Padre Rita Grill was a good dinner stop. The food was good and the service was fine, but nothing too memorable about it. My husbands verde enchiladas were the best on the island, however. This was still a good restaurant, and if we come back...More

Late dinner with business friends. Food was mediocre. Atmosphere inside mediocre. Service not very good. Decent live entertainment outside. Automatic -1 star just for being in south Texas.

I went with a group of 15 people and the service and food was wonderful. They were able to take care of us in about an hour and the plates were huge.

Ok this place had a good variety of burgers, steaks, seafood and Mexican. The patio is dog friendly but doesn't have a gate directly leading to patio. I got the tampiquena and my wife beef fajitas. Now this was authentic Tex-mex like you'd get from...More
