Cafe Rio Mexican Grill to open Wednesday in Rockville

Cafe Rio Mexican Grill will open tomorrow, Wednesday, June 27, 2018, at 10:30 AM at 10062 Darnestown Road in Rockville. This will be the Salt Lake City-based Mexican chain's 117th location in the United States. Cafe Rio is fast casual, so it is more of a direct competitor with Chipotle than with Chuy's or Uncle Julio's.

The first 300 people present for the ribbon-cutting at 10:30 will receive a free meal and beverage. A giant burrito will be on hand, as well as a $2500 check to Montgomery County Public Schools. “Cafe Rio fans in Rockville have been requesting a Cafe Rio for a long time, and we’re ecstatic to join the community,” Cafe Rio Chief Marketing Officer Todd Smith said in a statement Monday. “We’re proud to serve made-from-scratch, delicious food, and we credit our success to our customers’ dedication to the same fresh food, made fresh mantra.”

  1. We don't need any more of the f'n places where you have to stand in line like cattle to order a meal. What we need is quite, sit-down restaurants where we can enjoy being served after a hard day's work. This place is probably full of hard, cold, wood and metallic surfaces. Like the new, terrible Cava places. Uck.

    1. If you don't like the style "Sara" stay the fuck away. This style of service wasn't meant to cater to the Republitard crowd you mingle with. Take you cow cash back to Trump land.

    2. ^^ Trump Derangement Syndrome is a term applied by some writers to describe critics of US President Donald Trump, including liberals and progressives, whom they accuse of responding to statements and political actions by Trump in a manner verging on the irrational, without regard to his actual position or action taken.

    3. Looks to me like the derangement began with the "f'n" comment about the style of restaurant. TDS is viral.

  2. "What we need"...thanks for speaking for the collective 'we'.
