When we come to Utah everyone tells us we need to eat here. We enjoy it every time. They have great food. We have never had an item we didn't enjoy. However, there are many types of these through out the country under different names. Basically, build your own burrito, taco, etc.

I've always heard great things about this restaurant, but for me it was just average. The prices are average and the food... I've had better. The people preparing the food were friendly and prepared the food in a clean environment. The one big plus about eating here is that you can see into the kitchen and be sure that everything... More

We love Cafe Rio and eat there at least once, whenever we are in Utah. The food is consistently good. We especially love anything with the sweet pork. The fresh tortillas are excellent.

I have had family and friends rave about this restaurant forever. I have eaten there twice now and NOT sure why everyone loves it so much. I was starting to think it was me, then my son and wife agreed with me. It is at best, average. I like Chipolte as a better Fresh-Mex place.

I love the fastness of ordering, the variety of choices of meats or non-meat, seeing my food prepared to my order, with more nutritious lettuce and cilantro. I love the quick in and out in 15-30 minutes depending on whether I am alone or have company and the Price is right! My personal vote is the tostada with shredded chicken... More

I love this place. Their salads are amazing, but their burritos are also great, as is their lime-mint mojioto drink. If you like fresh-mex, you'll like this place. We usually grab a couple salads to go and eat them at home while watching a movie. You can order online and pick it up when you're ready. It's a good price... More

Have gone off and on for years since they opened their first store, but have gone increasingly less over the last 2 years. In our opinion these guys need to: Test and offer new options (that aren't just repacking of their existing products) more often to keep their customer base interested. Work on reducing the lines in some of their... More

My wife and I are originally from Utah and Cafe Rio is a "must stop" every time we visit. I have consistently eaten at Cafe Rio for over 15 years. We love the food and freshness. I can't vouch for the entire menu as I've always stuck with the sweet pork burrito served "enchilada style" or more recently I lightened... More

Not the place to go if your kids are tired and screaming or if you have a migraine. However, the food is delicious and irresistible when you're craving a good enchilada, burrito, tamale or salad. I always get the cheese enchiladas with red sauce, pinto beans, rice, lettuce, pico, and limes. It's enough food to last for three meals but... More
