This is my go-to for Mexican food. It is fairly priced and tastes great! The staff has always been nice and I have yet to try something I haven't liked!

Very clean place with impeccable service. The food was very good, but nothing out of the ordinary. I got a taco salad ($5.99 lunch special) and a Chalupa ($1.00 Wednesday special) and it was more than I needed to eat. The chips are homemade and...delicious; the salsa was just ok.

We like their chipotle chicken tacos and asked for them to include tomato and sour cream this time for a 50 cent upcharge for each one. We also ordered a small side of guacamole. The server said it cost a dollar more on that Tuesday...and we said fine. It was really, really small for $5. Server got our plates reversed when the food came and it took a while for us to realize it. Each of us had already eaten two of our three tacos. Last point. The drink glasses are huge but are packed with ice so there is very little drink in the plastic cup. They will provide refills and to-go cups but the fact that the drinks are mostly ice is a bad vibe. Guessing most customers just drink what they are served and leave it at that. And the drinks are priced very high. A restaurant has to make money and I get that but don't overcharge on some things to offset a promotion. We will go back for Tuesday and Wednesday promotions but won't order beyond the tacos and enchiladas plus the required drink for each customer. The experience just left us feeling over charged on this ocassion.More

We visited La Ribera on Taco Tuesday! We had delicious dollar tacos! They were simple but on point! The chicken was moist and flavorful. The beef was less flavorful but good. I will warn you that I wanted a side salad and ordered the make...your own salad. I got a huge plate with a lot of shredded iceberg topped with my toppings. They were abundant! But, it was more than I wanted for a side salad. The staff was very nice. The salsa and chips were delicious. It is the perfect cheap Mexican restaurant!More

Great for a cheap lunch or dinner. I eat here often. Usually at least once a week. Lunch prices are great!

I was asked where I wanted to go for my birthday supper and I chose La Ribera, thankfully it fell on a Tuesday. They have the best tacos any where! The place was packed at 6pm of course but the staff does a fantastic job...of getting the people in and out quickly. Great service, fantastic chips and salsa before the meal. We will be back again.More

I have gone twice for the daily specials. $1 quesadilla. First time it was great. Best chicken quesadilla I’ve ever had!! Second trip was still good—just not as spectacular as I remember. Food comes out hot and quick. Great place to stop if you are...in need of a quick meal. Toss are the only two times I have gone so I can’t speak to any other food items. But I will keep going back.More

Stopped in for lunch and it looked pretty busy. We were seated right away with chips and salsa. The food was hot, and delicious. The service was awesome, and the restaurant was very clean. Would definitely return and recommend this place to others.

This restaurant is unique in that they don't sell alcohol or are open on Sunday. The food is always very good, the service is great, and the prices are reasonable. You can't ask for more than what they offer. They also have daily specials.
