Very busy with a soccer team of kids but the service was still great and the food arrived promptly. Very good pizza. Cash or check only, also not a problem. We will go back.

While the pizza was good, we had to wait over 45 minutes to even get in the door. And the kitchen was slow because they had so many customers and a limited number of staff.

This place is small so if your looking to eat inside make sure to call to see if they have room. We went at around 7:00 on a Friday night and got a table luckily but our order took about an hour. They told us it was going to be a while because they had a lot of call in... More

Awesome hand tossed pizza. Traditional Italian thin crust. Be sure to go or order take out !! Be prepared to wait and it's cash only.

This is a little hole in the wall that has very good pizza. Don't be put off by the look from the street. The service as very good and everyone was very friendly. I would definitely eat here again.

This is a great little pizza place. I won't lie: I've had better pizza before, but Cafe Rio's is definitely above average. And not just relative to other Ruidoso restaurants; I would probably eat at Cafe Rio even if it were located in my home town.

Great pizza, don't let the crowd turn you away because the wait usually isn't as long as you're told!

If you don't mind waiting for a table to open up... And being scowled through the window by the pizza making chef... It's a great meal ! I can see why there's a line out the door ! The restaurant choices in Ruidoso are getting slimmer on each of our visits. This pizza was probably the best pizza I've ever... More

Because of the rave reviews on trip advisor, we just had to try this place for lunch. My husband had a slice of their pepperoni pizza and I had their Tzatziki appetizer since I wasn't very hungry and also love Greek food, plus they only had 2 choices for a single slice of pizza. The Tzatziki was terrible. It had... More
