We have eaten at this Cafe Rio location over 30 times spanning the past 5 years. We've come to expect the same great food, service, cleanliness, and pricing, without a long wait..... and have never been disappointed. Simply put, they do it right - and...More

Truly FRESH fast food--everything (including the tortillas) is made right in front of you! I don't know that it's particularly authentic, but CAFE RIO is exceptionally *delicious.* Every time my parents come out to visit, we make sure we grab lunch here. It's become a...More

Cafe Rio has always been one of my favorites but, my last couple visits have been disappointing. The food is decent, drink stand is a mess, and they are always running low on Horchata and Specialty Lemonades. The tables and seating area were also very...More

I'm a chipotle fan, but I have to say the steak salad was huge and the items on it were tasty. I only ate half and saved the other half for later. The seasoning on the steak wasn't my favorite and the price on the...More

Their pork barbacoa burrito keeps me coming back. It's also available as a salad. Taco Tuesday is also a great budgetary time to visit. The menu has something for everyone. You order and watch as your dish moves through the assembly line to completion with...More

Sorry to all those who talk up Cafe Rio but it didn't meet the hype. It was average at best. Chipotle has them on food quality but Cafe Rio did have a better selection. I did like there Agua de Orchata which was excellent. It...More
