This little treasure is a tribute to the original owner's integrity, now owner by a former waitress who has kept the spirit going and opened an annex with live music at times. Especially laudable is the amount of fresh seafood dishes sadly lacking in most...More

Wow. Fantastic. The service was great. The food was excellent. Homemade refried beans (not from a commercial can) and fresh tortillas. Awesome salsa fresca. I couldn't finish my portion, though it was excellent! The restaurant itself is small, so this isn't a place for a...More

My wife and I first found Rio Cafe several years ago and loved it. The food is very good and the people very friendly. It is not an upscale atmosphere but more than makes up for that with the menu and the food. We have...More
