Cafe Rio Draper

Cafe Rio used to be my favorite restaurant. I got tired of paying for extra meat, cheese and whatever else added to a burrito, then pay more to have it smothered. It all adds up-so a drink and a entree gets very pricey. I have started to just make my own chicken burritos at home and add all the... read more

Expensive for a burrito, but Yummy! We get the pork burrito and we pay extra for 'extra meat' otherwise your meat is often just in one half of the burrito! We will go back for sure!

The food is good, if you like Cafe Rio food, which I do of course. Pork salad is the best. But this establishment has smaller portions of meat and rice and beans than other locations. The Cafe Rio in Heber City has larger portions but I had dead flies in my salad (that is for another review) the last time... More

They give you a lot of food for the value. Very tasty and also very popular with the family bunch. Not a bad atmosphere, either. Everything is fresh...made to order right in front of you. I personally like the sweet pork salad. Yumm.

I love Mexican food. Both the authentic, immigrant food and the Ametican Southwestern variety. But I can't understand why everyone is so gaga over Cafe Rio. I have tried their food at half a dozen different locations, and I always find it to be bland and tasteless. What do people see in it? I have tried their steak, sweet pork... More

The food here is excellent and the staff is friendly. The decor is fun but the restaurant is a bit loud for my taste. You can get your food to go which is an option that I usually take.

Each time we come to Utah we go here for their famous pork...it really is good. Food has a very fresh/mex/tex flavor and its always fast and convenient. We will for sure come again. I personally love their tortilla soup...I just always wish is was a littler warmer temp wise. Always seems just a tad more than luke-warm.

My favorite is the Pork Barbacoa salad. So very tasty. Be sure to try the Tres Leches cake, it's the perfect finish (if you have enough room in your belly after eating the generous portions).
