“The best southwestern restaurant ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

We have been going to Anchos in Riverside and have never been disappointed. The food is reasonably price and always fresh. The service in top notch and the atmosphere is very family oriented. There is always one of the owners onsite to make sure everything is up to their highest standards. They make their own corn tortilla chips and salsa daily. the chips are light and crispy and the salsa is not too hot. After the chips and salsa are delivered to your table, you are treated to all fo the home made flour tortillas you can eat. They have the tortilla maker in the middle of the restaurant and encourage kids to come and watch them make the tortillas. They even give the kids a ball of raw dough to play with (if you request it). All of their food is great, especially the steak fajitas, shrimp, ribs, steak, seafood enchiladas, chile rellanos and tamlaes. Their fish is always fresh and if you can pry yourself away from eating any of the beef, they are worth the price. The portions are large and for dessert, the kids can go to the little freezer they have an pick out their dessert. Every city deserves an Anchos. I just wish they were closer to where I live (40 minute drive but well worth it).

“Anchos - one of the best in Riverside, CA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Our whole family loves this place. Been going to Anchos for over a decade. We ALWAYS wait to get a table served by David - no matter how long it takes. Menu doesn't change very often, but that's ok because everything is really good. Can't go wrong with anything on regular menu, and items on 'special' are just that - special. My favorite is the carne asada skirt steak but you can't go wrong with the salmon or halibut or just about anything else.

Anchos is a family restaurant and they take special care of kids and you'll love them for it. It's like one big dinning room (there is some outside seating) with a fresh tortilla prep center in the middle.

Down side? Margaritas aren't the best I've ever had but I still suck a couple of 'em down. Make a trip to Anchos and you're sure to return time after time.

Just say, Pepe (he's one of the owners) sent me. And don't forget to ask for David as your server - tell him Hugh and Mary Jo sent you and he'll understand.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

The food was great and relatively affordable. The atmosphere was very friendly and not too chaotic. They make their own tortillas and the customer service is great.
