Our son goes to UCR and we happened to drive by this place the other day. We decided to give it a try and weren't disappointed. Prices are very reasonable and service was fast and friendly. I had the taquitos and they were very tasty. My wife had a breakfast burrito and my son had the carne asada. Everything was... More

Stopped there again today while I was in Riverside and had lunch. The meals were excellent, ...just try to ignore the motel right next door. It's almost like eating in someone's home.

This is a nice, typical Mexican restaurant with good food and good service. They treat you like family. I was worried that they might go out of business because their prices were so low but then they raised them a little.

Food wasn't seasoned. It had no taste. The salsa and chips was extra, even though I ordered food to go. The salsa was very watery and had no consistency. The customer service was good. Place was clean too.

The decor isn't somewhat lacking, but they make up for it with the attentive service and quality food. I couldn't get over how good the food is at a very good price. We stopped for a late lunch, was only 4 or 5 other customers. They have to large screen tv' s mounted high on the wall at either end,... More

This family owned and run restaurant has been a Riverside institution for more than 40 years. They have excellent food prepared from scratch on site. They have some dishes not found elsewhere including the burrito Aguilar--pork in a flour tortilla fried and covered with an excellent green sauce. Service is accommodating but do not expect to get out in 25... More

I Love Tempo Del Sol. The food has always been good although the service used to be terrible. I actually screened potential dates by meeting them there and seeing how patient/friendly they were when waitress ignored us. The service is now much better and the food is the same, and inexpensive. My favorite is the nopales burrito. I visit at... More
