MANDY JOHNSON - OWNER
Mandy stepped in as the owner of Casa Rio in November 2018. Prior to that, she'd done the payroll and bookkeeping for Jay, the founder of Casa Rio.
"I was ready for a new challenge, and I saw the great restaurant that Jay built. When Jay wanted to retire, I felt I could take Casa Rio to the next level."
Mandy learned every aspect of the restaurant business, expanded the catering offerings and purchased a food truck in the first few months. She built on the talented team already in place and continues to strive to make Casa Rio the go-to destination for authentic Tex Mex cuisine.
RENE PEREZ - HEAD CHEF
Rene is the heart and soul of our kitchen. Where would we be without his mouth-watering secret recipes and delectable specials dreamed up daily.
Rene has spent his life creating authentic Tex Mex, learning first from his family and then working in cook and kitchen positions until coming to Casa Rio. His talent made him the head of our kitchen, and we are grateful for his unique contributions.
OUR SERVICE AND KITCHEN STAFF
Casa Rio prides itself on being a family-friendly destination where you'll always be greeted with a smile and treated with respect.
Our magnificent service, kitchen and bussing staff are the ones that make sure we deliver on that promise. They are looking forward to serving you soon!
