First visit was on a Friday and the special of the day was Salmon Tacos! The tortillas are made fresh while you watch and the food is assembled in front of you for a very tasty and healthy meal.

Cafe Rio is located across the street from the hotel that I was staying in and serves a hearty, tasty, meal which can be healthy if you choose what you are eating wisely. I had the grilled chicken burrito with beans, rice and salsa.

My office weekly brings in lunch from Cafe Rio. I almost always order the pork Barbacoa tostada with the lime dressing; it is addictive. The dishes are plentiful and delicious and everyone in the office always looks forward to Cafe Rio lunch day.

Really nice food. Simple, tasty and for me the most enjoyable Mexican food in the area. Try the Barbados tacos...or anything with instantly made tortillas...
