After we were seated, we waited for awhile before a waitress brought us chips and salsa and took our order. I asked if the beans are vegetarian. She indicated that they are not. But they do have whole beans, which I asked for. My guacamole tostadas came with the whole beans on the side, but the refried (non-vegetarian) beans on... More

I may be a bit biased but I have been eating at Arroyo's restaurant since 1960. I was five the first time I ate at the downtown location. The beef burritos are wonderful. The tortillas hand made and warm when served. The current location provides a nice venue and there are no franchises in sight. Just flavorful authentic food.

Heard some good and bad reviews, went to try it. Way to overpriced for mexican food, and kind of run down. If they charge that much, they should as t least fix the place. The food was ok but I'll stick to my normal spots. It's an ok place if you want mexican food.

I use to eat at the old downtown Arroyo's in 1971 and the food was some of the best in town. When they moved to the current location it seemed the food lost it's flavor. Two days ago we decided to give it another chance, since we just moved a few blocks away. My "go to" plate is always the... More

This is a great place to eat. It looks over a small lake and the restaurant are is top notch. The food is fantastic. I enjoyed their Shrimp in garlic sauce and the wife had the chimichunga. Both were excellent as was the service. The price was very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Very nice experience with very tasty food and excellent service. I'll definitely visit again based upon my first experience. I'd never had Chili Verde in a red sauce before, but it was quite good.

We visited on Sunday evening - after 7:30 pm. They were not busy but we had to wait for service. The salsa was good so we thought ... great meal to come. We were disappointed. I ordered chicken fajitas - you cannot miss. But they did. The vegetables were very undercooked. No caramelization - the chicken was pale - done... More
