We ordered guacamole and it was prepared fresh at our table! The margarita's are very good. Friendly service, indoor/outdoor dining. The fajita's were fabulous.

Rita's occupies quite a few linear feet of the River Walk and as a result your server can have a lot of ground to cover. This resulted in some very spotty service during our visit. Food was good, not great, as were the Margaritas.

Really enjoyed a great lunch at Ritas on the River. Our server Tori was great, ask for her if you want awesome service, the margaritas are so good and several sizes to choose from. I highly recommend for a good meal and drink!

Very accommodating to our large (crazy) party and the new Airmen and Women. The food was fantastic and the Strawberry Blonde was AMAZE-BALLS. We will definitely be back!!!

Great margaritas and fajitas. Loved the location. Serious kudos to Faviola and Brooke for saving a train wreck. They did a great job taking care of a bad waitressing job.
