Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Good food, reasonable specials, and good service keeps bringing us back. The Margarita specials don't hurt, either.

“Really, really wonderful southwestern an Mexican food”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Just got back from Rio Mirage Cafe, in Surprise, AZ. Had dinner with my wife, brother-in-law and his wife. We are all visiting from Ohio, and we saw that Rio Mirage had some great reviews. From Sun City, it was a short drive to the restaurant. My wife and I both ordered the Carne Asada, which was served with rice and very tasty refried beans. My brother-in-law ordered the taco combo and his wife ordered the chicken and spinach enchiladas. Everything was served piping hot, and had some great flavor. All of us ordered drinks, and after all was said and done, the bill, including tax, was less than $72. A very enjoyable at a very reasonable price. Can't wait for our next visit.

“Great Staff and Food”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We arrived and they were busy. We waited, but not for long. When we were done and had paid, the waiter gave us a free fried ice cream!

“Very fresh mexican with a nice decor”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Consistently very good. Entering you find nice décor that makes you feel like you are in a nice Mexican cantina. Nice booth and dining room seating with very nice décor. Their menu has changed over the past year, nice offerings, combos, specialties. We had the El Rio which is their top specialty with chicken, beef or shrimp, had the chicken, with cream cheese jalapenos, roasted poblanos, rice, beans, all really good. Also had the combo chicken enchiladas, good fresh chicken with rice and beans. All portions are hearty. And of course never ending chips with very fresh salsa. Good bar area. Very nice staff, family owned place, no chain meals here. A favorite in this valley and nice to have in Surprise.
