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.

I have eaten at locations in a Draper,Vernal,Salt lake City,etc. St.George was extra memorable due to company. Always a fun meal,with flavor that burst,drink choices are a real highlight. The fresh,made in front of you tortillas is a special feature. GO!!! You won't be sorry.

There is almost always a line at Cafe Rio. The reason is consistently excellent Mexican food at a fair price.

This is a Mexican restaurant with a different twist. It's set up cafeteria style. You choose your menu, then as you go down the line, you tell them what you specifically want on your enchilada (or whatever you purchased). It's then made up for you while you stand there and watch. The staff all look like they're having a great... More

We were in St George Utah on part of our vacation and was in the mood for Mexican food. We plugged Mexican food into the GPS and it was the closest to us, so we drove by and it was crowded and if a restaurant is crowded it must be good. So we went in. They had a special of... More
