Service was slow, although it was a Saturday night and busy, I understand. Friends with food and drink, margaritas were good, the food was bland to me, I've ate at the one in Lufkin, I like that one way better than the one in Beaumont. Prices were normal, atmosphere was very loud and busy, you had to talk loud for... More

Always enjoy when dining at Café del Rio, our favorite Place for Mexican food & margarita's. The chips & sauce are always ready, fresh and filling before your meal :-). We always start with the chili con queso with the ground beef added to go along with the sauce, and the burrito or chimichanga meal is what I normally have... More

We came before a Lamar basketball game to have a snack and drinks. The service was OK until we had to wait for our ticket. We were afraid we were going to be late to the game. The food was average, but was a large serving.

Sat on the patio for an early dinner and all I can say is gross. Just the doors going out to the patio were filthy....and this was at 5:00 in the afternoon....you couldn't even see through the dirty glass. At the table, which had to be re-cleaned, even the salt shaker was so corroded with dried gunk (and it wasn't... More

The service was very good. The food didn't seem fresh more like reheated after setting around too long. It really wasn't very good. Next time in Beaumont we'll try some place else.

Ate here on Saturday night, July 16th, on the way to Galveston. They were very busy but the service was very prompt and food delicious. Some of the best Tex Mex I have had in several years. Nicely diversified menu which made choosing entrée kind of tough. Settled on beef fajitas and they were tasty and ingredients cooked/prepared to perfection.... More

In the past has been great. This time awful. Slow service, fajitas came out cold not sizzling, had to wait 15 min for tortillas to eat fajitas, they were not brought out with food, and server no where to be seen. Stuck us in between two large groups in an enclosed area so loud we couldn't hear each other. Band... More

Open and inviting, fiesta-style atmosphere! Once you enter, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff. You may make your way to the bar area, be seated in a cozy booth, or find your group waiting to "surprise" you with gifts and laughter! We have outdoor seating available under our newly covered patio, fans with misters for the hot days, and heaters for the cooler weathered days. On certain nights, we include entertainment (no door fee!) and our singers are request friendly! Parking is available on the property as well as across the street in a neighborhood hotel lot.
