Dinner time

Have frequented Rio Mirage in Surprise several times. The food is always great and the service usually is too. The one time it wasn't, management made up for it by comping half our meal

Good, plentiful, homestyle, Mexican food. Nothing fancy here. The chips and salsa were good. The salsa isn't hot or spicy, but it was flavorful and fresh. The chips were thin and crisp. The portions are large. The appetizer order of guacamole was very good and made with real Haas avocado that were perfectly ripe; it was properly salted and didn't... More

From the start, the warm home made tortilla chips & salsa are a winner. Authentic, Mexican food, great margaritas, and cozy atmosphere!

This is by far the best Mexican Food in Surprise! They have Two (2) Locations and both are excellent. The original one off of Grand has a Special Flair to it. This is the one that made them famous!

The restaurant was located in El Mirage on Grand Ave., it was very good. The restaurant in Surprise is mediocre at best. The food is not very tasteful and the prices are high. I would not recommend this restaurant. Many better Mexican food choices in the area

Place was crowded so that was a good sign. Had tortilla soup - large portion and very tasty. Fried had a steak salad which she pronounced as excellent - lots of grilled steak. Only criticism was the very small glass of wine and poor refills on the water. Otherwise worth it.

My husband & I went there this past Sun as it was our 15th Wedding Anniversary & my 17th yr of sobriety. Our waiter was Ruben & he was so busy & so fast. They kept us in chips & salsa which is so good. The food is so delicious! They gave us fried ice cream to split between the... More
