The noisy atmosphere doesn't distract from the goodies served up in freshly baked tortillas. Try the soft tacos for lunch.

Rio Grande Cafe Restaurant Review

: A sure crowd-pleaser, the Rio Grande delights every generation with its lusty fare and happy ambience: It’s one of the few local places where high decibel levels really do not distract. Weekend nights are jam-packed. But in the end, everyone is served a sensational gratis chips-and-dip combo before their rounds of enchiladas, tacos, sizzling fajitas, chiles rellenos, and even broiled quail emerge with baskets of freshly baked tortillas from the kitchen. We love the luncheon El Dorado soft tacos and at night select a tortilla soup, carne asada main course, and the killer chocolate flan for dessert. That’s calorie-loading with a good purpose. The d├ęcor is somewhat corny soft-sell Tex-Mex, but it’s all for good fun. Other locations.
