Fantastic Food!

This is the classic hole in the wall. Actually makes a hole in the wall look upscale and I would never have gone into this area or restaurant without a referral. Boy am I glad I went!!! The food is terrific!! Maybe even made a little better by the dingy atmosphere because it is so unexpected.\r

Green chile burro, enchilada style with green sauce on top instead of red. Hot, fresh and unbelievable flavor. As others have mentioned, it's probably completely unhealthy, but what the hel

Sketchy neighborhood, no sign, but no mistaking the location - it's the only house with cars lining both sides of the street. People inside are very friendly and you can always strike up a conversation with the customers. Food this good seems to put a smile on everyone's face.\r
\r
If you are looking for fancy, go somewhere else. But for amazing food (a limited menu) and the benefit of discovering a hidden gem, go to Rito's.

Best Red Chile Burritos in Town!

First of all, Rito's MARKET? Last I checked, they have only around 5 things on their menu, and all of them are phenomenal. But this is no market. It's run in a residential neighborhood right across the street from a school. My dad started taking me here when I was just a wee lad, and I haven't stopped going back. At least once a month I trek over to Rito's (It's about a 40 minute drive, I live in Fountain Hills) and bring back a tray full of steaming burritos (both red and green, but ...view morepersonally I prefer the red) and rice.\r
\r
Some people were saying that the restaurant is a little bit too small, and there's limited seating. I'll agree with you on the seating part, they have some tables outside around the house. The thing is, they ARE outside, so if it rains, you get wet. Very wet. But the inside of the restaurant is waiting room only. The great thing about Rito's is you will rub shoulders with all walks of life in there. And almost everybody is friendly, happy, and more than willing to strike up a conversation. Mostly about how good the food is.\r
\r
My advice about the food: if you're watching your weight you shouldn't be in there. Everything is made the traditional way; with lard. I know, some of you are thinking ""Lard? Gross, that stuff is bad for you!"" and I would have to say your right. But it's impossible to get the over-the-top flavor of traditional Mexican fare without some sacrifices. Also, bring napkins. Lots and lots of them. Because the red and green chile sauces are both very liquidy. I usually hold it over the bowl of rice so that all the drippings go into the rice, making it even better.\r
\r
So, long story short: Rito's is an institution to be reckoned with; and I don't think i've had better Mexican food anywhere. Including Mexico! Whatever you're doing Salinas family, keep it up!

Everything is good. Miss the tostadas.

The bean burritos are just like my mom's were. The thin beans can be mixed with rice and you have a more stable burrito. Personally, order some chips and get a free bean dip. Red chili is excellent!

Best old school mexican food ever!

I've been eating Rito's since I was 17 (in 1993) and it is still the same. I have since lived in NYC & Atlanta and nothing anywhere compares to their burros and their beef tacos (which they regretfully have discontinued) and their hot sauce (I wish they sold it in pint containers-I love it!). I have returned back to live in the valley (Chandler) and I go there at least once a month. What's great about Rito's is you see everyone in society standing in line there, talking, sitting and...view more eating together. You can't say that about any other restaurant anywhere. It is the best!view less

BEST BEAN BURROS!

I used to live in the same neighborhood as Rito's. In fact I went to kindergarden at the school across the street. By far, this is the best bean burritos in town. They are always hot and stuffed with beans! Only once in my life have I eaten their bean burro without spilling the beans all over my hands and plate. I challenge anyone to try them and not SPILL THE BEANS! If you are lucky enough to eat here you MUST eat them outside on their picnic tables... if it's not too hot for you. NJO...view moreY!view less

Overrated

I had been wanting to try this place for a long time and was very disappointed. We ordered a green chili chimi and a lard, oops I mean bean, burro. The green chimi was very average and the bean burro was gross. We also had a side of rice, which was good as was a tortilla on the burro. It was overpriced boring food. If you are looking for good Mexican food, try Pedros in Glendale where you can get a lunch special green burro with rice and beans included for under $7, plus you get c...view morehips and salsa. I guess this is just one of those dive places that maybe when it started 25 years ago was a good place to eat, but now, yuck. I can't understand why it is so crowded, maybe people just think it is more authentic because you have to eat outside and it's in a very primitate type building.view less

My Family.

Well For those of you that are familiar with the family that owns and operates Rito's Mexican food, then you can relate, if you dont ,no problem. I am a Salinas, the owing family, actually i am one of the twenty three grandchildren of the owners. I have had so many experinces at that restraunt while growing up. I actually used to live in the little corner house by the resraunt, but have sinced moved. Anyways about the food. I grew up on Rito's food from eating rice and beans as a baby ...view moreto enjoying THE BEST burritos in town as a teen. What sets this mexican eatery apart from all the others is the genuinely good food and atmosphere. All the food there is great and the service is good too. People complain about no places to sit except outside and long lines. What they dont understand is that all of these factors are just part of the experience. The experience of enjoying the best mexican food in town, which will bring you back for more whether you work down town, are from out of state, or live down the street. I can guarantee that you will be back for more.view less

By Far The Best

I discovered Rito's when it had only been open about a year. The green chile burro enchilada style with a side of beans was the best I had ever tasted. It was good enough to dream about. I no longer live in Arizona, and I know that here in L.A., the food is based on a different style of cooking, but nothing compares. If I find myself in Phoenix for any reason, I try to plan my trip to coincide with Rito's hours of operation because I need my fix! Granted, last time I was there, it seem...view moreed there was less meat in the burrito, but the wonderful flavors of the chile and those amazing beans were exactly as I remembered. Now, maybe the one reviewer who didn't like it was upset over waiting an hour, I'm not sure. However, be smart and call in your order ahead of time. I've eaten Mexican food all over Arizona and California and I have never had occasion to change my mind. If you know what good tastes like, Rito's is by far the best!view less
