Great Lunch menu with great portions for a really great price! Lots of selections too! Friendly and knowledgable staff. Wonderful atmosphere with Mexican music in the background and old family pics all throughout the restaurant.

Good food at a good price. They've got one of the most unusual and one of the best veggie quesadillas I've ever eaten!

One of the best Mexican dinners we've had in a long time. The tacos were outstanding. The service was excellent with lots of specials. Great choice of Mexican draft beers.

The food is awesome. You have to try the Alton Taco. I have never had bad food by them. The only problem is takeout is pricey, but dine in is cheap

This is not just any mexican restaurant, here, you are always treated as friends and if you aren't happy with something they will bend over backwards to make it right. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is wonderful too. Authentic mexican dishes served here are the best I've ever tasted.

Food quality is very consistent here. I get the arroz con pollo when I come. The chips are warm but their salsa could be a little less runny. They bring you large glasses so you don't have to get and wait for refills. The whit cheese dip is good but could be a little spicier.

Instead they have a menu of 8 items, one of which is a plate of rice, refried beans and salad. The other eight include tacos, burritos, enchiladas and so on. You can... More

My wife and I travel and appreciate good Mexican food and that is what you will get at Riviera. You do have another choice in town for Mexican so if you want Americanized, bland, run of the mill Mexican go to the other choice. If you want interesting, tasty, and authentic come to Riviera. The pork Nachos are amazing. The... More

good food for the price, try the 4 different enchiladas, got alot of food, only thing is they dont give you refried bean with the mexican rice which was odd, all other mexican restaurants always give you beans. just rice. had to bring some home.
