Usually fantastic. Frequently eat here. Broke my tooth on a rock in the black beans. Spoke with the manager on duty. She saud sorry and hustled off to make more food. I work with beans myself and know they must be carefully sorted. Shame on them. Be more thorough.

Food was hard to order, could not understand English. Food was old and tasted old. Bad customer service. Dirty and tables not clean.

Their sweet pork burritos are the best. They are so huge we always order just one and split it. Food is always fresh and tasty

First and last time visitor. On our way back to Denver from Las Vegas road trip. We decided to stop for a quick coffee, gas and food. Cafe Rio was across the street from our gas station so we decided " without reading any reviews" to grab a quick meal. It was Memorial day and I did serve 20 years... More

We've driven my many times. This was the first time we stopped in. Around lunch time and it was busy... indicative of a good place to eat. Didn't take long to get through the line. Excellent choices for meals. The food wasn't out of this world but did enjoy it. An average mexican style eating place. I plan on going... More

Cafe Rio used to be my go-to fast food. But the last trip was very poor. The place didn't feel clean. Those preparing food were rushed and weren't keeping the prep area clean. They also didn't seem to care about my order and were out of several items including guac! The drink fountain area was a mess and it seemed... More

I really don't care what you put inside of their tortillas, I'll eat it. And their house dressing on top of their barbacoa pork in a salad is almost my idea of a perfect meal. Except for the time we can in right behind a college softball team, the service has been very quick. And even that time, the manager... More

Not my favorite place for burritos, but they are very good. A little pricey compared to other similar places. Service is OK.

Although this restaurant is part of a chain, the food is good, fresh, and served quickly. Tortillas made on the premises, fresh guacamole, tasty meat, and lots of vegetable and topping choices make this a wonderful stopping place near the mall. The drinks are good too-- horchata and agua fresca are refreshing choices!
