    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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!

    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.

    Mediocre. The hostess was rude, the server got everything right, but wasn't very sociable. The fajitas dont even come on a skillet and were luke warm. Plus, the chips were greasy...

    LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. The food is terrible. Tortillas, beans, and rice are store bought. They use frozen fajita meat and charge you $15 for the "fajita" plate.
