If you’re 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 presenter Cynthia Lemus entered the kitchen of Rio Bravo Restaurant at 2208 New York Ave. in East Arlington to see how their famous Molcajetes are made.

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

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

He now runs five restaurants in Rio Bravo and two Barra Brava Sports Bars. Rio Bravo Arlington is the largest location with a capacity of 900 people; But what makes this restaurant so special?

“The special thing about this restaurant is the live entertainment that we have on the weekends. We bring artists like Ramón Ayala, Lupillo Rivera, Conjunto Primavera and more. We also do karaoke nights and spot events and people seem to like our food,” he said.

The most popular dish is molcajete.

“It’s a dish that consists of four different meats, as well as spicy cheese and hot sauce; it comes in a Molcajete stone.”

Río Bravo Arlington is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9am and has varying closing times. There is also live music every weekend. Check the restaurant’s Facebook page for schedule and artist line-ups.
