After reading the reviews I decided to try this place on a Saturday night. Wow how disappointing. Actually I didn't even want a to go box for my good that I barely touched. Let's see where to start , it's a dive but not even clean. It is busy here however not worth sticking around for. The salsa is sketchy... More

This place looks like a dive, but the food was good. The pico looked strange but tasted delicious. We had steak ranchero and chicken ranchero and both were very good. Service was a bit slow but we were there at 1230 so that's to be expected.

Went last night and it was really bad. Place smelled like urine. Should have been smart enough to leave then. Salsa not great. Then the meals we had were both bad bad.

The complimentary chips and salsa & pico were delicious. The #5 combination plate with 2 enchiladas, 1 tostada, rice & beans was very generous portion & delicious. My husbsnd had 3 crispy tacos with rice & beans and it was also delicious. Had to try the sopapillas with honey & whipped cream and they were the best we've ever had!... More

Wanted some quality Mexican food and read good reviews about this place. The location is a bit out of the way in a sort of sketchy part of town. We witnessed some shady activity in the parking lot to the north. It was early so we decided to stay, but park on the south side of the building and lock... More

Read the reviews on Trip Advisor so we thought we would give it a shot. Service was outstanding... Almost too fast! It was very good and prices were very reasonable. My son said the Chalupas were very good, I would have liked more sauce on my Enchiladas Rancheras.

We were recently visiting Colorado Springs and decided to have Mexican cuisine for dinner. Then we happened to see Arceo's. We gave it a try, and what a treat/surprise! Arceo's has a menu that takes several minutes to read. We were a party of four and each had a different selection. The ingredients are amazing and the taste is phenomenal.... More

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
