We tried Frio when it first opened and weren’t impressed. So glad we came back! The River Trash appetizer is excellent and all of our entrees were great. The menu is diverse and the food was fresh and a step above the regular southern food restaurants. This one has lots of Texas flavors and really creative combinations. And if you’re a traditionalist, they have a pretty good chicken fried steak too. It’s tucked away and not super crowded. Great for families. AND a great cocktail menu too. More
