I have gone here a few times before and my co-worker wanted somewhere that was quick and good. Cafe Rio is both. I enjoyed having a place that understands food allergies. Food is good and their guacamole is really good!

Having recently relocated to Great Falls, I've been missing the fast casual tex-mex meals at Chipotle. But then I found this gem! Delicious fresh tortillas and wonderfully tasty ingredients. Very reasonable prices. Definitely recommend to anyone needing a quick tex-mex fix!

Was expecting, based on all of the amazing reviews, a wonderful Mexican experience. Don’t get me wrong—the food was good, the restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly. It just seemed a bit overpriced for the amount/quality of food. Kind of a B-grade Qdoba or...More

This place reminds me of a Chipotle, it's honestly the best Mexican food ice had so far in Montana. I had a steak burrito and it was spot on. The cheese and tortilla was my favorite part. I will be back again soon.

Food is good and fresh. Need to spend less time singing and flipping trays when somebody orders the nachos and keep the long line moving. Not the cleanest dining area, but not the worst.

The food was fresh, it was well prepared, and it was not ridiculously expensive. As someone who was traveling, I was glad to have found this laid-back place to eat lunch and to be able to chat it up with some of the locals. Friendly...More
