we saw this restaurant as having good reviews. I eat a lot of latin food and I was not impressed. I would NOT recommend the polla a la (peanut) It was not very tasty and I didn't like their rice at all. Tasted like cardboard. The refried beans were ok. Service was extremely slow. I did however enjoy the two... More

I've been here twice before when visiting the Springs. This place is really great, huge portions, delicious food. Refried beans are excellent. Not to miss, looks sketchy, but don't be afraid!!!!

Decided to do a friend's birthday here instead of somewhere more formal. The staff busted their tails to get a large group all seated and brought us all hot meals at the same time. I can't think of anyone in the business who works harder. Food was great!

We moved here twelve years ago from New Mexico, and searched for good Mexican food for a long time. Arceo's is our fave. Consider the carne asada burrito. Like this place a lot.

I've been coming here for 10 years and its a family favorite. Good authentic Mexican drinks like horchata. They give you a couple of salsas and fresh chips while you order. The cheese enchiladas with onions are the best. Service is courteous and food comes out fast. Great place if you have kids or for a quick lunch. They also... More

Very wide reaching menu - if you have ever heard about it - it is on the menu. Large portions and excellent preparation and presentation. Only downer is it is between two creepy motels. Interior décor is new but a little too bizarre for my taste, but it is new, clean and nice. .

The exterior leaves quite a bit to be desired, cracked cement sidewalks, poorly maintained landscaping, and a building in need of some TLC, but once inside a rainbow of color hits you like Dorothy experienced when exiting her house for there first time in the Land of Oz. At $2.75, the guacamole is excellent and a terrific value when compared... More

Ball park cheese dip and tomato sauce with onion and peppers for salsa. We came based on trip advisor reviews. I felt I should share to help someone else avoid the same mistake. 8/30/14.
