“Like mom cooks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

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 they give opportunity to the local high school seniors to work there. Whether you have breakfast, lunch or dinner, the plates are generous and delicious. Our sons favorite is the carne asada plate. Though he now lives in San Diego, he always asks us to bring him a plate when we visit. If he comes home, that's the first place he wants to go. Great chile relleno, machaca, shrimp diablo, and the rice, beans and salsa, too yummy.

“Best Mexican Cuisine in the South Bay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

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 tried almost every Mexican restaurant in the South Bay and this family restaurant is at the top!
