Don’t leave Fido at the hotel room or at home when it’s time for lunch or dinner. A dog’s gotta eat too! Bring them in and enjoy some delicious margaritas and fajitas. Rita’s on the River is a 500 seat restaurant with more than half of the seating area outside under covered patios plus an outdoor air-conditioned courtyard with umbrella tables. We have always loved animals and we wanted to create a way to help our local San Antonio animals by generating a product where a portion of sales from each purchase off our doggy menu can be donated to local animal rescue organizations.

Yappy Hour is a Happy Hour for your fur baby and you to enjoy! EVERY TUESDAY Rita’s on the River will offer $3 Margaritas on the Rocks/Frozen and $3 Queso and Chips from 6-8pm . Once a month on the FIRST TUESDAY we will have a Special Yappy Event with Yappy Hour plus live entertainment, dog businesses/organizations and giveaways. Please come and enjoy FREE parking downtown in participating lots and meters (For more info on parking click here-Downtown Tuesday). Meet with other furry families and relax on the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk.
