We just moved to CdA from Vegas and we were very happy to find a Cafe Rio in our new town. Their restaurants in Vegas are always packed as they deserve to be and the restaurant in CdA met the same high standards. Hope It takes off here. Quality and value are great. Love the daily specials!

The food here is excellent! I know it's a chain, but the food is always hot and fresh. The service was again, just O.K. The employees are knowledgeable, just not overly friendly. It wasn't very busy when we were there, so we were helped fairly quickly. The restaurant was fairly clean, but there were tables that were dirty and needed... More

Given this is a chain it's descent food. Not top notch as you create the add on's to your own dish. So it's as good as your make it. It's consistently descent for a quick bite to eat.

Be prepared, food is made to order so the line may move slower than a typical take out. I absolutely love their chili beef tacos. Really delicious. I also love cilantro on my tacos which they have. HOWEVER, someone should clue them in that the tops can be easily chopped off the stems so you don't have much waste. The... More

My cousin took us to Cafe Rio ( we are from Virginia City, Nevada ) and it is great little cafe! My daughter had a steak quesadilla which was large, full of steak and delicious. My cousin and I couldn't decide between the pork tacos and the special of the day, salmon tacos, so we ordered both and each had... More

We stopped in on a Tuesday night for some tacos. They have a Tuesday special that we found very reasonable. I highly recommend the pork tacos, much more flavor than the beef or pollo. The staff was very friendly and great at explaining the process for first time visitors.

This is very good fast food. The chili beef taco is outstanding! Different than Chipotle but similar concept and also really good. Only negative is they need to cut the stems off their cilantro. The nicest thing for me is that they have a great selection of sugar free & caffeine free drinks. With all the controversy about the calories... More

Cafe Rio catered for my and my husband's wedding in April 2016 for about 250 people. We were absolutely thrilled with Cafe Rio's service, punctuality, professionalism, delivery (we were married up in Sandpoint), and quality of food. Their prices were about as low as we could find, but the quality was not compromised. Our guests were delighted as well with... More
