Let me start by saying my hometown is where the original Cafe Rio is and I have eaten there A LOT (I used to go once a week for a long time) and it is one of my favorite places to eat. I have enjoyed Cafe Rio in Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Wyoming and now Nevada. This location is the worst... More

This is some of the best Mexican fast food, I prefer to eat here rather than the other fast food Mexican locations. It may cost a bit more but the quality and freshness of the food is worth it.

I am no fan of mexican food but the pulled pork in a wonderful bbq sauce is very good. Many of these restaurants are around vegas in the northwest.

The food is of good quality and ample portion, but given the price paid I was surprised there were not nachos and salsa as part of the experience. The staff were putting food together faster than the cashier could manage, so the main slow-down was there.

When entering the restaurant we checked several open tables and all were dirty with food left after previous customers. We cleaned our own table and got into the cafeteria style line. The severs were in a rush and took our order without offering any explanation of the options. The food was OK. Portions were large however the tacos I ordered... More

Excellent food moderately priced. Served in aluminum to-go containers save you an extra tip to counter because there is always enough to take home. Excellent flavorful chicken is grilled in plain sight. You proceed down a "decision" line where you can watch fresh tortillas being tossed and grilled as you proceed. Staff is very kind and attentive. Service is fast... More

Where do I start? Hmm..from reading all their praise on the walls, I knew I was in for a real treat. The atmosphere here is cute and colorful. Man, this place is delicious. I can never pick what to order here because it's all so good! The tortillas are to die for. Honestly, what I wouldn't give for that recipe.... More

Did not expect such good food tucked away in a strip mall. Fast service at lunch. Food was fantastic but menus is limited. Good family atmosphere but would not consider it for evening dinner with a date. Fantastic lunch and take out dinner!

Cafe Rio's food is very good, but it's not worth being treated horrible and having to pay money for it! My hubby and I went there on date night and every single person, except for the guy asking what kind of tortilla you want, was so unbelievably RUDE. Even all the way to the cashier. There was 2 ladies that... More
