Reviewed January 2, 2013

Casa Rivera is more than just gargantuan portions of excellent traditional Mexican food - it's a place where you feel welcomed and appreciated! This family takes great pride in this restaurant and wants you to know how important you are as their customer. We have been eating here for several years and really look forward to coming home!

“Best Mexican food south of the Gila River!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

The truth is Casa Rivera is a hole in the wall, greasy spoon, but in the best classic sense!
The locals go for the great food, fair prices, and large servings and not for the hi-tone decor!
Go for the best Mexican food in Southern Pinal County! Rudy (the dad and chief cook) prepares the biggest and bestest Chirizo and eggs platter ever, order a side of beans and potatoes to go with it. You may need take-home box cause the portions are so big! Or, do like me, finish the huge platter and don't eat again till dinner. Rudy's kids, Chris and Crystal are the usual servers and they do a great job of rememberin' a regular customer's menu favorites.
If you want starchy linen napkins, fancy drinkin' glasses, and fine china plates just drive on past Oracle till ya get to Yuma. Is Casa Rivera the most sparklin' spot in town? Well, it'l do!!!

“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

The food here is good, not great. They have the usual standbys, well prepared. It's a family run restaurant, friendly and casual.
I wish they'd scrub the place up a bit.

Family owned and operated, Rivera's is the one for really good Mexican food ~ breakfast, lunch, dinner ~ & a mighty good charbroiled chicken sandwich.

“Maybe we missed something..............”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

We read the 5 star reviews of this place, and couldn't wait to go there. So much for 5 star reviews! I reluctantly give this place 2 stars, only because we were hungary and the portions were large, and that's it.......no further comment.
