Cafe Rio Restaurant Review

: Café Rio is a fast casual restaurant based in the Western States that serves up huge portions of Mexican food using mostly locally sourced ingredients. Like an assembly line, guests start by ordering basic tostadas, salads, burritos, enchiladas and tacos and then choosing from a large variety of ingredients like grilled meats, lettuces, vegetables, cheeses, beans, rice and salsas. Some come for the daily specials like chile rellenos, coconut shrimp tacos and pork or chicken tamales. Although Café Rio does not serve alcohol, they do have a rather good dessert menu.
