Great Plates of Downtown Fort Collins


March 1st – 14th

We’re firm believers in supporting our local community – we donate to local charities, buy from local producers, and host fundraisers – which is why we LOVE participating in Great Plates of Downtown!

Great Plates is a celebration of the Downtown dining community and highlights restaurants offering $25 dinner specials. The idea is: get a deal on your meal and donate your savings to the Food Bank for Larimer County. In its 14th year, Great Plates has grown to be the largest fundraiser for the Food Bank, raising over $100k in 2018 alone!

This year, the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant in Fort Collins is offering a $25 menu for 2 people, highlighting our tasty taco selection, some new menu items,  and, of course, includes a margarita for each person!


Here’s the menu:



Classic Rio Marg or Big Tex Margarita

1 per person



Salsa Trio to Share

choice of Avocado Salsa, Green Chile, Salsa Morita, Smoky Tomatillo, or Atomica



Choice of Six Tacos to Split

Grilled Steak, Tequila Shrimp, Cilantro-lime Grilled Chicken, Beer-braised Carnitas, Baja Fish, or the rotating featured taco



Choice of Two Sides to Split

Garlic Roasted Veggies, Classic Slaw, Papas Bravas, Rice, or Beans


Join us for lunch or dinner between March 1st and March 14th for this deal and support the Food Bank for Larimer County while enjoying a tasty meal. Who doesn’t love Margs (and tacos) with a Purpose?!
