In1997, A couple named Steve and Patricia Stanley started a restaurant called Cafe Rio Mexican Grill in St. George Utah. Cafe Rio served authentic dishes derived from inspired recipes and traditional cooking of Northern Mexico’s Rio Grande region, Southern Texas, and New Mexico. one restaurant became six. In 2004, these 6 little restaurants caught the attention of 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. Thier staff still begins each day, bright and early, hand-squeezing limes, hand-scooping avocados, chopping fresh vegetables, simmering sauces, and preparing the chef-inspired recipes our fans have come to love.
