I've been to Cafe Rio at least 50+ times in my life and this location at least a dozen. This particular location is the worst. They give the smallest portions of others I've been to. The food didn't taste fresh this time either. They were skimpy on the meat in the salad & tostada and VERY skimpy on the salad... More

Did not have any steak ready - Floors were sticky - Tables were not clean - Has the Pork Tostada - Pork was sweet and tasty and rest of the ingredients were fresh - Normally would recommend Cafe Rio anywhere, but this was not their best day

I've ordered salads online twice and marked to substitute a corn tortilla. They did not substitute either time. I think it's a problem with the way the ordering system reports to the store, but it's really annoying.

Every time we've been here we've had to queue for around 10 minutes, but every time the food has been worth the wait. Everything is delicious but if pressed for a recommendation it would be a pork burrito, enchilada style with pinto beans and rice. :-)

Always check your takeout because they have made mistakes about 40% of the time, but the staff is nice and the food is yummy. Service takes awhile so takeout is usually your best bet.

It is our first time to travel at Utah and had something like Mexican dish, but to my surprise the food was excellent and love the variety of drinks.

I used to love Cafe Rio but the food is not as good as it used to be. The service was terrible and slow. The restaurant was dirty, guacamole old and brown, soda machine out of order and the lady making tortillas was using her phone with her gloves on and then going back to making tortillas! I keep trying... More

We moved away from Utah in 2003 and when we return, Cafe Rio is a must do at least 2-3 times during our 5-7 day visits. It's that good. The burritos are excellent, but it the salad with the creamy avocado dressing that are phenomenal! Treat yourself and enjoy!

Love Cafe Rio but this location needs some work. Staff is irritable and non-communicative. Every time we order to-go online, they forget or screw up the order and today's order was stone cold, wrong ingredients that were in very small portions. Bummer!

Cafe Rio when they started out was good if you liked Taco salads, but as they have expanded their customer service and product have gone downhill while their prices have gone up. Four out of my five last visits have not been acceptable. They are usually out of something whether it be salmon or steak or coconut shrimp tacos or... More
