This restaurant has great margaritas and food, but our evening was spoiled by the fact that dogs are allowed to join the outdoor eaters, and people somehow think it is fine to bring their dogs to dinner. If we wanted to eat with dogs, we would take our food to the pet store and eat there. Tip to management: get... More

I violated the rule of "never eat anything bigger than your head" at Mexican Riviera. The special burrito is humungous, but so good that it disappeared from my plate. The other six folks at our table seemed similarly happy with their meals, but we were so busy eating that there wasn't much talking. Every table in the place was filled,... More

We have been going to the Mexican Rivera Restaurant for about 10 years - they get it right! Our favorite is the Carnitas tostados - so fresh and yummy! They have a variety of wonderful dishes on their extensive menu. Their salsa is so tasty with fresh fried corn torillas, Great thing is they open at 8:00 AM for you... More

For me, I've had the tacos and tacquitos and will try other items on the menu to find my favorite (I would prefer if the hard tacos didn't have a red sauce poured over the shell). The tortilla chips are a nice... More

This wonderful Mexican restaurant consistently gets it right.....from the delicious food, chips, salsa to the staff. We have been eating there for about 10 years and NEVER have had a bad meal or any type of disappointment. Our favorite dish is the Carnitas Tostada. Sometimes we enjoy the combo cup of soup and mini Carnitas Tostada - yummmmm! We have... More
