We have gone here everytime we visit our daughter in Redondo Beach. Great atmosphere, inside or out on patio. Attentive wait staff, great food and drink. Chip and sausa to start out and full menue. You will enjoy, the a short distance to the beach to walk it off.

This is a good, old-fashioned, walk-through-the-kitchen-to-get-to-the-bathroom Mexican-American restaurant. I love that! Big plates, all the standard menu items, a little greasy, great service. My favorite Mexican beers. I'm always happy after eating here, but go with people you want to talk to or a book if you're by yourself because there's nothing to look at.

not a fancy place. It has unique character. The food was really good. Very tasty. My wife ordered the Jr Chicken Burrito. This thing was huge. If that was a Jr, I wonder what the regular one would look like. I would go back again if I was in the neighbourhood.

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

My wife says that the cheese enchiladas are her favorite of any Mexican restaurant she has eaten at. 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

Our family have been customers of this restaurant for about 15 yrs. my husband is Mexican and his mom is a fabulous cook so every time we have Mexican food elsewhere, it has to be as good as moms'. Mexican Riviera has never disappointed. The owners, Miguel & Kathy are always there. Family is usually waiting tables. I love that... More
