cafe rrrrrrrrrrrio!!

Ok, i don't want to get too excited about this because for gosh sakes i'm supposed to be a vegetarian, but did you hear that Cafe Rio is opening in DC? And opening with a bang - apparently they are building 9 Cafe Rio's in the DC area. First store is set to open in Olney, MD at the end of April. Who is up for an April 30 lunch in Olney? I have a recurring dream about their sweet pork barbacoa burrito. I actually haven't eaten one since I became a vegetarian in 2005, but given recent events over the past two weekends of gluttony, I can no longer be classified as a vegetarian, at least where pork is concerned. Thank you bacon and The Boss.

Thanks to Sherpa for the cafe rio tip.

naomi and i were JUST talking about CR this weekend—i have to confess that it's not my favorite... i guess i never fully immersed myself into provo culture.

ha! love hannah's comment because i was just about to say the same thing! perhaps it's time i try it again with a clean slate and see what everyone loves so much.

i say the three of us girls give it a go once it's here and you can show hannah and me what it's all about. (well, 4 girls if you count E.)

h&n, note that i haven't had cafe rio since 2005, so i really don't remember what it tasted like. i just remember the green salsa and sweet pork, oh man! let's definitely make a date of it!

i will eat it in your birthday honor, heath. both days. :)

Lunch at cafe rio in t minus five mins. Jealous. I would suggest getting some when you come out here but it sounds like you would want to save yourself for dc rio

Chello, they are building on in Manassas in front of KMart. I guess it's pretty cool.
