“A Delicious Customized Eating Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

If you like Mexican-American Food, you will like Cafe Rio. They offer a full menu including appetizers, entrees and desserts. This restaurant flows in the short-order assembly line style service much like the Chipotle and Qdoba restaurants, but with a broader menu. You choose your main entree and the servers build it for you, adding toppings to order as you go down the customer line. You can choose from tostadas, quesadillas, tacos, burritos and enchiladas. Then you can customize them to your liking. The portions are generous. It is fast, fresh and delicious.
