One of my favorite spots to eat is Cafe Rio. I was surprised to see one in Vernal, Ut. It was so great, it was like being home again, I was so happy. Same decor, same wonderful menu, same food made from scratch. yum!!

I'm a big fan of the fast, delicious menu, but was so pleased with the friendly staff. We had a great time and they even indulged our kiddos with extra toppings.

I would not eat there ever again. Cold atmosphere. Staff seemed bored. Didn't use corn tortillas. The meat was not flavorful. The price was ok but again the two tacos I had were a disappointment.

We eat here every time we come to Vernal.we love the food and the staff is very friendly. This time though the place was a mess. All the tables and chairs were caked with food and garbage and the floors were disgusting.
