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 crowd-pleaser, the Rio Grande delights with its lusty fare and lively ambience, yet it's one of the few local places where high decibel levels really do not distract. At its Bethesda location, crowds are stacked up and pleased to hang around for the chips-and-dip combo before the rounds of enchiladas, tacos, sizzling fajitas, chiles rellenos and even broiled quail that emerge with baskets of freshly baked tortillas from the kitchen. We recommend the luncheon El Dorado soft tacos and at night select a tortilla soup, carne asada main course and the outstanding chocolate flan for dessert. Also located at 1827 Library St., Reston, Va., 703-904-0703; and 4301 N. Fairfax Dr., Arlington, Va., 703-528-3131.
