    We love the Cafe Rio green dressing and buy it by the pint to take home and use on so many things--meat, salads, chip dip, vegetable dip, fish, just about anything you can think of except ice cream!

    The sweet pork barbacoa tacos are unlike any taco I've tried before. I would seriously consider moving here from NYC just to be close to them. My goodness.

    Get a tostada. Saves a few bucks off the normal salad and you only lose a big tortilla, half the dressing, and a "special" lettuce. Worth it!

    Of course you have to try their pork Burrito and salad, but a little known gem is their shrimp taco's they serve on Tuesday's. Fabulous!

    Friday Fideo is the 8th wonder of the world. Load it up with hot sauce, guac and lots of pico for an awesome flavor explosion!

    The quesadilla is a very underrated menu choice. With pork, it's an ultimate comfort food.

    Healthy Secret - ask for a whole wheat tortilla and extra pico de gallo, no charge.

    Not nearly as good as Chipotle, but the enchilada burrito is still tasty and well slathered.

    They service is slow. If the line is long be prepared to wait 30 min. Plus the parking lot is small best to car pool

    This location has earned my Dislike vote. The last 3 times I observed the following: Dirty towel in food, under staffed, curse words from the staff in English & Spanish. Overall bad attitude. Avoid!!

    Don't bother ordering the vegetarian burrito, the employees don't know how to make it and they will charge you extra for guacamole even though it's supposed to come with it.

    Girl that handles the cash register can have major attitude unless her co-worker who shes totally crunching on is working. So beware.

    They forgot to make the phone order we called in half an hour ago... Now I'm here to it pick up, and waiting because they hadn't started on it yet when I arrived.

    Three times now I've made a call in order to go that they've then had no record for when I got there and I've had to wait in a 20 minute line. You're better off just coming in or going elsewhere.
