Just like abuela’s kitchen, Rio Cristal is outfitted with authentic vintage décor. Order your meal cafeteria-style, and wait for your number to be called. No frills, no thrills—just meat and potatoes, literally. Order the bistec empanizado—a thin, breaded steak large enough to hang off the plate on both sides. The perfectly seasoned cut of meat comes buried beneath a mass of house-made French fries.
