I have to eat here every time I'm in Billings! Great-tasting, satifying food with a variety of dishes to choose from, affordable (I always get the Daily Special -- it comes with a drink at no extra cost), and I use my Cafe Rio app...More

I got the Saturday special of 2 Coconut shrimp tacos... VERY delicious. Mango salsa comes with it - great flavor! Would definitely order this again. My husband got the burrito and it was plenty of food to stuff a grown man... Definitely recommend this place

We like eating here for the fresh food. They make it right in front of you as you move through the line. If you are looking for relaxed and quiet this isn't the place.
