La Ribera Mexican Restaurant has opened at 685 E. Arlington Blvd., on the corner of Arlington and Red Banks Road in Arlington Village. It’s the space that most recently housed Chrissy’s Steaks and Oyster Bar.
Owner Hector Onate is one of the original partners who opened Greenville’s Mazatlan restaurant. He left that restaurant partnership some years ago and has opened restaurants throughout eastern North Carolina, including La Paz Mexican Restaurant in Goldsboro.
Although the name La Ribera refers to the ocean surf, the restaurant specializes in authentic Mexican food. Patrons may make their own combination dinners with choices including tacos, enchiladas, burritos, tamales, chile rellenos, chalupas, tostadas and quesadillas with soup or salad or side dishes. “Grilled combination” dinners, with steak or chicken sauteed on a griddle, also are offered. One twist: patrons may create their own platters by selecting a side dish from a list that includes Mexican fried rice, Mexican white rice, refried beans, steamed vegetables, sauteed spinach, fries and Mexican mashed potatoes. Combination dinners range in price from $6.89-$9.25.
