In Riverside on Hole Ave. half-way between Hunington Beach and Redlands is an authentic treasure not to be missed. Mouthwatering mesquite smoke waft through the parking lot a foreshadowing of what is to come. We had perfect Carnitas, fresh-made tortillas and a Enchilada/Tamale combo with "Christmas Sauce" a mix of red and green sauces and it was delicous. They were... More

The food and service at this restaurant was awesome! We were visiting family there during the holidays and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The tortillas are freshly made (there's a machine in the middle of the room) and the food is plentiful! I had a beef burrito that could have been shared with another person and my husband had the...

We love this restaurant .The prices are very reasonable. The food is always hot and fresh. You can smell the mesquite grill from outside. Which makes your mouth water. The shrimp and steak fajitas are wonderful. They have giant chili renos and shrimp enchiladas, carne asada that melts in your mouth. You can have all the hot flour tortillas you... More

Lots of positive things to say about Anchos. We were having difficulty finding a place that was open Christmas Eve. They said that if we called early in the day, they would put us on a list and true to their word, we got a table right when we arrived. Had not been for over 10 years and our friends... More

More than happy with the food and service was excellent. Had shrimp and steak fajitas and the ribs and steak fajitas, ribs weren't smothered in sauce they put it on the side excellent choice. Shrimp was tender almost like lobster with a cilantro butter YUM. We were not impressed with the Cadillac margaritas, So we ordered a regular margarita with... More

Fantastic SW meal! We particularly loved the homemade tortillas served with butter -- interesting twist, and certainly a delicious one. Chicken dishes were also noteworthy -- juicy, flavorful and cooked just right. We didn't get to try the retried beans -- didn't know you have to ask for them. The standard pinto beans weren't all that special. We'll definitely go... More

We have been going here for 25 years. When we lived in Riverside we made this into a Friday night family dinner experience and have watched many of the staff grow up in the place as they did with my daughter. We moved away 8 years ago and we still make time to visit them when we are visiting family... More

You'll be disappointed if you come here expecting traditional Mexican food because it's not, it's Southwest style. Also this place is usually packed on Friday & Saturday nights so be prepared for a wait, although they're pretty good about getting people seated promptly.They have fantastic flour tortillas made fresh (Don't ask for corn tortillas because they don't serve them). The... More

This little jewel on Hole Street in the Riverside area has the best Southwest style food and even better margaritias. My favorites are the charcoaled salsa and handmade tortillas along with the seafood enchilada. Their side rice that comes with meals is also great - - - it has peppers and chicken.
