Cafe Rio Daily Specials

UPDATE (31 December 2012): Two days after posting the post below, I had lunch at the Cafe Rio in Grand Junction and found out that they have changed their daily specials. The daily specials web page still does not have the new daily specials listed as of this update, but I show a photograph of how they were posted at this Grand Junction location here.

The updated daily specials list now (31 December 2012) appears to be:

  • Monday: Maria's Enchiladas
  • Tuesday: Pork, Beef, or Chicken Tacos
  • Wednesday: Chicken Tostada Salad
  • Thursday: Yolanda's Tamales
  • Friday: Fire-Grilled Salmon Tacos
  • Saturday: Fried Shrimp Tacos
  • Sunday: Fideo Mexican Pasta

I'm going to miss some of the specials that are no longer offered, especially the rellenos.


Cafe Rio offers a different daily special each day and I have often wondered what was offered on days of the week that I did not eat at a Cafe Rio. The photograph shown next was taken at a Cafe Rio and indicates the list of daily specials.

As the photograph indicates, the daily specials are, as of this writing (29 December 2012), as follows:

  • Monday: Chili Rellenos
  • Tuesday: Coconut Shrimp Tacos
  • Wednesday: Shredded Chicken Tostada
  • Thursday: Pork or Chicken Tamales
  • Friday: Steak or Chicken Fideo
  • Saturday: Fresh Fish Tacos
