Every time we have eaten there the food was good. We have tried various items on the menu at various times of the day and also had had their daily specials. Never been disappointed.

This restaurant, truthfully, is not consistent. It might be good one visit and just so, so on your next trip. I've eaten here dozens of times. Usually reluctantly. So for what it's worth, Dine At Your Own Risk...

Rio Ranch Cafe is a very popular place. Service, food, ambiance are all wonderful. Consistently great food, and lots of it. Always good daily specials. Don't miss this local gem. They also have one in Harper, TX as well.

At one time, I would have given this restaurant 5 stars, but in the last year or so, they've had a lot of turnover in the kitchen. Had breakfast there this week, though, and it was excellent.

Always great food. Packed during lunch. Salads beyond great. Same with hamburgers, chicken, breakfast and BBQ.

Had the Asian Salad, which was tasty and had a nice size piece of grilled chicken. Order the dressing on the side so not to have the salad drenched.

If you are looking for a place that is rated good by the locals this is it. Not fancy but friendly and a local favorite. Everything on the menu is good.

This restaurant consistently delivers fresh, delicious meals. I was sorely tempted to order the Chicken Enchilada Special, but my waistline knew that I would be just as satisfied if I ordered one of their many salads, with the dressing on the side. I had the Grilled Chicken Avocado Salad that was loaded with fresh, crisp spinach, hard-boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers... More

We had dinner here with friends. The service is the best. Fast and efficient. The food was very good. Home-style, not fancy, but well prepared and delicious.
