Like Chipotle, you get to pick your meat and toppings. However they have a much better selection of menu items. I love their barbacoa burrito, enchilada style (covered in sauce and cheese). They also have a pretty good rewards program if you visit them with any regularity.

A casual with excellent food which is all prepared on location so it is fresh. Prices are very reasonable. The food is put together right in front of you. The portions are large. It's not fancy but the food is better than many fancy restaurants. Great for takout.

As a Texan who visits Virginia periodically, I know burritos. This place makes great one. I love the pork; I've never been disappointed.

I stopped in with a coworker for a quick lunch. I had the pork barbacoa Burrito and it was really good. Either starve yourself for a day before you go or expect to carry out leftovers. Portions are huge. An excellent value. I'll definitely be back.

Friendly staff helped guide my family through the tricky ordering process. The food was good but nothing great. Kids eat free if you only want them to have quesadillas.

My wife and I ate here in mid-October 2016. I had 2 enchiladas with pork barbacoa and chicken and my wife had quesadillas. We both ate everything served. It was well-prepared and quickly served. The restaurant was clean and orderly. The staff was on point. My wife's only complaint was the quesadillas were a bit messy but she ate everything... More

The food here is excellent, the service is quick and friendly. I have eaten here numerous times and they are consistent. Burritos, enchiladas, and salads are all well done. I highly recommend Cafe Rio.

Special taco deal here on Tuesday. Love the sweet barbacoa meat and the nachos here. Fast food, quality service. Glad they removed the blockbusters for this!
