Good menu selections here, we had enchiladas and tacos, both of which was good, salsa has something in it that I personally didn't care for but you cant please everybody.. Waitress was perfect and the iced tea was very good.

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant never to be disappointed in the food, the service nor the value. It is not fancy but very clean, has very good service and excellent food. Often times family will come to visit Tucson and they all want to eat at least one meal at the "Casa." Even the family members... More

A family owned Tucson icon. Case Del Rio serves great Mexican food and offers take out too. In the 20 years we have been going there, we've never been disappointed!

We've been living in Tucson since 1990 and Casa Del Rio was the first restaurant we ever ate it. We love this place and you can tell the food is good because you see local customers of all ages there. Many, many are repeat customers. Their specialty is the chimichanga, especially the machaca chimichanga. The chimi is huge, crispy and... More

This restaurant is very popular on Tucson's east side. I do eat there, but I don't get why its so popular. I guess there is a market for Americanized Mexican food. They serve lots of cheese crisps, I think they're ok, but not to die for. I do like their happy hour. Reduced price drinks and free nachos and other... More

I went to Casa Del Rio for lunch as it had 4.5 stars on Yelp. I didn't have time to read the reviews - don't make the same mistake. The hostess sat us next to the kitchen despite many other tables that were available; we asked to be moved. The complimentary chips and salsa arrived and were good; however, we... More

The chips n salsa were good, we were told by a friend of the family to order the cheese dip, it came out late and tasted slightly scorched. The carne was delicious. It's a nice place to stop by if you have a large party. Don't go far out of your way, their is great carne asada at much lower... More
