About Cafe Rio

Cafe Rio, also known as Cafe Rio Mexican Grill, is a fast food chain that specializes in Mexican cuisine.  The founders Steve and Tricia Stanley opened the first six Cafe Rio restaurants in 1997 in St. George, Utah.  Seven years later, Bob Nilsen and his team bought them, and expanded them to the 80 locations that exist today.  They operate in 11 US states.  Unlike many fast food restaurants, Cafe Rio prepares food using fresh not pre-made ingredients based off of recipes from the Rio Grande, Southern Texas, and New Mexico.  Menu choices include burritos, quesadillas, tacos, salads, and more!  Want a taste of authentic Mexican food and wonder what time does Cafe Rio close?  Check out the Cafe Rio hours closest to your town.







Cafe Rio Hours

Cafe Rio hours begin in mid-morning and stop about two hours before midnight.  Cafe Rio hours suit you well if you want to stop by for lunch or want a break from cooking dinner.  You can also order online if you prefer to eat their food at home.  The downside to Cafe Rio is that the franchises are in only 11 states, mostly in the western/southwestern regions.  Hopefully, Cafe Rio will carry over to more US states so those in other regions could try it out.  Or if you’re really itching to take advantage of Cafe Rio hours, you could move to one of the states.  If you’re fortunate enough to live in one the states, check what time does Cafe Rio open and what time does Cafe Rio close today!
