I'm not sure if this restaurant is under new management, but it is not what it used to be. It used to be one of the most organized, accurate, and friendly places around, but not anymore. They were out of corn tortillas, but didn't mention...More

The fact that I love to eat at Cafe Rio is superceded by the fact that the line is never-ending, no matter when you go there! That’s the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. One night I decided to order online and when I...More

We have eaten here several times on our trips to Salt Lake. It is clean, efficient and a great place to get a quick meal. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are large. Usually we take home left overs for the next day.

4 of us had Pork, Chicken and Beef. All were great. Just wish those employees would smile sometimes. Maybe they need to eat some of their own great food and they would have reason to smile.

They have moved locations just a few blocks away (6973 S. 1300 E.). Grabbed lunch to go. As usual at lunch time there was a line, but they got people through quickly. My pork burrito was delicious. The gal at the register wasn't helpful with...More

We stopped it for lunch and got salads and a burrito. I had the salmon burrito which lacked flavor. The salad seemed okay. The tortilla was pretty good. The portion wasn't bad, but definitely was not that Hardy. They had an awesome military discount which...More

I've been to Cafe Rio at least 50+ times in my life and this location at least a dozen. This particular location is the worst. They give the smallest portions of others I've been to. The food didn't taste fresh this time either. They were...More
