OUR STORY
Rio Ranch opened in January 1992 as a partnership between Augusta Foods and the Hilton Westchase, where Executive Chef San Hemwattakit continues to execute the Rio Ranch concept founded by both himself and Chef Robert Del Grande of Café Annie.

No other restaurant affords diners the Texas Hill Country ambiance within bustling city limits quite like Rio Ranch Texas. Guests have long enjoyed the unique atmosphere afforded by the tranquil sounds of water flowing through a mini-creek, the 30-foot tall limestone fireplace, authentic Cedar posts, and stone floors, all of which were inspired by early Texas ranch houses.

The full service Bar ("Saloon") was built with pieces of Texas history. The wood used in the ceiling of the bar was salvaged from a pre-civil war barn. While the sprawling mural in the main restaurant depicts one of the last trail rides across Texas in 1890. The authentic atmosphere is underscored with a 22-foot long solid mesquite wood bar, hickory chairs and punched-tin lighting fixtures created by a variety of Texas artisans.
