It's famous for is colorful umbrellas on the riverwalk. It should be for the peach margaritas! !! Unbelievable!!. Cheaper on riverwalk than in dallas. Better too! Watch out for the ducks though. They will do anything to get a chip

We decided to eat here after the riverboat tour because our guide gave us a little history about the restaurant. We went around 2pm with no wait. We sat inside because we were hot and were able to sit by a big window so we could still people watch. The Mariachis were awesome! The chips and salsa were really good... More

One of my favorite spots on the River Walk. Always great service and the food is awesome. Best prices on the river. Drinks prices are great, must try the house made Sangria, yum! We sat outdoors and were entertained by the ducks.

Good solid Mexican food. Service is very good and prompt. I didn't sit outside along the river due to rain, but it would add nice view and atmosphere during summer if it's not too hot. Chips and salsa is complementary. My chicken enchilada was very tasty and filling.

We had a great dinner here. The service was quick and attentive. The prices were very reasonable compared to many places on the river, would definitely recommend this restaurant, especially if you are on a budget.

We enjoyed our meal in Casa Rio. We liked the thin tortilla chips they had very much. Margarita was good. Both the frozen one and on the rocks. Food was good. Nothing extraordinary but it was tasty. Their sopapillas were very good.

I would give this 0 stars if I could; I can't remember when I've had a worse meal. I was in San Antonio with colleagues on a business trip and we decided to visit the Riverwalk for dinner. We really wanted to eat Mexican or Tex Mex and it seems Casa Rio is it. I'm from California, so I know... More

Was visiting the river walk with family and friends and always wanted to try this iconic place. Our party of 15 was craving a good dinner and willing to wait for it however this place was too busy for our business. They wouldn't even take a reservation. I tried to convince them of the large amount of money they could... More

Great location right on the Riverwalk and one of the oldlest restaurants there. Dinner was good but just typical Mexican food, nothing out of the ordinary.
