This was our first and last time eating at this chain. Food was cold. Salsa looked brown. My friend and I did not feel very good after eating here.

Usually a nice quick option if you're in the mood for fresh mex that won't take long. Counter / Line ordering where they build to order. Salads, burritos, meat & non-meat options.

This has got to be the most horrible Cafe Rio location I have ever eaten at. I love Cafe Rio but this one was disgusting. From entering, to looking in the kitchen, to going into the bathroom, it was filthy. Trash everywhere, not a single...More

We were driving through town and realized there is a Cafe Rio in Cedar City. Great place to get some good tacos that are hearty, fresh and enjoyable. So that's just what we did. We were able to eat outside since it was a nice,...More
