What is Tex Mex. Tex Mex is the blending of 2 food cultures. Take the meats and cheeses of north of the Rio Grande and combine these with the flavours and ingredients found over the border in Mexico and you have some of the heartiest food to ever travel over your tastebuds. This is good food developed to feed the ranchers in the wild west after a long day on the cattle drive. It seems somewhat approprate then that we take this good old taste experience and deliver it to you in a market town like Newton Abbot, just around the corner from the cattle market.
Rio Grande Newton Abbot or Rio Grande Paignton are both ideal places for you to experience tasty food at a reasonable price.

Just mosey along to the Rio Grande in Paignton, right next to the harbour or next to the Clock Tower for the Rio Grande in Newton Abbot to enjoy some of the best Tex Mex this side of Mexico.
