I love staying in Hood River while I travel about. I usually stay at the Hood River Hotel, which I highly recommend, and grab a bite to eat somewhere within walking distance. On my last visit I decided to try El Rio Burrito Bar, which is just a couple of doors down from the Hood River Hotel.
What a great experience. After ordering my food at the counter I found a seat by the ‘open wall’ where I could almost reach out and touch the people walking by on the sidewalk. If my older sister would have been with me I am sure she would have tried to convince me to grab someone and spook them as they walked by, but I was by myself so I kept my hands to myself and watched a small bird as he flitted about.
El Rio uses locally sourced ingredients and has a wide selection of Mexican food, including fish tacos, Greek gyro tacos, spicy chicken tacos, Korean fusion tacos; fire roasted chicken burritos, and Korean beef burritos. They also carry wraps, enchiladas, and salads.
I had the chicken tacos and they were delicious. On my next visit I will try to orders something different, but I would bet I will go for the chicken tacos again. I wish I lived closer so I could go to El Rio more often. Someday!!
El Rio can be found in the center of Hood River at 112 Oak Street, and can be reached at 541-436-0099.
