Cafe Del Rio - Closed

1821 SE Tenth Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-463-5490

Location Description:

This busy, popular Tex-Mex joint serves the best fajitas in town -- stuffed with chicken, steak, or shrimp, seasoned and marinated, popped into a sizzling skillet with a mix of yellow squash, zucchini, onions, and green and red peppers and served with a side of melted butter. Puffy, homemade tortillas make the perfect blanket for this delicious affair, and extras like grated cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and refried beans take your meal off the caloric charts. Lauderdalians return for a spicy salsa paired with tortilla chips, meaty enchiladas, and chile-sauce tamales - and every 8-year-old's dream: free soft ice cream dispensed from self-serve machines.
