Word on the Riverwalk

Why Choose Rita’s

Instead of us telling you why you should come visit us and try our monster margaritas, our pet-friendly riverwalk venue or our delicious Tex-Mex food menu – we thought words from past guests would be a better way!

Thank you so much for your donation to the Valor Games! We will use it as a prize to a lucky participant. I hope we are able to work with Rita’s on the River in the future!

Thanks again for helping us make our daughters’ 18th birthday a special event. She and her friends had a great time and the food and service was excellent. Please tell Jeffrey how much we appreciate him.

THANKS

The Cramers

I just wanted to take the time to convey our thanks to you and Rita’s on the River for your generous support of our Lone Star Guide Dog Raisers Puppy Fiesta 2016. Thanks to you, our event was a huge success. We were able to host over 200 raisers and guests, along with more than 80 puppies in training. The training that we received over the weekend was invaluable in helping the raisers prepare their puppies to become successful working guides. The Friday evening meal received rave reviews and was an excellent way to kick start the weekend.

Trip Advisor

Such a cute restaurant with friendly staff! Riverwalk is a bit crowded this time of year though, so be warned! Quesadillas were outstanding and the spinach queso is a must! I was so busy eating I didn’t even take pictures for my review!

My wife and I had to find a quick dinner before catching a plane. Good food! My wife had beef street tacos and she liked! I had enchiladas-one beef and one cheese. The chips and salsa were excellent! Our waitress was cognizant of our need to move things along. And she was NICE! The virgin margaritas were so yummy.

Hands down, without question, the BEST margaritas you will find anywhere! Perfectly potent, softly icy, and blended! YUM! This was our second visit and we can’t wait to go back. Great service and atmosphere on the riverwalk also!

We were handed a $20 coupon to bring our airman to Rita’s so we gave it a try. Very satisfied! The free chips and salsa were good, but the Beef Nachos were better with fresh ground beef, queso blanco, guacamole and sour cream. My airman son and I split Beef Shank Fajitas which were fantastic.

What a wonderful place to eat! Great atmosphere. Friendly staff! You weren’t made to feel rushed. We didn’t get any adult beverages, however the ones I saw being brought to other tables looked great! The meal is more than satisfying!

Visiting parents in Spring Texas and we drove out to the riverwalk to get some great food. We stopped here at the bar and got some amazing martinis, a free guac and chips from yelp and More. We got Christian, the bartender, who was helping us. He’s just great. Great conversation, cool dude, personable and just an asset to this establishment. Also makes a killer peach margarita and guacamole! Amazing experience!!!

First of all, sit on the patio. It will be worth the wait. When you come to San Antonio you go to the Riverwalk, have a margarita and eat Mexican food. Yes, I am a tourist on this trip (I did live in San Antonio for a spell (Go Churchill), and Rita’s does a very good job of making a non-local leave happy. I did partake by having a few Old faithful Rita’s and they were really good.Service was friendly, Rita’s were great and I really liked my meal. Did I say how good the Ritas were? Stay hungry my friends…

We really enjoyed the house margaritas on the rocks! My friend had the pork street tacos, and I had the chicken enchiladas with the poblano cream sauce. Everything was extremely tasty. It is one of the more casual restaurants along the Riverwalk. We loved the Mariachi band who played at our table (for $20 or tips). The price for our dinner, including 3 margaritas was very reasonable.

Great margaritas & appetizers. It would be a 30 minute wait to get a table but the hostess found us a nice table near the bar where we could order cocktails & appetizers. Great service by entire staff. We had margaritas, nachos & quesadillas…….all were good especially the nachos & guacamole. We enjoyed the visit so much we bought their t-shirts,,,,they have an awesome saying “margaritas so good you’ll forget the Alamo”.

My visit was this past Saturday night the 18th. The workers there were very polite. Our food was amazing! The Rita’s were so good! Considering the atmosphere at this location is extremely busy the staff was friendly and perfect! It’s hard to be in customer service and it’s tough being a server! You all did great!! Thank you for a fantastic experience on the River walk, it was my first visit ever to San Antonio!!!
