I love Tony's for the quick service and authentic, good food. I'm hooked on the ground beef tacos and chili relleno burritos but my guilty pleasure is the Saturday Special! $.50 tostadas are the best ever!!! I usually order between 3-6 depending on how greedy I feel. The girls are like machines, cranking out the orders and always willing to... More

I love Mexican food, and Tony's by far is the best around. Not your usual gringo style Mexican food, but the real thing. I go there regularly and love it!

Tony's thrives on old family recipes that have keep them in business for more than two decades. The restaurant is in a strip mall on Riverside's Eastside. All of their dishes are made from scratch and all are excellent.

Tony's is a place to come for great food at a great price! I always order the Tony's Special Burrito special. You get the burrito, french fries, and a drink for about $7! It's absolutely delicious! Refills are 50 cents, and they have more of a chili paste base hot sauce. I would rather prefer the tomato salsa base hot... More

I have been going to Tony's for more than 12 years. I cannot give one recommendation because everything is so amazingly delicious. It would not be uncommon to see the line going out the door at lunch, but people wait... because it is worth it! I live overseas now and all I can think of when my plane touches down... More

Today is the last day I will ever eat at Tonys. This is truly a shame. The eating area is clean, the service is friendly, and they are always busy. Sadly, upon receiving a take out order today of chicken tacos, and after having eaten 3/4 of one, I set it down only to have the shell open. Thank God... More

I have been a fan of Tony's since the days they were in the old A&W stand out in Arlington on Magnolia. The place is mainly take out but they have a few tables if you wish to eat there. There are alot of choices for a quick lunch or take home dinner in Riverside but I always make a... More
