Eh. The food was fine and the drinks good, but the service was lack-luster.

Someone Who Appreciates Good Service

TERRIBLE First the service was terrible, I ran out of water half way through my meal and didn't get a refill and so did the rest of my family. Second the food cold and and slow. We waited one hour for our food no joke. Third we were stuck with 18% gratuity and this guy sucked so bad. Please do not go there.

Over the last four years, I have

Over the last four years, I have returned to Rita's multiple times. It is the one thing that keeps me coming back to the River Walk! The food is great. The service is friendly and the margaritas are incredible. I definitely recommend Rita's on the River to kick back and relax after a long day of shopping! My favorite dish is the Tortilla Soup!

Rita's Misused My Credit Card!!!

Don't ever eat at Rita's On The River!! They charged somebody else's bill to my credit card, as well as my own bill, and won't take it off! When I just spoke with the general manager, she was not concerned for my situation and didn't even care when I mentioned I wouldn't be visiting their restaurant again... And I now regret the generous tip we left for the server who was very careless with our credit card! p.s. the... view more

The worst dining choice on the Riverwalk

This was honestly the absolute worst Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at. You'd think that it being in business for a while and being in the middle of the Riverwalk that it would have something going for it? No. The fajitas were lukewarm, and the meat was without flavor. The rice was dry. The refried beans were passable but could have come out of a can. And worst of all was the margarita. It was very light on the t... view more

Don't bother; save your money

We had our rehersal dinner before our wedding at rita's and it was the worst ever experience. The service was bad just like every other review states. (wish I would of read them first). The food was bland. I'm from SA and that is not Mexican food. After we came back from our honeymoon several of our guest that night confirmed the exact same experience at the restaurant. I wrote the manager a letter, and got nothing b... view more

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 any of them. But I thought the restaurant was a great de... view more

Worst Birthday Experience!

We went to Ritas on the River for my friend's birthday and it was horrible! First, he huge Texas sized ritas are only made w/ 2 shots for the 32 oz. That wasn't a big deal, although for $16, it's still a bit steep.\r \r Then when it was time to pay, they mixed up the cards on the wrong checks. When we asked to have them fixed, they came back wrong again! Forty five minutes later we asked to talk to the manager. He... view more

If you are looking for decent Mexican food... this place is ok.

My husband and I ended up at Rita's Friday night after checking into our hotel. We were looking for some great Mexican food but we were tired of walking! \r Rita's wasn't ""really"" bad, just ""kind of"" bad. The food is a little bland, not the tex-mex flavor we are accustom to. The tea was awful and made me feel ill, I ended up with water. \r The staff, although nice, were very slow. \r All in all... it was just ... view more
