If you haven't been to Cafe Rio you are missing out. Everything I have ever ordered here is wonderful. A couple favorite are the sweet pork burrito and the steak tacos. My kids love the food as well. They love watching them make everything fresh right in front of you.

I don't understand the hype this place gets here in Utah. There are hole in the wall places that serve better Mexican than Cafe Rio. It's bland at best unless you get it smothered with cheese and enchilada sauce. Pretty much and over priced taco bell.

Cafe Rio is always tasty. Can't think of a bad food experience, but there are other less pricey choices in this fast-casual space. If it weren't UT, they would not survive alone in the Mexi-food space.

This is my favorite place to eat out when I can't decide where else to go. The food is always good and fresh. One busy time they encouraged me to order at the "to go" register because it was faster. It was NOT. The people who went through the line were finished and eating their food before my order was... More

Who doesn't love Cafe Rio? I can't stay away even though it means dealing with grumpy line cooks. I miss the days of 10 years ago when the workers were happy and fun. These grumpsters look like they hate you for ordering.

Excellent quality. The steak is seasoned just right. The smothered burritos are delightful. Tell them you want the burrito in the picture or you'll get its little brother.

Cafe Rio is a great place to get a filling, fresh meal on a budget. Their burritos are huge, and you get to pick and choose what type of beans, meat and ingredients ts they put in your burrito. My favorite is the fire grilled steak burrito, enchilada style (smothered with cheese and sent through a conveyor oven to melt... More

As usual the food was great but this location had really declined. The tile on the floor was chipped the wood railing, tables and chairs were damaged. The walls had some damage and the pedestals holding the straps that guide you to the order counter were broken and tied up with knots. I'll choose a different cafe rio next time.... More

If you ever visit Utah this place is a must! Their ingredients are fresh, tortillas are made in front of you. Highly suggest the beef or grilled chicken burrito. Kids eat free quesadillas. BEST ITEM IN THE MENU IS THE CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP!
