Welcome to Cafe Rio Pizza

New Year, Same Us!

Hello and thanks for visiting! We have survived another busy “Hell Week” here in the tourist-haven of Ruidoso and would like to say, once again, just how much we appreciate you all and the many, many years of memories we have built in this place. As always, our outlook for the next few months look the same: expect a couple extended (7-10 day?) closures between major holidays for R&R/renovations and expect weekend dinners to be popping as usual.

We advise to consider pre-ordering your pies a few hours ahead. This helps us to plan long-term in the kitchen, give better estimates to your fellow guests, and provide you a solid time on when to arrive yourself.

Thanks as always for the many years (what, 30 now?) and we look forward to continuing our mission of bringing our community the best pizza our little shop can throw out!

Specials are in rotation and please follow our IG below for updates on us, our product, and anything else going on.

Who are we?

Serving East Coast-style pizza since 1993, we strive to offer the absolute best and highest-quality food and customer service experience possible.

All our products are made in-house from scratch, which means that if you have a question regarding our food or its ingredients, we will always have an answer.

Our recipes have been accumulated through years of professional cooking and employ the highest quality ingredients available.

We welcome your questions and comments, hope that you feel at home, and look forward to your return visit.

NO DISCOUNTS OFFERED ON SATURDAYS OR SUNDAYS

Our Philosophy

We believe that you are our greatest asset and aim to provide the absolute best experience every time you visit. We pride ourselves on our excellent reputation among our followers and push ourselves to always meet and exceed those standards which you all have set for us over these last two-and-a-half decades.

Our food is continuously evolving as we seek out the best possible produce from around the world as well as develop our community relations with local farmers and providers. We source our greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, and basil from local New Mexico farms when seasonally-available.

We thank you all for the last wonderful 26 years. From our humble beginnings selling slices and a limited cafe menu from a tiny shop to our lightning growth over the last several years, we could have never done it without you, our beloved guests both locally and globally. We look forward to the next few decades with you and your families.
