With such a bustling county like Ventura, it's hard to imagine that a quiet, small town exists. However, El Rio stands out for exactly this reason. This close-knit community embraces the lifestyles in line with both beachside towns and more rural communities, making the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming.

It's filled with expansive fields and strong agriculture, not unlike that of Ventura's founding farms. This mixture of coastal and rural atmosphere makes El Rio stand out. Wheelhouse adores El Rio for all these reasons and more, and serving the locals around here is always a pleasure.
