I wanted Mexican food, so we followed your advice to try Acero's. I should have paid attention to the reviews about large portions. We had the Molcagete Camarones (shrimp soup in a hot "lava" bowl), Pozole (soup with pork - available only on weekends), and I couldn't resist ordering the Tostada de Seviche (halibut). We could have split one of... More

I am local to Colorado Springs. I go their S. Nevada Ave location. The service is excellent, the portion sizes are large and it is locally owned. This is true Mexican food in a not so great part of town.

Yummy! Wanted some real mexican food and this hit the spot! Used Plano chillies in the rellano and it was very good! The only thing is the green chillie sauce had meat in it and I am not a fan of that.

Arceo's serves terrific Mexican food at a more-than-reasonable price in what appears to be a converted Pizza Hut building. I enjoyed two spinach enchiladas with beans and rice, and a great $5 margarita. My husband couldn't stop raving about his arroz con camarones (shrimp with veggies on rice). For dessert, we shared flan. For food and service Arceo's deserves five... More

This was rated pretty high on trip advisor and it was one of the only Mexican restaurants we could find that was open on a Sunday. The salsa was fresh and tasty. The service was very friendly and efficient. We never went without drinks or chips/salsa. Prices were very reasonable.

Four of us enjoyed various items. Everything was fresh, good and hot. The service was friendly and prompt. It's a small place, but it doesn't matter. It's not loud and you can speak in a normal voice. I've eaten here a few times and it doesn't disappoint.
