Always love Cafe Rio, everything I've had is great and the staff is nice, efficient, and helpful. Just be aware that during the lunch and dinner rushes you'll have tk wait awhile in line before getting your food.

I was told that this was one of the better Mexican eateries. This is far from the truth. It is pricey, and the food tastes a bit bland. I personally prefer Del Taco Sol over this place. Place was clean staff was a bit snooty....More

I got the Saturday special of 2 Coconut shrimp tacos... VERY delicious. Mango salsa comes with it - great flavor! Would definitely order this again. My husband got the burrito and it was plenty of food to stuff a grown man... Definitely recommend this place
