“The Rio is excellent!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Delicious, El Salvadorean style Mexican food...always fresh and good. Julie is sweet and kind, so I really don't understand the nasty comments. It is a small, cheery, and friendly spot. Do not expect chain style, "American Mexican" food...the Rio is way better than that! Our favorite place for Mexican food on the North coast.

“great 'hole in the wall' mexican”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

I love lots of different kinds of ethnic foods, but one of my favorites is Mexican. In my home town in Colorado, there are lots of variants, but I really love good 'hole in the wall' mexican food. Cafe Rio is right up there with the ones I like at home. One of the reviewers gave a marginal review... I agree it is not a fancy or new venue, but the owner/waitress was friendly and great. We shared the shrimp fajitas and the queso fresco. It was all really good.
