I don't eat here often, I am not a huge fan of Tex-Mex. However I do like this eatery. There service is always good, their food is always tasty and it's not too hard on the wallet. Get the Brisket Tacos, they rock!

I really enjoy Cafe Del Rio! We go there often. We are glad they are getting a new building that is larger but sad it will be across town. No matter, plan on going just as much. Moving to the corner of US 69 S and Loop 287.

Best Tex Mex Food in town with good service. Love their chips always fresh! Reasonably priced. Small bar area but drinks are served at table as well.

Always friendly greeting when you arrive. Fast, friendly service. Great prices for great food. We love taking the family and friends out to eat and this is where we always prefer to go. There are many other options, but this is #1 for us.

You can't go wrong here. Chips and salsas (red and green) are tasty. Entree options allow you to try a variety of Mexican favorites.
