I started eating at Cafe Rio Mexican Grill when I first moved to Utah. It's a very popular restaurant here in Utah. When I went vegan I had to learn what's vegan at Cafe Rio. I've listed it all out in this post for you.
Their menu has burritos, salads, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas, tostadas, nachos, tortilla soup, appetizers, desserts, and drinks.
Cafe Rio has a veggie info page on their site that gives some help with what to order.

The following menu items are vegan and dairy free according to their allergen info:

- Flour tortillas (ask for no margarine)
- Wheat tortillas (ask for no margarine)
- Black beans
- Pinto beans
- Tortilla chip strips

Sadly, their cilantro lime rice contains dairy. I'm hoping this changes in the future! Also, they don't have any vegan cheese or sour cream.
These are some vegan meal suggestions you can order:

- Vegetarian tostada with a corn tortilla, pinto beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, salsa fresca, tortilla strips, cilantro, and cilantro lime dressing
Cafe Rio is a fast casual Mexican restaurant. They usually make the food pretty fast, but during busy times it can take a while. They have a lot of locations, especially here in Utah.
