St. George is where Cafe Rio began, and while the location in town is new, the tradition of savory fresh Mexican food prevails. We love the sweet barbacoa for either a salad, burrito, taco, or amazing quesadilla. Be sure to choose the "medium" enchilada sauce....More

Cafe Rio is delicious! Their pork is so good! My favorite things to order are the salad (any meat) with the cilantro ranch, the burritos, and the horchata as a drink. The portion sizes are huge!

While in a location that is NOT the picture shown, the St George location is the first of the chain. I can always count on a good and freshly prepared meal.

On a tip we located this restaurant. It is the go-through-the-line-pick-your-ingredients place.But, just but, there is a woman at the beginning making the flour tortillas from scratch. Now that is huge, elevating the tacos and burritos to another level. Standard fare, standard type with fresh...More
