Sorry to all those who talk up Cafe Rio but it didn't meet the hype. It was average at best. Chipotle has them on food quality but Cafe Rio did have a better selection. I did like there Agua de Orchata which was excellent. It was clean and service was good but the food, average, at that is why we... More

We love the pork burrito at Cafe Rio. Some say the sauce secret ingredient is coke. Whatever it is, we love it and keep coming back.

On Black Friday Cafe Rio had free $10 gift cards with the purchase of a $25 gift card. I bought $300 worth so we go there about once per week and I love it. Every thing they have is good. My two favorites are the pork enchiladas and the tostada. Everything is really fresh and tasty!

Good food! I love there salads and burritos... my favorite meat is the shredded beef. I have to have this a couple times a month or Costa Vida... both are great. Cafe rio is always busy though, sometimes we can't find seating.

The lines are generally long, but that's because everyone loves the food here! Wait for it...you will be glad you did. You watch them prepare your food as you move along the line. Everything is made fresh...even the tortillas are made before your eyes. The horchata is excellent and free refills! Yay! (Always a winner with me.) The prices are... More

I pick up Cafe Rio usually once a week and sometimes more often. All of their food is great! I just hate the long lines, but that's how it is at a place everyone likes!

Cafe Rio started in Utah and it has become a home town favorite. They've remained true to their recipes. The fajita grilled steak burrito with hot sauce, served enchilada style with salsa fresca continues to be my favorite. They recently opened their 100th franchise. A very popular place and a favorite among all of my family members.

As always the food was good, however, the cashier was terrible! Extremely rude and although the staff had made a mistake she was unwilling to offer help and very degrading about the problem. Although it was a minor issue her attitude made it a bad experience. I will be looking for other places to eat in the future like Bajio.

We are never disappointed with Cafe Rio's. We enjoy going there for great food. Not too much atmosphere, usually too noisy but you go there for the Mexican food!

Festive, fresh, busy, quality food and service. You watch them prepare your order as you select the exact ingredients you prefer. The service is fast, friendly and accomodating.
