If you want the real thing in Mexican food, Rito's is your ticket. When people move away from Phoenix, it's Rito's food that they miss the most. I've been eating at Rito's since the '80s and I can say that their food never changes, it is always top notch. You can depend on getting the crispiest tacos with the juiciest meat, the most perfectly spiced and blended enchilada sauce and, without contest, the best refried beans ANYWHERE. I love that they still serve take-out of their excellent food from the same little house; they haven't expanded at the sacrifice of their incredible food. You can smell Rito's as soon as you're on their street. It reaches out and grabs you. If you weren't hungry before you got there, your appetite will open up at the aromas coming from their kitchen. Phoenix isn't famous for very much of its cuisine, but Rito's is the jewel in its culinary crown, and that's for sure!

 Our family has been going to Ritos since it opened in the 70's. It is the BEST Mexican Food around. We love the simplicity, you get in and out quickly. They haven't changed a thing, which is why it is so fabulous! Some of our family members have moved away and the first thing we want to do when coming home is go to Rito's, that is if Mom doesn't actually brought it to the airport! My sister actually stopped on her way out of town, picked up Rito's, drove to Salt Lake, and greeted us with food in hand. If you LOVE MEXICAN FOOD, you will not be disappointed. Once you experience the food, it becomes a necessity in your life....I'm not joking, my mouth is watering and I can smell the food as I type this!

A friend brought me to Ritos today for lunch, it was my first time and it’s amazing! Best green chili burro I’ve had since moving to the Valley. I live about 20 mikes away and will definitely drive the distance to eat here again! Five stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was born and raised in the Garfield neighorhood and I can proudly say that I'm one of the few that has been going there since they opened in June of 77 when I was 11. My wife Tamara is from Texas and she thinks it's better than the lone star state's mexican food. I personally know Cathy Salinas so I feel a close connection with Ritos. Today I tried their guac tacos and rice for the 1st time and they were excellent. I finally tried something else other than the green burro enchilada style which is in my opinion the best. I like to get it mixed with beans. I would like to try the red chili someday soon. Keep on going Ritos, don't ever stop.



About us

Rito's was founded by Rosemary and Jose Salinas in June of 1977. Originally the building of a local Garfield Neighborhood market NEAR DOWNTOWN phoenix, 907 N 14th street serves as the place to find great tasting authentic Mexican food. Rosemary passed the reigns to her daughter Charlotte Hansen who has worked at Rito's for the better part of 35 years. Charlotte works along side her sister Cathy, her nieces, her daughters, her sons, and long time kitchen staff. 


 We are excited to have a rito's location in Surprise, Arizona!  We offer indoor seating and the same great tasting menu as the original. We also offer your favorite mexican cervezas! Truly excited to bring friendly faces and great tasting authentic Mexican food out west. 


Charlotte's brother Richie Salinas owns the Rito's Burritos in Glendale that is independently operated but still serves that great tasting authentic Mexican food. Please call Rito's Burritos for their hours of operation (623) 939-3001.
