We tried this restaurant because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were so pleased. The food is fresh, tasty, and the staff are friendly and seem to really enjoy their jobs. Don't miss the dessert! After having dinner at another place, we almost went back to Cafe Rio just to have dessert.

Its been 2 years since we've been back to Great Falls but we knew we were coming here. Food is always good, lots of staff so it is relatively quick. Fun atmosphere.

The quesadillas with chicken were so good, rice and beans I am not use to that type. The quacamole and chips were tasty. My favorite thing is the Strawberry Lemonaide that is sugar free. So wonderful. The 6 of us had 6 different things, and all was happy and well feed. Military gets 1/2 price on Mondays. Prices were fine... More

Absolutely delicious Mexican food with fresh made tortillas. Only downside is a long wait in line (ours was about 20 minutes) but it is 100% worth it! Restaurant is really cute with uniquely painted tables and chairs and a huge drink bar.

You had to look at an assortment of choices on the wall then step up to the counter and order your meal. It was difficult to hear what the guy behind the counter was saying. Their prices were high. I think Taco Bell would have been a better choice. The fire grilled chicken salad was good.

I have been in here a couple times, with an assortment of people. Our last group consisted of a diehard meat eater, a picky child, a vegetarian, one person with food allergies and one open for anything. Everyone found something they wanted and liked. The menu is limited but somehow they still manage to cover every base. The food is... More

The food was awesome, if you like Southwestern or Mexican food. The homemade flour tortillas are delicious and the meat and sauces are tasty too. The food is reasonably priced. I highly recommend for out of town travelers, as the locals know a good thing when they got it.

Loved the variety of mexican food. Unlimited soda for kids(not sure about adults, I don't drink soda). Kids quesidilla was perfect size for my 4 yr old, and I had a Enchillada and it was really good too. The service was great as well. Its sorta like a subway idea, but with mexican food. Prices are cheap. We went around... More
