Canteen Food Hall at Rio Hotel & Casino Las Vegas

Rio Hotel & Casino Introduces the Canteen Food Hall

The Rio welcomes six new dining destinations to our ever-changing resort in January 2024, in the newest Food Hall in Las Vegas, the Canteen Food Hall.

When you meet us at Canteen, what you’ll notice first is the care that goes into each meal. All items are made-to-order and never pre-packaged. There’s nothing mall-style about the newest addition to the Rio in Las Vegas.

Next, the variety. As you may have seen in Thrillist, Eater, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Canteen’s options are vast, and they’re delicious.

Get To Know The Food Hall Offerings

The lineup features renowned local, national and first-to-market establishments such as Tony Luke’s, celebrated for its South Philadelphia cheesesteaks, alongside pioneering concepts like Nama Nama, an original Japanese street food experience. Attaboy Burger, Chef Alex Resnick’s first-to-market burger establishment committed to delivering perfectly executed simplicity, also graces the scene. Ramen enthusiasts can indulge in the creations of Ramen Master Fu at Shogun RamenSouthland Burrito Co. introduces a groundbreaking Sonoran-style burrito concept by James Beard Award Nominated Chef Marco Herrera, while Tender Crush, an exclusive chicken tender venture by Chris Barish and Julie Mulligan, boasts unique sauces capturing the essence of all five New York City boroughs. This dining destination promises a dynamic and unforgettable culinary experience for all.


Southland Burrito Co.

A love letter to the rich culinary history of the Southwest, Baja and Northern Mexico, Southland Burrito Co. is set to become one of the first restaurants in the market to specialize in Sonoran-style burritos. Transporting guests to the laid-back, coastal towns and sunny weather of the region, every aspect of the restaurant invokes the feeling of backyard gatherings with friends and family.


An homage to his experience as a first-generation Mexican American and the flavors that shaped his cultural identity, Chef Marco Herrera’s expertly curated menu features dishes like burritos and quesadillas, all made with a fluffy, crepe-like regional variation of the flour tortilla.


Perfect for both a sit-down meal or an on-the-go stop, Southland Burrito Co. offers a contemporary twist on crowd-pleasing burrito mainstays like The Tejano, made with brisket barbacoa, rice, beans, cabbage, house salsa, jalapeño crema, onions, cilantro and cheese; and the Chicken Californio, made with pollo asado, french fries, guacamole, cheese, beans, jalapeño crema, cilantro and pico.


Shogun Ramen
The result of a partnership between world-renowned, Master Ramen Chef Foo Kanegae and restauranteur Takashi Segawa, Shogun Ramen is serving umami by the bowlful with an ever-evolving lineup of nostalgic, yet innovative ramen meant to be savored to the very last drop. Known as one of Japan’s most influential ramen creators, Kanegae previously served as the Master Chef at world-renowned ramen chain Ippudo Ramen where he created over 600 types of ramen and was hailed as a key player in the restaurant’s international expansion into the United States, Southeast Asia, the United Kingdom and Australia.


Hailing from Fukuoka, Kyushu, the birthplace of tonkotsu ramen, Chef Kanegae has continued to hone his craft, riding a fine line between traditional and avant-garde. Shogun Ramen inside the Canteen Food Hall will mark his third restaurant in Las Vegas. A testament to its namesake, Shogun Ramen embodies Kanegae’s relentless quest for the new while preserving the traditions of Japanese cuisine and is a symbol of his continued reign at the top of the ramen world.


Tony Luke’s
A name that is synonymous with the iconic sandwich, South Philadelphia’s legendary cheesesteak chain Tony Luke’s is making its west coast debut at the Canteen Food Hall inside the Rio Hotel & Casino. A story of humble beginnings, Tony Luke’s began as a neighborhood sandwich shop before being catapulted into stardom with its crave worthy specialty favorites like the roast pork Italian with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone, chicken cheesesteaks and chicken cutlet. Made exclusively with high-quality ribeye, Tony Luke’s take on the classic cheesesteak has earned him critical acclaim from the likes of EATER, New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Zagat and many more.  For over 30 years this humble sandwich shop has become the definitive cheesesteak the preferred destination for both Philadelphians in the know and visitors up and down the Eastern Seaboard.


Tender Crush
Chris Barish & Julie Mulligan, founders and visionaries of Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, are bringing the first outpost of their new chicken concept, Tender Crush, to the Canteen Food Hall. Inspired by the melting pot of flavors born of the five NYC Boroughs, Tender Crush delivers New York’s fresh take on chicken tenders. Available fried or grilled, with a bevy of sides, sandwiches, and sauces, they deliver flavor in a big way! Whether it’s familiar favorites, or innovative remixes (think Bird Pepper, White BBQ, and Sweet Sticky Chili), this fast-casual concept delivers quality food with bold flavor, for a solid taste of NYC.


Nama Nama
From the creators of Las Vegas Strip favorite Tekka Bar, this street food style sushi restaurant, Nama Nama transports guests to the bustling streets and hidden alleyways of Tokyo. Obsessed with providing the highest quality sushi experience, the restaurant is meant to capture the spirit of communal dining spaces and social atmosphere of street food stalls throughout Japan. With a focus on fresh seafood and traditional Japanese flavors, the menu will feature made-to-order handrolls, cut rolls, poke bowls, nitro matcha and sake on-the-go.


Attaboy Burger
After working with some of the culinary scene’s biggest names like Jordan Kahn, Jose Andres, Ray Garcia and Chris Cosentino, Chef Alex Resnick is set to open his brand-new burger restaurant Attaboy Burger inside the Canteen Food Hall. Adopting a “less is more” mindset, the short, but straightforward menu will focus on doing a few things perfectly, offering guests a choice of just four burgers—the single smash, the double smash and fried bologna sandwich. Simple and crafted with expert precision, Attaboy Burger reflects Resnick’s philosophy of packing as much flavor as possible, without adding unnecessary toppings or over-the-top additions.
