Best steak or Mexican in Riverside area?

Suggestions needed for a Riverside region birthday dinner. Casual or nicer joints all considered... chow (as always) is the first consideration. Wish me luck. Thanks in advance.

  1. Duane's in the Mission Inn is supposed to be a high end steak house. In the same area is Mario's Italian which is well known in the area. Never been to either, so I can't say yea or nay to either one.

    1. Anchos is good for Mexican. It is near the Tyler Mall. Also, Las Campanas at the Mission Inn is pretty good.

        I agree, Anchos is where the big cheeses like to go at my workplace for business lunches. I had steak tacos there, and I swear it was the best steak as an ingredient I'd ever had. It was delicious and tender, I almost wanted to take some home. The steak was juicy and dripping, cooked medium rare and pinkish on the insides of each cooked rectangle of meat. Plus the lunch was a good value for the delicious food, coming with beans and rice. Salsa and chips were fresh and delicious as well.
