No freezers. No microwaves. Nothing premade. The staff begins each day, bright and early, hand-squeezing limes, hand-scooping avocados, simmering sauces, and preparing desserts. Cafe Rio Mexican Grill is now a well-known chain with over 125 locations serving fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine to loyal customers across the United States. The crowds that line up at our locations today aren’t the only ones to take notice. We’ve won over 100 awards, from the Best of City Search and the Oxnard Salsa Festival to the Inc. 500 and the Alfred P. Sloan Award. With our commitment to quality, freshness, and authentic flavors, we continue to be one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in the country.
