As usual, good food.

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

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. It's a Utah original, and a favorite for locals. Having gone vegetarian, I can still eat here easily with their robust salad option. I used... More

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!!

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....

Had terrible food poisoning after eating here. Having eaten at other Cafe Rios wasn't expecting a 5* dining experience but this place is awful. Check out their health department report, matches my 1 out of 5 stars...

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 cheese... 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.
