    When this place opened 6-8 years ago, it served up REALLY good, authentic Mexican food with lots of little special details and daily promo deals. Good food for a reasonable price back then. Nowadays, it's just not the same. They've cut corners on so many things, I barely know where to start! The seasonings in their food have been reduced so much that their food is bland. If you want to kick it up a notch with extra sauce, they charge an extra $1 for an extra 3 ounce cup of sauce on the side. $1 each! They no longer have the variety of hot sauces on the condiments stand to tailor your food to your experience. They've also cut corners on their beverage station. Gone are the syrups that you could add to your drink to make it special and instead of 4 special premixed fruit drinks, they only have 2. On Tuesday, they used to have Tasty Tuesday where you could get any one of their entrees for $5.50. Instead they have Taco Tuesdays where you can only get one of their tiny, little tacos for $2.49! Cafe Rio seems to me to be a restaurant whose best days are behind them and doesn't feel the need to really try anymore. It used to be a really well frequented establishment. You could hardly find a place to sit down. Now, on what used to be their busiest night, there was only one other person in the place besides my family. If you want a satisfying experience with a quality fast casual Mexican establishment, I would recommend Cafe Mexicali or even Chipotle!!

    The best location, very friendly respectful staff, clean restaurant, fresh food that is made right in front of you, homemade tortillas, best chips and queso. Plus their rewards offers great savings. Highly recommend them

    I was pretty disappointed by dinner tonight. I ordered the vegetarian burrito and it was just rice and beans wrapped in a tortilla. For $11.39. No vegetables of any kind. They should call it the "no filling" option. Or maybe "rice and bean burrito". But calling it vegetarian to me implies something - fajita vegetables, impossible meat, potatoes, or something. And if it is just going to be just rice and beans, it shouldn't be priced the same as ordering beef or chicken which also come with both rice and beans included. Also the tables weren't really clean and the horchata was empty. I won't be going back.

    Cafe Rio is delicious. I think it's one of the more under-appreciated taco restaurants in town. There's never a big line. The ingredients are really fresh and the meat is delicious. And the tortillas are homemade and taste great. And you can't forget the Lemonade's.
