The restaurant was named after the Lerma Santiago River (Río Lerma Santiago) which is Mexico's second longest river. It is a 600 mile long river in west-central Mexico that begins in Mexican Plateau at an altitude over 9,843 ft above sea level, and ends where it empties into Lake Chapala, Mexico's largest lake, near Guadalajara, Jalisco.
Hugo Jimenez invites you to enjoy his authentic Mexican food from his own home recipes that he brought to Forney with the opening of Rio Lerma.
Hugo is committed to using only the finest fresh ingredients in all his recipes & ensuring that each customer receives excellent customer service with a warm welcome, in a family atmosphere where the whole family can relax and enjoy the Rio Lerma experience.
The Jimenez family will do their best to make you feel at home whether you’re dining with us or just kicking back and socializing over drinks.
