I'm always in search of the best tacos. Casa Rivera's is at the top of my list of Bests. My first chicken taco there just blew me away. The chicken has a roasted flavor, it's moist, and loaded with flavor. Even the lettuce was outstanding!...More

We had a great lunch here. Well priced, super service and fresh food. This is truly a family-run business and it shows. They were working together like clockwork. And I really appreciated the complimentary fried ice cream for my birthday!

You get a lot of food for your money. Friendly staff and good service. It's not great food but it's decent. You won't leave hungry.
