While visiting our son we went to dinner at one of his favorite restaurants, Rio Ranch Cafe. He ordered David's Tacos and I followed his lead, was overwhelmed with Blackened Salmon Tacos flavor, crisp Romain lettuce and sauce were perfect compliment. Also the Martha's Tacos were delicious as were the cheese enchiladas and homemade soup. The Johnny's cake at the... More

There are only a few places where we eat out at breakfast time. Rio Ranch is one of these places. They are owned and run by a Christian family. The food and service are excellent and the atmosphere is one where I feel comfortable taking my grandchildren. There is even home made granola and eggs Benedict on the menu (very... More

The wife and I stopped and had breakfast at the Rio Ranch Café while staying in Kerrville, TX on April 11th. Very good food served at this café. We'll definitely do it again the next time we're in town.

What a shock to find such a wonderful restaurant in the middle of auto mechanic shops. I had the Avacado Grilled Salad and I won't have anything else but that EVER! I have it with Italian dressing and the blend of flavors from the grill, the pico de gallo, and the Italian dressing is supreme. Staff is good! It can... More

I ordered a traditional two egg breakfast, with grits, bacon, biscuits and a side of gravy. It was served hot and quickly by a very nice waitress. The coffee was hot and flavorful. Even though there was a large group in the party room she came back several times to top off my coffee and see if I needed anything.... More

The restaurant is just your run of the mill sort of place. Not much atmosphere but that isn't what you go here for, it's the food. The menu is varied and the servings are ample. The price is right. The service is hit or mess depending on the staff's attitude, but for the most par t it's okay.

We had take-out plates and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity. This is a bare bones eatery.......nothing fancy about the place. But Hey! You can't eat fancy!!

On our recent visit to Kerrville, we happened upon the Rio Ranch Cafe. We decided to try it for breakfast. We were greeted quickly by a server who quickly brought coffee and water to our table. I ordered the Migas and my wife had the Huevos Rancheros. I have to say that the Migas were absolutely the best I have... More
