Rate MINUS 10. We WERE frequent loyal customers. Ordered shrimp fajitas for one. Husband ordered another entree waited 45 minutes for our food. I said this looks like fajitas for 2 instead of for 1 like I ordered. Waitress said OMG don't touch it. Left to return 10 minutes later. She said I have to take it back and make... More

I used to love this restaurant until I got food poisoning from the chicken fajitas. The person I was dining with had a portion of my meal and got proportionally sick as well. It looked like the chicken was boiled and then thrown on the grill to make grill marks. Yuck yuck yuck...I'll never go back

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

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 spot-on. My wife and... 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
