A Lot of Positives

We went to Los Arcos based on a friend's recommendation. She was dead-on right. Most Mexican places great you with chips and 1 or 2 small things of salsa - not Los Arcos. They gave us a sizable amount of delicious sauce and individual cups for all of us pour our sauce into. The food was... read more

My family went to this restaurant many many times. My twins were newborns or very young infants not on solid food. Our group, not counting the twins (they remained in their stroller every time we went & did not take up any chairs), consisted of 4 eating adults and 1 6-year old child. We would eat, tip very well &... More

The food was good and the restaurant was clean but nothing spectacular. The salsa was hot and spicy but the food itself was bland. The service was okay. It was not too far from our hotel and the prices were very reasonable.

The menu is plentiful enough to fit whatever you want if you want something more than the basics. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was a 4 outta 5. You can get a Mexican beer to go with your meal if you so desire and the atmosphere is a little mediocre but it was clean.I did like the... More

We stopped in Abliene on the long drive from Dallas to Midland, and needed a place to get a good lunch. Los Arcos fit the bill perfectly. They give you a big container of salsa with individual bowls to pour yours into, and delicious chips to eat with them. It was a flavorful, spicy salsa that is making my mouth... More

I love eating at Los Arcos, as they offer a great value. The portions are large and the food is delicious. If you like really good Mexican food, check this place out. On our last trip there, our waiter was very attentive and took great care of us. My family and friends all like eating at Los Arcos.

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!
