If you find yourself wandering around after wondering what you just saw at Biosphere 2, this restaurant is the antidote. The soft tacos were delicious!

Unless you're famished order just one. They're HUGE! but very delicious. Open late and reasonably priced.

This was a surprise find! Twelve of us had dinner here - I think everyone chose a different dish...I had 'flautas' and my wife 'tacos' - both excellent. The service was quick and friendly - we will definitely go again

We've been coming here since first coming to Tucson in 2008. By far my favorite. Good food, good portions, service great. Family run restaurant. Thursday night steaks are awesome.

I live very close to Casa Rivera. It's my favorite breakfast place. Either the ham and eggs or tamale and eggs. The fresh tortilla are a plus.

We spotted this on our way to Oracle State Park. From exterior, we thought it looked like the perfect "local dive." We were right-basic furnishings but clean enough. My sis in law said women's restroom was dirty but my husband said men' s was fine....More
