Food is good, place was clean, staff was friendly and not too noisy so as to get in the way of business conversation. The fresh food is the best.

We love Cafe Rio - the fast casual Mexican offers reliably great food. Pick your protein and your type of entree, then select the types of salsa, etc you'd like. Local Tip: Call in your order - the lines are almost always long.
