Be hungry because you will want to try everything. Great outdoor seating when in season, but they always have inside available. Nice choice of selections for breakfast. The ranchero was delish.

We came here because we were staying on resort property and we LOVE Mexican. It was a bit pricey but the atmosphere was worth it. I had the pork which was delicious and the salsa tree was great. We had the cake and shake for dessert... yummy!!! Live music was fabulous.

A shout out to Jackie our waitress, she made our night fun. I wish there were more waitresses like her. Food was good but a bit expensive. The restaurant was beautiful and everyone was friendly. I would definately recommend it if you want a nicer night out.

We enjoyed Rita's Kitchen Breakfast Buffet one weekday morning. The waiter was very attentive filling water glasses and picking up our empty plates. My husband enjoyed his omelet made just for him and I loved the Eggs Benedict. My mouth waters just thinking about it. We just to eat inside because it was August in Arizona (dry heat, you know)...

We are locals and are frequent guests at Rita's Kitchen. We've been there for breakfast, brunch, lunch, drinks and dinner. You simply cannot go wrong here! The combination of great service, good food with a southwest touch, and the amazing views of the mountain provide a unique and wonderful experience. Try it - you'll be happy you did!

Rita's was great on all levels service,ambiance and food. My husband and I tried various dishes Chicken Enchiladas, tacos, Salmon and Shrimp Enchiladas the best I've ever had. Jacquelyn made sure we got the booth we requested overall it was great. Note: it's not cheap but very good.
