They can accomadate large groups. Evening entertainment compliments the experience. The breakfast buffet is outstanding something for everyone. If you are staying at the resort there is no reason...

I absolutely LOVE dining at Rita's Kitchen. The food never fails! The breakfast buffet is just fantastic. Dining outside is a given for me personally but there is indoor seating available. Dinner too is great, again I choose outside. There is often entertainment and the food is fantastic! The margaritas are amazing!!!!

The menu had a number of great-sounding items, and an extensive cocktail menu and wine list. Our waitress was very helpful when we had questions about selecting our dinners. We really enjoyed the items we ordered.... More

Rita's is a fabulous and consistently excellent in regard to food, beverage, ambiance and service. The Happy Hour is one of the best - beats El Chorro hands down. Beautiful patio and the Rita Rita margarita is phenomenal.

Delicious food, great atmosphere dining on outdoor patio listening to live music, and friendly service. The red pasilla chicken enchiladas were fantastic! Also, over the course of our stay we had the chicken quesadilla, hamburger, Rita's chop salad,... More

I attended a group dinner at Rita's Kitchen during a conference. The service was excellent, and the restaurant itself had a nice ambience and ample seating. Great convenient dining option if you are staying at the hotel.
