Excellent Food, Fast Friendly Service, Fun Environment

It has been a few years since we have been to Ancho's (we moved from the area). The first thing we noticed was that the facility looked as good or even better than when it was built (yes, we were there in the beginning). We had a warm friendly greeting from the same man we remembered when we... read more

We (family of seven) visited last week based upon TA ratings and our memories from living in Riverside twenty years ago. (Don't try to repeat memorable experiences as the possibility of disappointment is high!) Service was outstanding as we were provided an endless supply of chips, salsa and soft drinks and quick re-orders of adult beverages. However, that was the... More

You can't bet the freshly made tortillas and the generous helpings of freshly cooked, flavorful meals. Best Mexican food in the Inland Empire.

Three of us came for a business dinner on a Monday night, looking for good Mexican fare. Anchos came through big time. The dinning room is no frills - almost has a cafeteria feel to it, but the service is great and the food is outstanding. Best steak fajitas ever and the sizzling shrimp are huge and delicious. I highly... More

My wife and I had already eaten my mom's Mexican homecooking and you just can't beat that. I wanted to show her a different flavor where the food wasn't as spicey. I took her to Anchos Southwest grill and it's the best southwest grill I've been to. I can tell if the restaurant will be good based on the salsa... More

Seriously: the. Best. Fajitas. They also serve homemade tortillas, that are fresh, made right in front of you, for no additional charge. The salsa is made fresh, and the chips are fantastic. Everything on the menu is affordable, and fairly priced. They have great service, and the owner is always about, talking to diners, and making sure everyone is happy... More

Anchos has been a favorite in Riverside for long time. The casual atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food, and homemade tortillas make this a great place to gather with friends and family.

Good Tex-mex food. Gets crowded though, long waiting time. Salsa could use some spice. The steak in the fajitas is so good, I eat it alone and then make a veggie taco with the other fajitas fixings :)

Don't know why many people like this place but to me this is just so so for Mex place and I think it is way over price. Fajitas is 20$ per plate and the side dish is so small, one scoop of guacamole, salsa, sour cream ect...on the side. They do have home made tortillas but that is only thing... More

Authentic Mexican food. Flour tortillas made on the premises , served warm with butter- yum! I had lunch with friends and then ordered dinner to go for my family. Their beans are the best- wish I'd ordered more than just went with the 2 dinners as my granddaughter ate them all (she's nearly 3). All 8 of us had something... More
