I live very close to Casa Rivera. It's my favorite breakfast place. Either the ham and eggs or tamale and eggs. The fresh tortilla are a plus.

After a hike in Oracle State Park we decided to stop in for breakfast. Both the breakfast burrito and the Huevos Rancheros were good and very nice portions. Will be back!

We stopped here for lunch before our trip to Biosphere 2 (about 5 minutes away) after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. The servings are huge and tasty, and the staff and waitress very friendly. I was sorry they were out of Chile Rellenos, but I got a plate with a taco, tostada, cheese enchilada,... More

We spotted this on our way to Oracle State Park. From exterior, we thought it looked like the perfect "local dive." We were right-basic furnishings but clean enough. My sis in law said women's restroom was dirty but my husband said men' s was fine. Food was great. House made hot tortilla chips and salsa. My husband and I split... More

Locals love this place but not sure the gealth department does. Sorry but no matter how good the place is I cannot eat in a place where I question the cleanliness of the kitchen and the cook. Do not recommend.

First time in Oracle, and we happened to stumble into Casa Rivera. I was in time to have a,breakfast burrito, and it was great! Service was excellent, and delivery of meal was super fast. Reasonably priced for giant burrito! Will definitely visit again when in area.

We were in the area and just took a chance on this place. It looks like nothing special on either the outside, nor the inside (my guess is that it was an old gas station). However, the servers were very friendly, and the food was very good. We both chose the #10 combination lunch, and it was plenty of food!... More

Best hash browns ever. Generous portions. My husband said his enchiladas were the best he had ever had. Breakfast served until 2. Closed on Sat. Open on Sunday. Cash only.

This is a low key but excellent Mexican restaurant with delicious tacos, burritos and other inexpensive dishes. We were there for lunch and loved all the food. It was very good value, and a great experience all around. It doesn't look like much when you pull off the road, but its is definitely worth a stop!

You have got to be kidding. The chile rellanos were like Fried eggs with chilis. Beans were watery. Given them several tries and that's it.....they're out!! They give big portions, but not good Mexican Food. The place is run down and old. And they don't take credit cards.
