So the big difference between Cafe Rio, Barbacoa, and Costa Vida (all within a block of each other in Draper) is sugar. Cafe Rio goes heavy with it in their meat recipes where Costa Vida and Barbacoa are more about spicy heat. I like the...More

We recently had our first visit to Cafe Rio, why did we wait so long? Our kids are little and love the “free” kids cheese quesadilla. It’s hard to find anything free these days. We have tried almost everything on the menu and have been...More

Had the opportunity to dine here while on business. The restaurant was very crowded for dinner. Diverse menu is available, service is cafeteria style with a tray. Food was very good, cost was reasonable. Restaurant was clean. I would return.
