Rio Grande Cafe: The Right Place for Lunch

It is hard for me to criticize the Rio Grande Cafe. The place has great food, great atmosphere, and generally good service. It has become my “go to” when nothing else will fit the bill for lunch.

During my most recent trip over to Rio Grande, we arrived a little after the noon hour, and we expected a crowd at just about anywhere we stopped to eat. You can imagine our pleasant surprise, then, when despite the crowd (and there was one), we were greeted with a smile, seated immediately, and quickly offered drinks and menus.

I’m a fan of almost all foods Mexican (it’s the beans and rice, see), so rather than parse through the options, I took the daily special. I was treated to a combo of a tamales and an enchilada swimming in refried beans and rice, sided by lettuce and tomatoes. Both were delicious, more than I expected, and my plate was cleared before I had time to notice.

Next time you’re down town, check it out. It’s great for families, for a lunch time tête-à-tête, or groups. A patio shaded by trees makes it nice during the summer, as well.
