    All the tea machines were cleaned and emptied by 9:20 pm. The waiter was rude. Almost mad that I came in 40 mins before closing. I think it's just society now

    The food was pretty good when it is fresh. It was really expensive for only two people ($56 in the 1st visit, $45. for the second try). They have a cafeteria system going, so it's not a great place for a relaxing or romantic dinner. The very second we stepped up to order it felt so intense and rushed as if there was a massive line behind us (we were the only ones in line and the place was almost empty). It was like being in the Army again. We went twice just in case we missed something in the rush and didn't know how to order right. Nope, that is really how much it costs for some tacos & nachos.

    As a person from Texas used to great and diverse Mexican and Tex-Mex food, my expectations for this Utah chain were pretty low, but they were quickly exceeded. I got a burrito and was surprised when they offered it smothered on top with cheese and sauce, melted through a toaster oven, with the cold ingredients on the side afterwards. This gave it such an elevated taste, more like what I would get at a sit-down Mexican restaurant, but with the price and convenience of fast food. Chipotle, Illegal Pete's, and Qdoba need to step up their game to compete with their burritos in my mind! The adobo chicken, salsa, tortilla, and other ingredients I got were well-seasoned and fresh tasting and the atmosphere was pleasant, colorful, and casual- it kind of reminded me of Taco Cabana. Their drinks also look really good, and it sounds like they rotate seasonally, with housemade horchata, lemonades, and teas. The options of food are more broad than their competitors with stellar deals on daily specials. I look forward to trying some of their other stuff.

    I don't know about other people, but you guys... their salad is amazing...!!! It was super filling. It came in a fresh tortilla with well seasoned rice and beans along with fresh veggies, crispy tortillas chips and how can I forget the yummy dressings. Loved it...!! I am a vegetarian, so I didn't have a lot of options, which is why I decided to give their salad a try and I am in love....!! Coming from a person who hates salad lol. I loved their mint limeade as well. Super refreshing. I AM A FAN...!! Thank you, guys.

    Cafe Rio was 'What's for Lunch?' on Sunday after church. The order line works like a Subway, but the food is much better. It moves along. Tortillas are fresh made as you watch, the veggies are fresh daily and the food is served as it would be along the river which is the namesake. Expect to pay more for this. Dinner for 7 was over $60. The salad was served in a fresh tortilla with a choice of entree meat, and a dressing choice. Rice and beans and steak, as the meat, are upgrades. The dining room is large and decorated with charming tin ware lighting and other Mexican style furnishings. Cafe Rio is located in a strip mall and the parking is shared. The restrooms are clean and stocked.
