Every time I come in to town they get confused with someone else that has the same name. I have to talk to the police before I can even eat. I will not be coming back.

Mexican resturant that has daily specials. You can see your tostado being prepared before your eyes. They handle a large crowd so everything is freshly made. It was Wednesday so I ordered the Tostado special which filled the tin with its ingredients. They have multiple types of drinks that you can enhance with flavored syrups such as Vanilla and Raspberry.... More

Purchased two sweet pork barbacoa salads on two separate trips while on vacation to this location and my wife went a third time to the Layton location. Their big enough as a meal to be shared and still get full including the burritos I have had on separate trips. They do offer whole wheat tortillas also. There are menus placed... More

For the second time- we ordered on-line and the order was not even started when we went to pick-up. I had to wait another 15 mins. for the food to be prepared after I arrived. The food is good and the portions are large. But- it's just as fast to go into the restaurant and order through the line.

The food is very Mexican and good tasting. You order and "build" your meal from choices of food and fillings assembly line style. It is plentiful and no one should go away hungry. They do not provide table service as you "wait" on yourself. The staff is having a fun time and sing short songs when certain items are ordered.... More

Housemade tortillas, great vegetarian options, great value. Plenty of seating options in an informal dining area. The service was great and everything extra fresh as is stated in their mission on their website. Great food was becoming our favourite thing about Utah. This had been recommended to us through a blog on places to dine in and around Salt Lake... More

Their housemade tortillas are addiciting! Every dish I've ordered has been very good. Being a somewhat picky eater, I really enjoy that I can pick exactly the things I want. Black beans, chicken and some guac and I'm good. The staff is always nice and so helpful. We go about once a week.

We came into Cafe Rio on a Saturday afternoon at 4:45pm there were just a few customers sitting at tables. When we walked in the place it was so dirty with lots of food on the floor and on the tables. We could not find a clean table but not one person was in line for food. I did find... More

I travel through this area quite a bit on business. This was the first Cafe Rio I ever went to. Being from the Midwest, I thought this was a SLC area chain - very surprised to find them in Phoenix as well. As for this location, when I was here back in 2013, you were not able to get a... More
