Ok. First of all this is fast food. Don't expect a waiter or waitress to take your order and have quiet private dining. So if you are ok with crowds, waiting in line to order your food and noise in the dining area you will be just fine. The food is great! Definitely one of my favorite "Utah" Mexican places.... More

Arrived about an hour before closing and received prompt service. Ordered their marinated sweet shredded pork burrito. Really enjoyed the flavor and fresh ingredients.

Café Rio is Old Faithful for us because it is smashing every time, the service is incredibly fast, and everything is fresh including the tortillas! The salmon tacos are tasty and very filling but my favorite is the vegetarian salad. I also like the burritos!

Setting is very casual and family friendly. Large portions for entrees; could easily be split unless you're super hungry. Kids get a free cheese quesadilla! Food tastes great. Love their pica de gala.

A Utah hit! Everyone loves this place. My favorite is a shredded beef salad with creamy Cilantro dressing. The sweet pork is a local favorite. Fast and reliable

I forgot how good this place is! Sadly, this place tends to be the last place on my list to go for a quick lunch because the parking lot is often full and I also expect a long line inside. That said, they know how to move a line! Today, I got the pork salad with the creamy house dressing--sooo... More
