“Gringo Mexican”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I don't know why this place is always busy. I've gone here several times over the last few years and each time I say I'll never go back.

The good isn't bad it's just not what I consider Mexican food. I like spicy and this place is on the other side of the spectrum.

“"Best Pork Burritos in the World"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Cafe Rio is definitely a family favorite for us. We eat here often because it always so good & the fact that it is about a mile from our home helps too! The pork burrito is definitely our favorite but they also have great salads too! Thanks Cafe Rio for great food that is hot & fresh every time!!!

“Not bad food - rude service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Not bad for a quick fast food Mexican place. We don't live in the area, so our first time here. Only issue was a very rude and inpatient worker on the assembly line (granted, it was very busy). We asked at the register for that workers name and if we could speak to manager real quick..."Who her,? Oh, she is the manager! She is filling in for thea regular manager who is out of town"

Well there you go! Otherwise not bad.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Don't you hate it when your food is dry and flavorless? Well head over to Cafe Rio and you won't be disappointed.

#1 Their meat is always fresh, hot, and juicy and comes with an explosion of flavor.

#2 Their tortillas are handmade right in front of you and are to die for.

#3 Lastly their sauces are smothered over almost every item on their menu and they just bring a tear to your eye!

Go to Cafe Rio and eat somewhere your whole family can enjoy and love.

“Still One of the Best Restaurants Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Although many restaurants have tried to copy the magic of Cafe Rio, I think Cafe Rio still is the number one americanized mexican restaurant in the area. Definatley not authentic mexican, but very tasty food nonetheless.
