Reliable Mexican

Good "American" Mexican!!! This is our go to place when we don't feel like cooking and want some take-out. You can order on line and then pick up in a short time. Good tacos, burritos and salads. Hardly any spice so good for kids and those that can't stand the heat.

As soon as I get off the plane in Salt Lake City, Utah when visiting your family I go straight to Café Rio. My whole family knows the drills and they are all prepared! NEVER have I had such Mexican food anywhere and I have eaten in Mexico City an all over the entire U.S. because Mexican is our FAVORITE... More

This is one of my family's favorites. We love the pork salad. Salmon tacos are great too. We also love the green house salad dressing - it makes everything great!

This is a very popular restaurant chain. The one in Draper is as good as any of the others. It is very loud at this restaurant. I do not like the feeling that I am hurried with my order and sometimes the people yell at you if you are not fast.

This location is one of my favorites. I live in Utah County, but work close to this one. I have never had a wrong order, or have them run out of ingredients at this location.

We go to Cafe Rio every once in awhile and we always split a barbacoa pork salad. We have gotten the burrito at times and that was good too. I didn't like their drinks. Their special drinks are supposed to be fancy and delicious but I didn't like the taste of any of them.

This eatery is similar to Chipotle, but each entree is served in a freshly prepared soft flour tortilla lined bowl. The tortillas are prepared continuously right in front of the consumers. Super delicious and very fresh!!

Great food, but not as friendly of service as I'm used to at a Café Rio (might have just been the day.)

Liked- Food and fresh tortillas! Dislike- Crazy way Draper city has made getting to the restaurant! Sometimes just thinking of the access- I go elsewhere....
