Great place for some great food. I would highly recommend the Pork Burrito and make sure that you go "enchilada style" with the sauce. It will blow your mind!

Cafe Rio has always been a favorite, but on our last visit, just a few days ago, my dinner was disappointing. I usually love Care Rio's black beans, but that night they were practically inedible. They were way too watery, which pretty much ruined my tostada. What's going on in the Orem Cafe Rio?

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
