I'm a Latina so I naturally have very high expectations. I compare everything to Grandmas cooking which is why I chose this place. The salsa was incredible and I absolutely loved it. I had the fajitas which were at a great price for the weekend special. They were nice and tender and for once I actually liked the rice. It... More

This place is the real deal! Great TexMex food. Better than any chain out there. The salsa is fantastic and ya get your own cup so double dip all ya want. Try the Two and Two with soft corn tacos

Had the chili relleno...reminds me of my grandma's cooking. It is always good. Chips are warm and salsa is soooo good. Be careful not to fill up on chips and salsa. This is NOT a bad side of town. Great prices. Nice atmosphere. Great service. Every time I come to town, we eat here. My family eats here regularly.

The Chili Rellenos was delicious, but the salsa is the best I've ever had! Come hungry--you won't be able to resist the salsa and chips, yet the food is so good, you won't want to leave a single bite!

Love the queso fundito as an appetizer and the fajitas are always wonderful. I have eaten here for years and they have yet to disappoint. If you are looking for quality food at a good price, you just found it.

Not one of my favorites and on the bad side of town. Food is ok but not worth the drive if you live n the Southside of town. Keep giving it a try but never find something I really like.

I would not advise going here. I have friends who love it but every time I go with them there I am sick to my stomach for the next few days

The culinary curse of Abilene continues with yet another restaurant that does not know how to cook, let alone cook "Authentic Mexican Cuisine". After living in Abilene for 6 years, I have yet to find a non chain restaurant that delivers great cuisine. After reading lots of great reviews about the great Mexican food at Los Arcos, I decided to... More

We had beef tacos and chile rellenos. They provided ample food at a good price. What I didn't like was that the plexiglass on the table was warped and raised up in the corner. Also, the artwork was a bit strange for a Mexican restaurant. However, the place was clean and this completely satisfied me. What I liked the best... More

Yummy! We had a very late lunch here - and every thing was delicious! My mom got the guacamole enchiladas and I had the Blanco enchiladas - and we shared with each other. The coolness of the guacamole was offset with a spicy red sauce and the blano (white) enchiladas were not super spicy, but every bite was delicious! Even... More
