We ate at Cafe Rio... Stamp of Approval

So we have our favorites that we always go to whenever in town like Thai Spice, for the best Thai food in the universe!

And Porcupine grill and bar, good food, good beers, and easy ambiance.

But we tried a new restaurant at the recommendation of my best friend's mom who lives there.  It's called Cafe Rio and it's a chain.  It's a chain.  It's a cafeteria / fast food style chain.   That alone typically does not hold a lot of appeal. 

Terrible of me to be prejudice when it comes to food coming from big corporate chains but rarely do these type of restaurants ever pan out in terms of overall satisfaction.

When we arrived, it was packed, the line wrapped around a few times and reminded me of a popular ride at Disneyland.   You stand in line and then you order your food from a behind the glass counter person and you tell them all the things you want in your salad, burrito, or taco.   The closest competitor that they have is Chipotle, which is also available here in SLC.

I ordered a fire roasted chicken salad with their legendary creamy tomatillo sauce.  It was super duper tasty.  Quite pleased.  In fact, we ate there again 2 days later for lunch.  It was even tastier than the first time. 

Lacks ambiance, but the food is just terrific.

Try it when you are here, they are all over Salt lake city.  It's not expensive and the portions are very very generous.  You can easily share a salad.
