This place has good tex-mex style food. Happy hour offers 3$ margaritas. This is a small, cozy restaurant with a southwest feel and theme. If you want to experience tex-mex food then this is the best place to eat at in the area.

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...More

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...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...More
