Always in pursuit of good Mexican food, I stopped in for dinner at Rivera's Mexican Café and enjoyed everything I sampled on their lengthy menu. Tucked away in a neighborhood strip mall, it is a casual setting with high backed wooden booths. My chicken chimichanga was stuffed full of white meat chicken, topped with a white cheese sauce, and was... More

We got the shrimp, chicken and beef combination, served sizzling hot and perfectly cooked. The margaritas were very good too.

We went there for an anniversary dinner based on reviews. First, it took forever to be greeted and seated. Once seated (only 14 booths/tables I think), there were only two other couples inside. They were ordering drink after drink and of course the sole waitress was paying them attention. We don't drink, so we got water and soda. We were... More

First time dining at Rivera's and it was a nice surprise. The menu is extensive and there's something to appeal to everyone. Our waitress, Jodi, was great and very attentive. The fajitas were really good as well as some of the sides - especially the rice. Give it a try.

I've visited Riveras several times in the last two months. Their outside seating is especially convenient for a last minute margarita and a quesadilla. The shredded chicken quesadilla with a little spinach and mushrooms is delicious. I also like their shredded chicken burrito with with a little spinach inside and melted cheddar on the top. As you can see, the... More

I have been here a few times. What I love the most is the margaritas. They make authentic margaritas that doesn't taste very sour liked those made with the pre-made mix. I also had their enchiladas and they were so good. I would love to keep coming back to this place but I want their service to get a little... More

Waited for ever to get served tonight then waited at least 15 miinutes for 2 margaritas. Food was uninspired and overpriced. Next time going to chipoltes its way better and dont have to spend an hout to eat a burrito.

Had date night there and the food was good. We are from Texas and we were impressed with the flavor of the food and salsa. I had the fried avocado and my husband had the Angus Chimichanga. We will definitely go again!

The food was good although more southwestern Tex-Mex than Mexican. The soup of the day was a seafood gumbo, not Mexican at all, but it was wonderful. Wait staff was pleasant and good happy hour specials. This was our first visit and plan to return. Only real disappointment is they do not open until 4 pm daily and it would... More

As a Texan this restaurant cannot match Mexican food available near Dallas. However it is good food and they have a daily margarita special. I have frequented this place for years since it is convenient and has decent food. My children like it and the owner and wait staff are very nice to all types of groups
