Rio Balsas
Just visited Rio Balsas for the first time, started with the normal chips and salsa. The salsa had no flavor other than tomatoes. Ordered the guacamole and it had tomatoes and onions but no flavor other that avocados. For the lunch, I ordered the dinner enchiladas. I asked about the sauce and was told that it was a creamy red sauce. When it came, the sauce looked like chili oil. The beef was greasy, the chicken was good and the cheese was ok because a couldn't open the enchilada to get the cheese out from the oil. Overall a bad experience and I'm not planning in going back.

I have been going to Hayes Oakwood for years and been disappointed for years but not knowing where else to go, I found Angle Automotive and they diagnosed and replaced a light bulb blowing out problem I have had for a long time that several trips to Hayes that didn't correct it and talking my way out of 2 traffic tickets, in an hour and a half it is fixed. Thank you very much, now I can drive to work in the mornings and not worry about getting pulled over. I and my Husband will now be going to you in the future for repairs. Thanks Dawn and Mike.

We live in Atlanta but come to Gainesville regularly to our Lakehouse. Although we consider ourselves "foodies" and eat out all the time at Atlanta's many amazing restaurants, this restaurant is one of our absolute favorites. We never get tired of it. The food is very fresh, the menu is a reasonable size and not overwhelming, and they have some excellent fish tacos and other dishes. The service is perfect and we can always get a table. It's our favorite in Gainesville and our favorite Mexican restaurant across cities!

I had a concern about my daughters brakes and took her car in today to have them repaired. They removed and adjusted them for about 1 hour and put them back. NO CHARGE. THEY SAID THEY WERE OK! Pads looked OK. This is the second time Rogers Automotive could have charged me for a repair and said I didn't need it. What a blessing to have a repair shop where I feel the family owned business will look out for me and my family! He has worked on two of my other cars also and the repair work was excellent.

I took in my vehicle several times, concerned about a check engine light and then hesitation and surging when starting the vehicle. Each time my mind was put at ease and the owners talked with me at length about the problem. Mr Rogers fixed the surging problem and then refused to charge me, stating that he wanted to ensure it was 100% fixed. It is running great now! Thank you for your honesty and hard work. I'm paying it forward!

Nice people, don't bother you while you are looking at their cars, answer all of your questions to the best they can, everything I test drove ran good especially for their prices. 90% of their stuff is $3000 cash or less. Most car lots have high prices, this one is reasonable and they are open to offers. My 03 Mitsubishi only has 150k miles and I paid $2300, so I am happy that I came here off craigslist and bought it.

This place is Wonderful. The husband and wife that own it are the sweetest people you will ever meet. I used them for my ignition interlock device so I had to take my car monthly. They were so accommodating to me and my long work hours. I really felt like they sincerely wanted to help, and I will always keep them in mind for future automotive needs. I highly recommend these guys!!!!

Wonderful food and service! It may seem strange, but order the Rio Balsa Burger-- it was, by far, the best hamburger I have ever eaten. This place has great prices and an owner that will win you over on your first visit. 11/10, I will eat here again and recommend this to anyone. Thanks, Rio Balsa!

Rogers Automotive
Excellent service!! Their honesty is refreshing. They never charge us when they spend time checking things out and don't find a problem. They always ask if they can pick our vehicles up. Rogers Automotive is an amazing repair shop and their prices are well below others in Gainesville, GA
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
