I like the burrito bowl and of course with a tortilla on the side. They make their own tortillas onsite so you won't be sorry. The only down fall is I wish they'd give you more guacamole as Chipotle does. They do charge extra, but only give a spoon full.

Really enjoyed the food here, and the service was fantastic! The staff was very willing to answer questions regarding the food, and didn't make me feel stupid for not knowing what things were. Everything tasted wonderful, fresh and well prepared. Highly recommended!

We stopped in for our first ever visit during lunch time and although busy it was very quick for service. The first thing to notice is the freshly made tortillas. Then it was choiced, nice to see the freshness of everything and the fact that it hadn't been held to death in some steam table. Everything was very tasty and... More

Two days ago I ordered a burrito. However, the tortilla was so soggy I emptied the contents. Food inside was good, but I didn't order a burrito without a tortilla. Tonight I ordered three different kinds of tacos. Yet again, the tortillas are all soggy and gross. Same, the contents inside were good, but I didn't order a tacos without... More

Not only is that like the most yum delish choice you can make here, they have fresh horchata to drink, and they also give free kids cheese quesadillas to all who ask. Converting from stamp to app reward program soon. 10-12 stamps gets free plate.

I had a coupon, so my husband and I decided to stop and see if what we had heard about Cafe Rio, was true. Oh Boy! Was it ever! While the line was long, it moved quickly and soon we were enjoying our Lunch. It was super.

Love their sweet pork - in a bowl, in a salad, in a burrito. Great enchilada style at no extra charge. The guacamole side isn't worth what they charge. The Horchata & Lemonades are quite good.
