Celebrating six years along the Rio Cuale, El Rio BBQ • Bar brings slow, wood-smoked barbecue to Puerto Vallarta.

The spacious dining area, panoramic palapa and sandy beach make El Rio BBQ • Bar the perfect choice for any special occasion, whether you're a party of three or a group of 300. Be sure to check out our event's page or like us on Facebook for updates on afternoon live music, evening tribute shows and special events. Smell the smoke? See you soon upriver!

"Best pork ribs I've ever had. Great food, live music and dancing in the sun by the river. It just doesn't get better than that!"
