Cafe Rio in Lake Forest Not Open Yet...But There's a Sign
Among all the posts that I've written here this year, none have gotten more comments and curiosity than the one where I announced that the Utah-based chain Cafe Rio was opening its first California outlet in Lake Forest.
Nevermind that there's already excellent Mexican all over our fine county -- people seem to want this place to open, and to open quick.
In any case, the announcement that they were coming our way was back in May. And what of its progress? Better than a few months ago.
Up until now, there wasn't even a sign to indicate where the place was going to end up. Now there's at least a banner and a chain-link fence around the storefront, which used to be a computer store.
Since it'll be a few more few weeks (maybe months?) continue to frequent all great joints we're already blessed with.
