“Great Authentic Mexican Food!”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We tried the Rio Cafe for lunch recently and it was great. The food was very authentic with homemade tortilla chips and homemade corn tortillas rice and beans! The owners were very friendly and helpful. The service was great! My husband even found some hot habanaro salsa that he loved. We got some to go and he usually has a hard time finding that perfect salsa with flavor and heat! We will be going back for sure! This is a total hole in the wall place but don't let that deter you! It is great!

“Don't let the hole in the wall facade fool you.”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

The Rio was recommended to us by a local. We're glad he did. The owners are very friendly, there are many great choices and the food is delicious. All of the food, including the chips and salsa, are made here. Get to know Josh, the owner behind the bar. His drinks are yummy!

“God robust and original.”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

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 Mexican restaurants; -and if you want SPICY they will really make it so!
