– Mexican Grill –

About Us

The year was 1997. The place, a little town in southern Utah called St. George. A lovely couple named Steve and Patricia Stanley started a restaurant called Cafe Rio Mexican Grill. Cafe Rio served authentic dishes derived from inspired recipes and traditional cooking of Northern Mexico’s Rio Grande region, Southern Texas, and New Mexico. Central to every bite was the belief that every ingredient must be fresh and made fresh to order. And you know what? People loved it. They couldn’t get enough of it. So much so, that one restaurant became six. In 2004, these six little restaurants caught the attention of a fine gentleman named Bob Nilsen. He purchased Cafe Rio from the Stanleys with the idea of spreading the love of  making this fresh Mexican food to everyone in and around Utah and beyond. He made sure to keep the mantra of “fresh food, made fresh” at the very core of the brand. No freezers. No microwaves. Nothing premade. Our staff begins each day, bright and early, hand-squeezing limes, hand-scooping avocados, simmering sauces and preparing desserts. The crowds that line up at our over 125 Cafe Rio locations today, aren’t the only ones to take notice. We’ve won over 100 awards, from the Best of City Search and the Oxnard Salsa Festival to the Inc. 500 and the Alfred P. Sloan Award. And you know what else? We’re just getting started.

The Highest Quality

It’s more than a declaration of deliciousness, it’s our promise.


Tortillas made fresh before your eyes. Seeing is believing.

every darn tortilla Hand-Rolled To Perfection

The first thing you see when you start your order at Cafe Rio is our tortilla makers rolling freshly made dough and placing it on the comal. An essential tool in traditional Mexican cuisine for over five hundred years, the comal is what gives our tortillas their rich, deep and nutty flavor. And no, we can’t make one for you as big as a blanket to snuggle in.

Farm To Table

Each day at Cafe Rio begins with a delivery of fresh fruits and vegetables, right from the farm. We hand-squeeze over a thousand limes, we hand-scoop over a thousand avocados. We cook or grill all of our proteins and meats on site, every day, and prepare all our sauces, salsas and desserts fresh daily.

drink bar World Famous Bebidas

We’re almost as famous for our housemade drinks as we are our freshmade food (almost). Try our delicious horchata or our fresh-squeezed mint limeade.

Fruit from the farm tastes best

Yep, real fruit. We’re not into faking it. Our guests know and deserve the best, and you can’t fake fresh.


Go ahead, live a little with this traditional Mexican drink made by soaking rice and cinnamon together for 24 hours and then adding milk. Mmmmm, creamy.

Strawberry Lemonade

A one-two sugar-free punch of fresh strawberries, hand-squeezed lemons, and Stevia (100% natural sugar-free sweetener). We’ll bet you a free refill you won’t be able to resist a free refill.

Southwest Limeade

A traditional Mexican drink made from crushed Jamaican hibiscus flowers that are soaked in juice from dozens of hand-squeezed limes. It’s an acquired taste that takes all of .0001 seconds to acquire.

Mint Limeade

What happens when you combine fresh-squeezed limes and hand-pressed mint? Something indescribable. You’ll just have to try it, and you definitely won’t regret it!

no freezers or microwaves Why We Taste So Much Better

When your food is freshmade everyday, you simply don’t need ‘em. Freezers mean frozen, microwaves mean reheating. No way José.
