I visit SLC each summer for work and love trying out new restaurants. Cafe Rio didn't disappoint! There was a lot of locals there, but the line moves quickly. I had the fire roasted chicken quesadilla. Cooked to perfection and delicious! I can't wait to...More

If you love pulled pork quesadillas, this is the place to go to! It has been one of my favorite things to order since I was little, now I am almost off to college. 10/10 would recommend going here.
