Tried this place based on reviews and glad we did. Only had breakfast here once but would definitely return. My wife had the migas and I had my eternal favorite of country fried steak & eggs. Not much more can be said other than that the service was great, the food in generous portions and very well prepared and a... More

I especially love their breakfasts. The variety, the large portions, and the affordable prices. Great place to take the family or friends. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, it's hard to beat the Rio Ranch Cafe for down home cooking. My church has their Mens Breakfast fellowship here every month. Give it a try. You'll be glad you did.😋 Enjoy.

Small in size but not in service, portions or taste! My friend had the Rio Ranch Nachos, chips piled with fajita chicken, avocado, refried beans, guacamole, sour cream and a fresh pico de gallo and I had Martha's Tacos, consisting of corn tortillas filled with fried crispy shrimp, house cole slaw, cheese, guacamole, and buffalo sauce. This and some other... More

I have eaten here more than a few times. It has never disappointed me. The chicken salad sandwich is the best.

We just discovered this place a couple of months ago when in Kerrville, and it is becoming one of our favorites there. We have only eaten breakfast there so far, but it is fantastic. Good prices, large portions, friendly staff. A good old time diner/café feel. Looking forward to having lunch there.

This family owned business does it right. Excellent quality food, friendle fast service, huge portions and very reasonable prices. Its a little out of the way in a small strip center between Kerrville and Ingram across the street from Jellystown RV park (was Guadalupe Rv resort) this place is worth the drive. They have everything from burgers and salads, mexican... More

Junction Highway is busy and fast,so if your headed toward Ingram you will have to look,on your right,to find this place. Very well worth it. The salsas taste homemade and the green salsa is a must try. Breakfast all day,or select from their Mexican,or down home. Full of older locals. I had the vegetarian omelette,hash browns,grits. Great service! Wish it... More

Great barbecue brisket stuffed tamales. What is not to love about that. Good food, service and reasonable prices. Not fancy, very casual and lots to choose from on the menu.

I've been here a few times and some visits were pretty good, others really quite poor. This includes food quality and service, and it has declined over time. This inconsistency has taken the cafe off my list for the time being; hopefully they'll sort their issue out as they have put out some nice meals in the past.

Thank Stuart H
