The food is very good and filling too. The margaritas are perfect. This restaurant is on the pricey side however the ambience makes up for it. Come hungry!

This is a great restaurant. The food is fantastic... ricissimo (I think that's the word in Spanish) The last time we were there, we were the only Anglos in our area... which speaks to the quality and authenticity of the menu.

Being that my husband is Hispanic, we thought we would give this restaurant a try. But to our Surprise, the food was yucky. It was very generic, almost tasted like "Chinese" food. We love Chinese, but we had a hankering for Hispanic? Servers looked unhappy, and they were slow. we were unhappy with them and won't be back. :(

My husband and I recently ate at Rio Mirage while on a trip to Arizona. If I were grading on the margaritas alone, I would give it a five. The service was a solid four, very good but not exceptional. The food quality and presentation was a three at best. The food seemed very poured from a can and heat... More
