This place has the most amazing menu featuring high quality meats. My favorite is the pork barbacoa. All the ingredients are fresh including the tortillas which are made right in front of you. Its a busy place but dont be intimidated by the line. It moves quickly or you can call ahead.

This used to be my favorite location, but after tonight I will no longer be using it. The main reason we choose to eat at Cafe Rio as opposed to their competition is the chocolate cheese flan. I purposely called my order in to make sure that they had it. When I got there to pick it up they were... More

Just went to Cafe Rio for my birthday, as I have for many birthdays in the past. From the farm, directly to the Cafe. No freezers or microwaves. Made from scratch, and it is SO tasty.

This was a different type of service for us, it is where you pick what you want and they put it together for you right in front of your eyes. The food was excellent, atmosphere was great and the price was reasonable. we will go back here again.

My family members all have a favorite go to menu item. My choice is the steak salad. I love the house dressing. I would buy it if they bottled it!!! The salad is big enough for two meals.
