This is still one of my favorite tex mex restaurants around. Even though they've expanded and grown throughout the state, they've still retained their good taste and quality. My favorite is the sweet pork salad, a winner!

I decided to stop by cafe Rio for lunch with one of my college friends, when we entered the line was really long, but we chose to stay anyway. I got the pork burrito, and my friend got chicken tacos. We were satisfied with the food! And the price is easily affordable for us college kids!

I go to Cafe Rio because I like the food very much. Whenever I go there with family, we always have a great time.

Lets be clear, this community has mistakenly been raised on franchise food. I say this place wins but it is what it is and nothing more good job.

Me and my wife go here as often as possible. the best tex-mex food I've ever had. their should be one in every town city and state in the world. Doritos and salads are to die for, always get an extra side of the house dressing..

I don't know exactly why, but this place is ALWAYS good. I think my daughter would eat here every meal if we let her. Everything is fresh and tastes good. Selections for the vegan and the carnivore.

Cafe Rio used to be our favorite, they were awesome. Then they moved. Every time we order they mess up. The service is slow, the staff does not seem to know what they are doing anymore. They made our tacos different than they used to, the lettuce is cut much larger, and they can't seem to get our To Go... More

We were not prepared for the cafeteria style service that they offer here. We should have spent more time checking out the menu on the wall. We felt rushed and a little confused as we went through the line. If we had been more experienced diners there it may have been better. By the time we got to our table... More

I absolutely love Cafe Rio. This new location is lovely and spacious. They were training several new staff members when I was in, so the service was not as quick as usual but the food is consistently great!

Took the family to Café Rio with friends from California. It was nearly 7pm on a Friday and the place was full, Nice service, large plates of food. Nobody went home hungry. All home made food with fresh flour tortilla's. Not overly fancy but the food was great.
