We went early (4:30) on Friday night and were the only ones there but by 5:00 the place was starting to fill up. It was mostly locals, so you know this is a good place. The special of the day was catfish and shrimp so...More

My family and I started off an 80th Birthday weekend by choosing Rio Rancho as a dinner place. First, staff eagerly got tables arrangers for 9 of us. They were not too busy to get our orders taken immediately. We had exactly what we expected...More

Visiting relatives, they took us to this delightful hometown restaurant for dinner. We have many choices of regular American fare as well as local tex-mex entrees. I had a wonderful salad with avocado and olives on a bed of fresh greens. My aunt had an...More

Monday through Saturday, you can get a great breakfast at Rio Ranch Cafe. From the basic bacon and eggs to Migas, it's all good. Nothing fancy, but just good food with good service. Give it a try -- but note that it's closed on Sunday.
