Split vote on the food

We had a split experience with the food. The tunafish tacos were quite good. The crab cake salad tasted stale or moldy. The server did apologize and offered another salad which was good, but could have done more to correct the mistake.

Wow! So consistently good that I had to review one of my hometown favorites. Everything I have had here, chicken empanadas, quesadilla, crab cakes, and even the margaritas are delicious. Friends and dining companions agree that their food is fantastic as well, every time! Servers always friendly and efficient. One of our go to places when company comes to town

Had crabcake salad and it was simply delicious there were a variety of flavors that meshed well together from the crabcake to the vingerette dressing. Had a slice of cheesecake for dessert and it was absolutely to die for very creamy and sweet!!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning in the future.

I've lived in Riverside twice over the span of three years and have only managed to make it into Mossfire twice, unfortunately. My most recent visit cemented this spot as one of my favorites in the area, especially in Five Points, and I'll definitely be back soon. The menu has changed in the span of those two visits, and as... More

Tacos were off the chain. I can't say enough good things about the food here. The waiter recommended the tuna, ranch burger and calamari tacos and all were awesome. Easily the best seared tuna taco I've ever had (sesame crusted, but with a kick to it). First time having a fried calamari taco, but it was great (big, tender cuts... More

They have an updated menu! Gourmet tacos are really good. We had the steak, the calamari (my favorite) the tuna and the shrimp. I did not care for the shrimp. They called the KaPow but honestly it had no spice and almost seemed like they used prebattered frozen shrimp. In complete contrast to the calamari which was extremely flavorful as... More

The chips & salsa were best I've ever had at a restuarant. The Burrito Bowl was huge, enough for two meals. Service was quick & friendly. Would definitely come back again & recommend to friends/family.

A few of my girlfriends are here last night and ordered several items from the menu to get a good taste of the place- the fried plantains, the line rice, chicken quesadilla's, & Ka-pow shrimp tacos were great. My only gripe about the chicken quesadilla is it would've been great if lettuce and tomatoes were a part of the dish-... More

I've been coming to Mossfire for a few years now and always recommend it to friends who haven't tried it. I've worked my way down the list of appetizers and the almond-crusted goat cheese is a favorite of mine. For entrees, definitely try the gorgonzola salad or burrito. For the burrito, make sure you're prepared though... this thing is massive.... More

Food is nothing special a southern grill of sorts. If the food had slightly more flavor it would be very good the smothered burrito it's probably my favorite and the plantain appetizer is great. The crab cakes are different. However the real reason we go are there margarita specials can't be beat definitely worth a trip after work for happy... More
