We were looking for Mexican and found Cafe Rio on our way back to the hotel from Scheels. The beer selection was awesome and the frozen Margarita was just what i needed on a hot afternoon. Highly recommended.

I love that this restaurant offers to build my meal in front of me with whatever options I choose. There are choices for those who count carbs, fat, or gluten. The food is delicious. They also offer a multitude of beverage options.

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.
