Pinto Beans vs. Black Beans: Whose Side Are You On?

You walk into a Café Rio. You stop and you take a big deep breath—can you smell the freshness of real Mexican restaurant recipes cooked from scratch? Can you feel the care that goes into every hand-scooped avocado and fresh-chopped bunch of cilantro?

You know what you want to eat, because you’ve been craving it all day: a vegetarian burrito, stuffed to the brim with cilantro-lime rice and beans. It’s deliciously packed with protein and filled with fiber and the best thing you’ll have this week.

We get it. You love it. Melty, tender, oh-so luscious. It’s the slightly sweet, slightly spicy, utterly unforgettable sweet pork barbacoa from Café Rio Mexican Grill.
