Tex MEX that is unique

When you first walk in it looks like a fast food restaurant . It is actually more, it is like a Mongolian Restaurant where you select your food and they prepare it too order. so be prepared to know what you want. Salads are huge and so are the burritos.

Love Cafe Rio. Not a fancy place, and many use it as a take out place. But their chicken, pork, or beef salads, burritos, etc. are some of the best. Cilantro dressing superb! We frequent this restaurant both in St. George and Las Vegas. We have used their foods to cater family parties of 30 or more. It is a... More

The steak salad with the tomatillo dressing is to die for. We split one and it was enough. I go there everytime I am in town.

This is still one of my favorite tex mex restaurants around. Even though they've expanded and grown throughout the state, they've still retained their good taste and quality. My favorite is the sweet pork salad, a winner!

I decided to stop by cafe Rio for lunch with one of my college friends, when we entered the line was really long, but we chose to stay anyway. I got the pork burrito, and my friend got chicken tacos. We were satisfied with the food! And the price is easily affordable for us college kids!

Lets be clear, this community has mistakenly been raised on franchise food. I say this place wins but it is what it is and nothing more good job.

Me and my wife go here as often as possible. the best tex-mex food I've ever had. their should be one in every town city and state in the world. Doritos and salads are to die for, always get an extra side of the house dressing..

I don't know exactly why, but this place is ALWAYS good. I think my daughter would eat here every meal if we let her. Everything is fresh and tastes good. Selections for the vegan and the carnivore.

Cafe Rio used to be our favorite, they were awesome. Then they moved. Every time we order they mess up. The service is slow, the staff does not seem to know what they are doing anymore. They made our tacos different than they used to, the lettuce is cut much larger, and they can't seem to get our To Go... More
