What Happened???? – What happened to Pistol Pete's? Last I checked they were closed. The sign on the door said that they would reopen begining of January 09. It's the end of Feb now and they are still not open. What gives? I really miss the fish tacos.
WOW and WOW again! – Our friends took us to this restaurant over the weekend and I have never tasted anything so spectacular in my life. I was a long time Cafe Rio fan, but never again. The food was served fast, and hot! And was delicious. I had their chimichunga with burro sauce and lettuce and tomatoes on the side. The portion was enormous and I feel I got what I paid for and more. The service was friendly and the man and the register very funny! He even thanked us as we left (very sincerely) which I thought was wonderful and very personable. Such a nice relaxing place to eat. I didn't feel rushed to eat, even though the place was full. I also didn't feel overrun by other guests, the booth we sat in had a high back so I felt very intimate with my other guests. There were tv's on, but they were not blaring sound, something I despise at restaurants. I am sad that a location isn't in Utah County - PLEASE COME DOWN HERE SOON! I agree with another reviewer in that Pistol Pete's should take the place of the Cafe Rio's, it does need to be a household name!!! Thank you for your tasty food and wonderful restaurant, we had a wonderful time and plan to eat there every time we are in the Salt Lake Valley!
our favorite restaurant – my husband and i eat here at least twice a month. we used to live really close and would eat there once a week and now although we live 30 minutes away, we still eat here every chance we get. the burros are amazing and reasonably priced...it is so reasonably priced and we have never had anything but the best service there...even when we call to get take-out and we are less than 10 minutes away, they always have our food ready on our arrival. we also love the fact that they reward us for coming often...unlike other incentive cards where you have to get 15 or more stamps before you get a free meal, this smaller number of stamps(i think it is eight) allows them to be filled up with stamps often and redeemed for free meals. everyone i have ever introduced this restaurant to(friends, coworkers, family) not only love it, but frequent it often.
Saddle up Cafe Rio!! This is Pete's Town!!!!! – I've been going to Pistol Pete's since it opened, and I love it. The food is so very tasty (love those chicken nachos with the puja salsa) and even when busy there is virtually no wait. Fast, delicious food at a fair price. The only problem at this point is that there is only one location. I used to live three blocks away, but now I have to drive 35 minutes to satisfy my Pete's fix (though it is definitely worth it). If it was up to me all of the Cafe Rio locations would be replaced with a Pistol Pete's, because with food like this, they deserve to be the talk of the town.
Editorial Review – Casual and inexpensive joint doles out traditional Mexican dishes such as burritos, enchiladas and tacos.
Freaking Awesome! – I wasn' t sure what to expect with "Bistro" in the name then walking through a standard line to order, but WOW! The food was awesome and the people friendly. I'm going back and I'm taking more people with me!
Nice Mexican Surprise – This restaurant is hard to spot but when you find it you'll never forget where it is again. When I first went there I really wasn't expecting much but I was astonished by the size of the portions. I got the fajitas and I can eat alot but I couldn't even finish half of the meal. Another thing too is that they give you plenty of tortillas, other places only give you three or so. The service is fast and friendly. The owner is there quite a bit and he wants to make sure your experience is wonderful. I'm recommending this place to all my friends.
Awesome fish tacos – My favorite thing here is the fish taco. They have a different spin on the usual fish taco. Very spicy and very delicious!
I COULD EAT HERE EVERY DAY!!! – Never have I had such miraculous food! I really could eat here every day! The portions are COLOSSAL!! The fish taco is one of my all time favorites, DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE FISH.....my sister absolutely despises fish in all forms, but orders this almost every time we go. The service is "blazingly" fast, the hot-fresh food comes out before you have a chance to sit down, that's how fast they are! And those HOMEMADE tortillas, ooh boy, ooh boy! Nothing like them in the world. I also will shout from the mountain tops how incredibly delicious and savory the AL PASTOR (marinated pork - sweet) is on those NOGALES TACOS and SALADS. Shame on you if you haven't discovered PISTOL PETE'S, this restaurant is truly a "where have you been all my life" establishment!!
Amazing food – I think pistol petes has the best mexican food I've ever tasted, and I eat there atleast 4 times a week. The fish taco and the nagoles enchiladas are among my favorite. Mexican food I've eaten in the past has had somewhat of a bland taste to it, but this really doesn't at all. I highly recommend it!
