In a restaurant decorated with festively warm colors and grainy wooden tables, La Rivera aims to summon the cuisine and atmosphere of a Mexican street fair. Each day, the eatery's kitchen dishes out their specialty—sizzling fajitas made with steak, shrimp, or chicken, accompanied by rice, beans, sautéed onions, and peppers. Plates of carne asada arrive fresh from the grill coated in sauce, with tortillas for sopping up every last morsel. Chiles rellenos harbor beef or cheese, and huge burritos hide treasure troves of rice, beans, veggies, and a slightly tinier burrito.
