Rita's On The River ~ Rocked when I was there!
I only live a few hours from San Antonio and we visit it every year. I read the reviews prior to going, but still decided to go and try Rita's on the River. I really disagreed with most of the reviews. By no means is this a five star fine dining restaurant, but I have eaten at many of the restaurants on the river and the food is not the greatest TexMex...at any of them. But I thought the restaurant was a great deal of fun. First, we were seated right by the river which is the prime location. I ordered the Regular Texas Margarita which in my opinion with a really good size and $6.00, which is a really modest price for a tourist area. My husband and I had the Beef/Chicken Fajitas for 2 and my kids had tacos and quesadillas....all served with generous serving of beans/rice. The food was not out of this world and especially since I live in Texas, I have had better TexMex, but it was good and I did not find any of the food to be salty or bad. The waiter was extremely nice & freindly and the service was really good. And really being on the river watching the people walk by while enjoying a Margaritas, well you cannot beat that! Now here is a tip for all of you that are thinking about going...you can buy a Rita's On The River Gift Certificate from Restaurant (dot) com for $10.00 it is good for $25.00 off of $35.00. You can also google Restaurant (dot) com Coupon Codes. I just got one for 80% off so I only paid $2.00 for my $25 off $35. You cannot beat that. We ate there twice this week while in San Antonio. The four of us 2 Adults/2Children at for about 60.00 ($18.00 of that being Margarita's) minus $25.00 plus tip...I think that is a great deal especially for being in such a touristy section! Hope this helps everyone!
