We were at the end of a long road trip and very hungry. I wanted to get a Tex Mex flavor since we were only in town for one night and stopped at Ritas since we were staying on the riverwalk. They seated us quicker than they estimated which was nice. It was an average wait time to place our order and get our food. However my order was wrong, so that added time to correct it. They didn't check on us to refill our water. They did fix my order (twice), so that's a good thing i suppose. We didn't get any discount or comp. Price was decent for the area i guess - i didn't really have anything to compare to other than looking at the menus posted for the other nearby restaurants. I don't feel the flavors were original at all - rather unflavorful. I personally would not recommend this spot based on there being alot of other options in the area to try.

I had street tacos. They were average. The waiter didn't refill salsa. He had to be asked twice to bring some salsa with the meal (by two people) and only brought a small bowl. He had to be asked to bring napkins and silverware. We had our food before our silverware. He wasn't very attentive. It wasn't even very busy.

Not impressed and probably won't return.

Great Tex-Mex food on the River Walk! This is the only place I’ve ever seen a frozen margarita with a Big Red soda in it, and it was amazing. Every place should serve these! Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was great. Not the most authentic Tex-mex I’ve ever eaten, but it was good and the atmosphere was fun. We’ll be back again!

Thank you for stopping in. We do try and keep the pigeons out but with all the doors open and the garage by the bar they tend to out smart us
