“Fast, Fresh and Delicious Southwestern Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Enjoyed this restaurant immensely. The food was excellent, great pinto beans, salsa, guacamole, meat and tortillas hot off the grill. Served up by a team of happy servers. Each customer selects what they want on their order which makes everyone happy.

“Best place to eat at SLC airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

If you are at the SLC airport and like Mexican food don't miss Cafe Rio. It is a local favorite here in Utah and although it is an airport location it has their full menu, and is just as good. I have found that the employees at the airport location can be a little slower than other locations but it is worth it. The steak is excellent, I get it in both the burritos and salads. I eat here almost every time I am at SLC during the day.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

It's not the best Mexican (fast food) we've had but it is our top choice around Cottonwood Heights. We've tried everything on the menu. It's better then Chipolte in our opinion.

“Fast and good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Everything is made fresh in front of you. Good quality ingredients. Huge portions. Rest rooms are too small and had to wait in line at lunch to wash hands and food got cold.

“An airport eatery that's worth a trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I had the sweet pork burrito, and it was equal to the best I've had in any Mexican restaurant anywhere.
