Customers beware!!!!! The food takes forever to come out! You end up eating several bowls of chips and salsa!! Service is very slow!! A burrito will cost you $8.00!! No rice and beans! Our dish also had a hair melted into the cheese!!! Better off at Taco Bell!

While traveling through El Paso we decided to abandon the interstate restaurants in favor of a local restaurant. While driving on Doniphan Drive, I noticed all the vehicles parked outside the Riviera. So, we stopped for lunch. The food and service were great. We tend to eat at Mexican restaurants in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California and found this... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I was a child and it was a little "hole in the wall". I live in Denver now and go whenever I get back to El Paso. This last visit the food was so so and the waitress was non existent. Even the queso wasn't at it's best. Sad.

Open since 1948, I have been coming to this restaurant since the late 1960s. Always good and friendly service. There is a cantina in the back and the traditional restaurant in the front. It has been updated and is lighter than my last visit. But it is the food that I come for. Almost as soon as you are seated,... More

We love going on Mondays for taco night. They have great service and good food. The food is good everyday but our family enjoys the great tacos.

We went there during the Christmas season and was very pleased. All of our 4 meals were delicious and served quickly. The service was friendly and prompt. Living in the Houston area we really appreciated the low prices. We also went to the Riviera a few days later for breakfast and enjoyed very the Huevos Rancheros and the cheese omelet.... More

The flautas at the Riveria are huge. I would prefer they serve 6 small one, instead of hooking 2 tortillas together & serving 3 large ones. The food is OK - not the best Mexican food I have had in El Paso. The wait staff is always nice and attentive.

Also love the tacos, especially the shredded beef. Tastes like they use marinated tender brisket. Flautas also very good. Good service, would return!
