metropolitan area and on to various regions in Florida.

In the early ‘90s, the company was sold, eventually leaving the market entirely. Every year since then, Ray has received thousands of requests to bring back the concept. So at his first opportunity, he pulled out the archives, dusted off the original recipe books, found a few old friends who remembered the “secret formulas,” and even added some new items to accommodate today’s evolving tastes.

We are excited to now offer our Fiesta Spot with the ambiance and food that Atlanta natives remember so fondly.  With accommodations for 50-275 guests, every event is guaranteed to be a fiesta that guests are talking about for years to come. Planning an event at your office, home, or other venue?  Allow Ray’s Rio Bravo to cater your special occasion.  We’ll bring the fiesta to you!

For those of you who knew us, “Welcome back!” For those of you who are finally able to experience what your friends, family, neighbors or coworkers have been raving about, “Welcome to our family.” We look forward to serving you!
