Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A brief stop. Long lines but worth the wait. Efficient and well run staff. Enjoyed the chicken tacos with extra guacamole.. Lots of flavor.

I hate to admit didnt know it was a fast food joint when we saw it, and drove in hoping for a margarita and a good dinner, well did not get the margarita but did get some good fast Mexican food and a fantastic lime aid.

I am a repeat customer to this place. So much that the employees just know what I want. The food here is super. The Clerk Ty always goes the extra mile to make sure my wife and I have a great meal.

Huge portions and great prices! Really enjoyed the chicken burrito. My daughter had the chicken nachos and it was so much food. Great service and clean bathroom too.

We stopped at a few Cafe Rio's and this one is great, friendly staff, good food and great location. If you're looking for a quick bit to eat, this is the place.

Hot day. Traveling with a 6-month old pup in a hot car. Arrived early at 11 a.m. No other customers present. Asked son to sit with leashed puppy at outdoor patio table while I got food ordered. Staff IMMEDIATELY told him no dogs were allowed and that he was to return the dog to the hot car. I had not even received the order yet. When I got it, the food was okay, but the horchata was not mixed right. Not enough sweetener, leaving it tasting like plain rice milk. Staff was unfriendly and given no other option to keep a pet from overheating in the vehicle, I find the pet policy absurd - especially since we were not even in the enclosed patio area - we were outside that perimeter. We picked the furthest possible patio table and no other patrons were there. Dog was leashed. They won't get my business again.

Fairly expensive but you get huge amounts of food which you can share with your husband or a friend. The best deal is to go on Tuesday's since you can get a large meal like a salad or a giant burrito for $5.50. It's well worth it.

Every Tuesday is only five dollars! My family and I go here at least once a month. This is one of my favorite restaurants in grand junction, I love the food, shredded chicken salad, or the green chili chicken enchiladas. My boyfriend is all about the steak! They also have free kids quesadillas, my daughters favorite. The horchata is absolutely one of my favorite drinks there, you must try! One the plus side the staff is amazing, very welcoming, fast, and, friendly.

Cafe Rio is one of the lesser known fresh made southwestern style fast restaurants. My salad / bowl exceeded my expectations. Good quality, fresh produce, nice flavors. Tortillas made fresh as you watch. We must have been there right after a rush as seating areas could have used some tidying up.

This is another version of the quickly assembled Mexican fast food places. For my taste, it didn't bring anything special in the foods at all. The drinks were fun - freshly made limeades and a beverage bar so you could flavor it up. I don't like that all of the prices shown on the menu are for entrees including rice and beans - that makes a much more expensive meal. I would often rather just have a taco or whatever. They will do that, but you have to ask since the menu makes no mention of it. And - they put everything in an aluminium foil container - so your entree gets soggy from the sides. We had steak tacos. I tasted the steak and it was good. But somehow - the assembled taco didn't taste good to me at all. Like the cheese clashed with the meat (I know, that doesn't sound possible - but it was). I probably would not come back - but this might be more to your taste than mine. It certainly is attractive inside. And there are two outside patios - one glassed in and one out in the open.

We ordered two salads through the restaurant's web site, and I then dropped by to pick up. The order did not show up on the cashier's order screen, so she immediately input and expedited the order. She was very apologetic and helpful, and I had my salads in no time. Food quality and taste were great!
