Can't go wrong no matter what you decide to order. Barbacoa is the star, whether it's in a burrito or in salad. Great flavor steak, perfect seasonings on all choices.

First visit was on a Friday and the special of the day was Salmon Tacos! The tortillas are made fresh while you watch and the food is assembled in front of you for a very tasty and healthy meal.

Cafe Rio is located across the street from the hotel that I was staying in and serves a hearty, tasty, meal which can be healthy if you choose what you are eating wisely. I had the grilled chicken burrito with beans, rice and salsa.
