Took the family to Café Rio with friends from California. It was nearly 7pm on a Friday and the place was full, Nice service, large plates of food. Nobody went home hungry. All home made food with fresh flour tortilla's. Not overly fancy but the food was great.

We ate here based upon reviews. First of all, the location had changed from the information on Tripadvisor. On the plus side, the food was good. But as first time visitors, we weren't so familiar with the place, and it's a cafeteria style restaurant, and the servers seem to trying to get people through as fast as possible. So when... More

We went to Cafe Rio one night for dinner - not impressed. We usually get Chipolte which we liked. I had a bowl with chicken, but it was very bland. My husband had pork enchiladas and he said they were too sweet.

The food is fast and fabulous. I miss the food as we live an 1 1/4 from the nearest restaurant to our home. Please encourage them to bring Café Rio to San Diego, CA.

First time we tried this place… Very crowded, very noisy and a little hectic. But the food was good and I am looking forward to going back again to try some other items on the menu. We went to dinner time so maybe I'll try a different time and maybe it won't be quite so noisy.

Cafe Rio has been one of our family's favorites now for years. We know that we can always get a good value for the money with fresh burritos, salads, tacos and soup. Both the burritos and salads are large enough to split between two people. I especially love the chicken tortilla soup on a cold day. . . it's just... More

The food was ok, but not flavored. We went down a line, placed an order, and the staff was so rushed, and busy joking around with each other I felt that I didn't get much for what I was spending.The kitchen area, which is visible needs to be kept clean! Just saying!

Cafe Rio started in St George and has grown to other towns and states over the years but has managed to retain its charm. This modern tex-mex restaurant is a town favorite and for good reason. The food is really good: scratch-made tortillas, grilled meats and tasty sauces. Its addictive! A must on your list if you are from out... More

We really love Café Rio. It gives great food and a daily special (Mon-Sat). We ate the shrimp taco special and it was great. We also get a drink with it. We had the Mint Limeade which was delicious. Very nice place to eat.

We have just eaten in this restaurant. You order and staff prepare the food in front of you. We don't speak very good English so we don't what we have ordered exactly ma everything was very good tortilla homemade and fresh veggies. Less than 20 dollars for one burrito one enchilada and two sodas.
