    Great food,atmosphere,& staff!Go when it's nice out and enjoy the experience. Beware of the pigeons and ducks that want your food.I highly recommend this place...especially if you're from out of town!

    Clearly if it's busy (like it always is on the Riverwalk it can get cray cray, be nice to the waitstaff) food is good. Crispy tacos are really big and first round of chips is free .75 after for each 1

    Loved our waitress, Virginia! I had Chicken Flauta Dinner. It was great! Atmosphere good, scenery on the River Walk was good, ducks greeted us for dinner. Loved it!

    Absolutely the best traditional Mexican food I've had in a long time. Wish I was a local. Outstanding and inexpensive.

    Amazing Mexican food and extremely pleasant ambience by the river walk . Will miss the tex-mex salsa and guacamole back home, it's so different from the Mexican food back there.

    The Casa Rio is a superb Mexican restaurant! It is always a treat. try the regular plate, which has samplings of lots of different good things.

    I'd come back just for the amazingly good fresh salsa, but everything else is delicious too! Definitely on the do-again list! <3

    As a margarita fan, I enjoyed mine a lot and the chili on a cold night outside hit the spot. Good price too.

    Fajita plate is not grilled strips of meat - but grilled meat cut into strips. chicken is horrible, but the steak is tasty. The salsa is pretty good - actually spicy. Overall not real Mexican food.

    History and huge plates that taste above average ! I have been here numerous times and we usually take visitors to San Antonio here.

    Great salsa and authentic TexMex for the Riverwalk. Go down to Mi Tierra or La Margarita for the real thing.

    Locals know the story here. Keep moving along and hit Pierdas Negras. Tourist, not a bad spot at all if your visiting. Enjoy the riverwalk!!

    Three words: ground beef tacos. Yeah, fantastic ambience and mariachis. The food is however, abysmal.

    go for the peach margarita and even if the wait is long ask for an outside table.

    If you love mixed drinks, you'll enjoy here. Minus the drinks...the foods alright. Still worth a try imo.

    When ordering the soft taco, make sure you ask for shredded cheese if you want cheese.

    Charo beans and chili relleno were surprisingly good. Reasonably priced as well.

    Some don't like the food here. I liked it OK. hefty portions but they skimped on the alcohol! But remarkably cheap!!

    great food but horribly slow because they use fancy ipads instead of just writing your order like normal places

    Nothing special here except the riverside seating. The food was nothing special- fast, cheap, but no different than Mexican food in any mall in America. Good salsa though!

    Very, very bland. For being such a "historic" location, the food is NOT a reflection of that whatsoever. If you are looking for flavorless, Americanized cafeteria style food, this place is for you!

    I was hungry and this was the first place I saw. Not worth it. Food was not that great at all. Had "a la carte" which was a soft taco and an enchilada. Neither were that tasty.

    This place was AWFUL. The food and margaritas were horrible. Not real or fresh Tex-Mex food. It is more of a tourist attraction since it is a historical restaurant. Don't waste your money.
