I actually hate fish but want to fit fish in my diet more. Total WIN on the fish tacos! Atmosphere is really cool as well. Definitely want to come back.

Rio Mirage Cafe, in El Mirage, AZ, is one of favorites for taking out of town guests or just going on our own. Their tacos are excitingly good, though I'm a chimichangas fan.. I'm disappointed they don't have Pulpo (octopus) on their menu, but another...More

My hubby and I visited the Rio Mirage Cafe for lunch. The food was just ok. The rice and beans weren’t very flavorful. They do not serve horchata. Service was adequate.

A very complete and varied menu so you’re sure to find your favorite dish. The service is always fast and friendly and the food comes out piping hot. They have a great selection of beers and the Margaritas are first class!

I hadn't been here in years. So glad we tried it today. 12:45 was a good time to go -- most of the lunch crowd had filtered out. We had delicious tacos with good sides. Decent house wine, good service -- I thought it was...More
