Rio Mirage is a great local Mexican restaurant with great service! A great selection of margaritas ranging from a pretty good house margarita to a whole slew of high end margaritas that are also available in plenty of fruit flavors and... house margaritas are only one dollar on Wednesdays! The chips are hot and the salsa is fresh and delicious.... More

Have been here three times paet few weeks. Very good chicken fahitas - large enough portion to share with addition of extra tortillas. Good variety of higher end margaritas. Nice decor and ambiance. Don' think there is a better Mexican restaurant in the area.

The food is fresh and staff is very friendly. Inside is very much like a Mexican restaurant in Mexico. Lots of room if you have a large group of people.

We have eaten there a number of times and have always been satisfied. Waiters are nice and willing to help with what ever you request. They have vegetarian rice but, not vegetarian refried beans however, you can get black beans in its place.

I don't know how this place survives, I found the food to be pretty bad, and additionally, overpriced. There are many much better Mexican restaurants around. Even some of the local chains are better.

Been there a couple of times and I must say the food was very good. The only down side is there is not enough parking which forces you to head to the nearby neighborhood which is less than desirable. If you go try to go at off times, not regular dinner times, and avoid the brunch on Sunday.
