simple food reasonable prices

Rio Ranch Restuarant doesn't look like much from the outside but inside the food is simple and delicious. Prices are easy on the budget. Service is friendly. A small private dinning area is available for groups or parties.

I met a friend here for lunch. It is a very unassuming place - not a lot of atmosphere - just a typical Texas cafe. Everything on the menu looked inviting. It was difficult to decide. I was very impressed with my BBQ plate. The meat was fork-tender and delicious. My friend had a dish called Brisket tacos. The tacos... More

The veggie omelette was very good. Best news is the pictures in the menu which are not at all appetizing do not reflect the quality of the food. The place is low on ambiance but food is good and staff is friendly. I wood upgrade the furniture to something that doesn't look like card tables but. When you are hungry.... More

Very good value and portions. Breakfast and lunch with lots of variety. Good local place with that hometown feel. Try their Fish tacos- magnificent.

We just moved to Kerrville and was looking for a great restaurant for breakfast. We found it! Excellent food, tastes great, good portions and priced right. Not pretentious and the waitresses are very friendly. I would highly recommend Rio Ranch Cafe for the best breakfast in Kerrville.

The cinnamon rolls are fresh, coffee is hot and the brisket hash is fantastic. The waitress was friendly and the food came out promptly. Prices are reasonable. Couldn't ask for more.

NO surprises, just good grub! When a place is popular with locals, you know it's worth a visit. Fancy dining............NO; it's a cafe!

This place is by far one of the best meals in the Hill Country. Not only can you get breakfast all day long but you can also pick up a Man Salad with all of things men want to eat - but it's still a salad. My favorite is David's Taco (fish) or the Nachos or the excellent sweet tea.... More

We are from out of town and looked at Trip Advisor for a recommendation. The service was great and we loved the burrito with a very thin, tasty flour tortilla. The Mexican omelet was tasty but not a fan of so many green peppers. I should have told them to leave them off. Overall, a good place for breakfast
