We ate there two days in a row when we were visiting family in Surprise. Both meals were fantastic. Probably the best Mexican food I've ever had and FOR SURE the best guacamole. A total gem.

For you new people checking this restaurant. You won't be sorry if you like Mexican food. First off, I can only report on the dinners. AND, for you lunch folks (if they do serve lunch) I'm sure it will be as great as the dinners. The hostesses are cordial, and greet you as you enter. There could be some waiting... More

6 of us went to dinner for a repeat visit to Rio Mirage. They have a very nice menu containing some extremely good Mexican food. This is true Mexican, not a spruced up Taco Bell.

We were delighted with our meal tonight. The Ensalada Tacos were very good. They were served on a plate with rice, beans, salad and sauce. The tacos were corn, which are ok, but next time I would ask for a flour one. I personally don't care for the corn taco because it tends to fall apart too easily. The chicken... More

Mexican food restaurant that has a good selection to choose from. They also have a small bar that you may sit at while you wait for a table or just have a drink. Busy every time I have been there and parking is extremely minimal, almost like pulling in to a 7-11 store. The restaurant is festively decorated, has a... More

Best margaritas in town by far in small, medium, and large sizes. Food is excellent and salsa is very good. I usually get the shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada combo. Chicken quesadilla is fantastic with sour cream and guacamole.
