Good margherita's and the quesadillas were awesome. Alex our server did an amazing job. The Salsa leaves a lot to be desired. But all else was great. The view of the river is amazing.

Rita's is along the Riverwalk and has indoor and outdoor seating. Tx Mex at a very reasonable price, especially considering it is on the Riverwalk. Large tasty taco salad. Large variety of large size margaritas. Soft drinks have unlimited refills.

This has a super location with seating along the River Walk and nice interiors. The food is good (loved the tortilla soup/salad) and fresh chips, salsa make the meal! It's fun to relax and enjoy the view.

Was in town for a conference and went to Rita’s several times during the week. The food was good. I recommend the pork street tacos. A must have is their salsa a little hot but some of the best I ever had.

Rita's is the third Mexican restaurant on the Riverwalk that we have tried this week. Best complimentary chips we've had (perhaps too salty for some people). And their fresh-made salsa was excellent. Each of us ordered different enchilada plates. My wife wasn't impressed with her...More
