This restaurant recently moved from Bonsall to Fallbrook. I was disappointed in my luncheon there - bland food, old-tasting chips, salsa from a jar (I'm always suspicious of Mexican restaurants that do not make fresh salsa). The prices were high too. Fallbrook has several other Mexican restaurants, for a variety of pocketbooks, with much better food and prices.
This place is awful! Why hasn't it gone out of business yet?? There are never an customers in the huge restaurant. I went their on my bday and it was ruined! The server was SO rude and the food was cold and reheated. My food was so cold that I sent it back. When it came back it was the SAME exact food I had sent back, but had been WAY overheated in the microwave!! I was so mad! They were mad that I sent it back so they decided to let me know that. My bday was ruined by the horrible food and horrible service. The prices are way too expensive and they have even gone up since my bday. Do yourself a favor and STAY THE HELL OUT OF THIS DISGUSTING PLACE! It is not authentic at all!
We love the food here. We stop by once every two weeks or so after a round of golf. The staff is terrific, the atmosphere is first class, and the food is wonderful, hot and even things I normally don't like, such as Mexican rice, is amazing. The price is very good.
The only thing I think they could do better with are the chips before the meal as they could be lighter and fresher.
The main courses are incredible. I highly recommend the El Polo burrito and the seafood enchiladas - both simply scrumptious. While I haven't tried their margaritas, I've heard they are to die for.
I highly recommend this place and I've run into people from across the country that know about this little amazing restaurant.
Rio Rico is a small mexican restaurant hidden in the back of what's essentially a strip mall near the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce. Not exactly haute cuisine, but, not bad for a local mexican food joint.
We brought the kids this sunday and had no trouble getting a table for 6. The kids, being creatures of habbit, all ordered cheese enchiladas with rice and beans and seemed to enjoy them.
I opted for the Carnitas a la Tejana, which was a lot of food, and O.K., but, not great. It was a little dry for my taste. I know carnitas tend to be dry, but, this was a little hard to get down. The flavor was right on the mark. At $17, I expected it to be a little better.
My wife had the lobster special. This consisted of 2 broiled lobster tails with vegetables. It was really good. Lobster is so easy to overcook, and, I've found is almost ALWAYS overcooked in mexican restaurants. Overcooking causes the meat to become dry and tough. This, on the other hand, was delicate, tender, moist, and delicious. At $29, I thought this was a good deal for well prepared lobster.
To top off the experience, my wife and I shared a margarita in a 48oz goblet that resembled a medium sized fish bowl. total ticket for a family of 6 was $109.
