Unless you're already aware of its allure, it's easy to pass by Rio's Brazilian Cafe. But once you're inside, the smell of authentic and delicious Brazilian fare supersedes the somewhat questionable atmosphere.

The menu might be overwhelming if you aren't familiar with the cuisine, but the easy-going staff will walk you through your order. Try a sampling of their gluten-free cheese breads, savory vegetarian cupcakes and an order of yucca fries to get a taste of all their most popular dishes.

Seating is limited inside the humid dining room, so we suggest taking your appetizers and beers out to the funky outdoor patio.
