Usually a nice quick option if you're in the mood for fresh mex that won't take long. Counter / Line ordering where they build to order. Salads, burritos, meat & non-meat options.

I used to love café Rio but the last several times I have visited the lobby has not been clean and the food has been fair at best. Several of the employees were sitting in the lobby area eating while it was not clean. That...More
