This place was packed when we walked inside, mostly families, but also a few couples. I was surprised how busy it was considering I've never heard of the place before. Seems I'm the last to know. Anyway, they have your typical assembly line ordering system, you tell them what you want. What sets Cafe Rio apart is that you can watch meats being grilled and tortillas being made while you wait.
Frank ordered a grilled steak burrito with rice, black beans and hot sauce. Then, he got it coated in enchilada sauce and cheese. Condiments like sour cream and salsa were added to the side.
I ordered two tacos with corn tortillas: pork barbacoa and chicken.
His steak burrito was worlds better than my tacos. It was pretty good. Large and filling. The barbacoa pork was WAY too sweet for my liking and the chicken was bland. The tortillas fell apart, it was pretty disastrous. Thankfully, Frank was a dear and shared his burrito. We also ordered chips and salsa. Eh, not so great. The salsa was WAY too lime-y.
Dinner was around 22 bucks. I'm not much of a fan of the fast-casual eateries. I'd much rather stick to a full service restaurant.
