“We love Cafe Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We ordered a burrito and chicken nachos, there was enough food to feed all 3 of us. When we ordered the nachos the employees began to sing Nacho Nacho man.

“Welcome Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It is not just another Mexican chain restaurant. The food is made to order and is full of great tastes. The restaurant is friendly and fast and always busy. The nachos are my favorite, especially with all the toppings. Recommended for families and singles.

“Everything is divine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We were so excited when this opened up! Everything is so good, fresh, and made from scratch. You may have to wait in line to get your order but it is worth the wait. They give out free cheese tortillas with a strawberry for kids. Try it, you will LOVE it!

“Taco Tuesday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

I had driven past Cafe Rio numerous times and finally stopped there on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was hopping as it was their Taco Tuesday. The flour tortillas are made fresh in front of you, so soft yet with just the right amount of crispness, best I've ever had! I tried the beef, chicken and sweet barbacoa pork tacos, cheese is melted, nice fresh crisp lettuce and a cup of fantastic pico/salsa to put on top. Top it off with rice and beans, plus a strawberry lemonade with free refills, all for under $7! Cafe Rio is awesome, it will be a regular stop for me, the sweet barbacoa is my favorite. I only wish I would have stopped there sooner, will try their enchiladas next.
