Cafe Rio Mexican Grill is the best Mexican food on the planet, we kid you not. A fast casual restaurant chain that is slowly taking over the country! We've won over 60 awards and we were most recently ranked the number one Quick Serve Mexican Restaurant in the Nation, for the third year in a row! What makes us different? For starters, every one of our meals is made right in front of our customers eyes, nothing is prepackaged or frozen, everything is made from scratch every day. It takes hard work and mad skills to get it done the Cafe Rio Way, but we absolutely love it, have a great time doing it, and when it's all said and done, go home having worked hand in hand with a great team to make a real difference. We opened our first location in 1997 in St George, Utah and now have over 90 locations in 11 States. We are serious about creating future leaders, culinary all stars and making the world a tastier planet.
