Just to be clear, this review is for the new location in front of the mall. Right from the beginning it was bad. Tried to seat my wife and I right next to the kitchen in/out door, asked to sit somewhere else and received "the look". Sat down to order and menu is a joke as was the food. Chips... More

2nd visit to restaurant, wouldn't waste my time next time. Average food and overpriced. Food Luke warm. Bad sign when I see buffet line set up up front. Nice bldg. Seating ok but not too comfortable. Predict restuarant will not last long.

Had to wait in line to get seated. Seemed like each group to be seated took 5 minutes. Waited quite a while for someone to take drink order. Asked for 1800 Gold Margarita, got house tequila of poor quality. Food was bland. My enchiladas were so hard I could not cut shell. Will not return.

We just got done eating here. The food was horrible but the building is nice. Prices are ridiculous! I will not come back. Our waiter was great but that was all.

Arrived around 9 and asked waiter what tume they closed and if the kitchen was still serving. We were advised all was good and order anythung we wanted. Bad mistake. Cold Food. Lousy Service. Dont let the new building lure you in. I'm sure we could have had better mexican out if the frozen food section of the 7 ~11.

Stopped by dinner the other night. I was quickly seated and waited on. Nice basket of warm chips came to the table pretty quickly I had a vegetarian combo. Bean Taco, Cheese quesadillo and a bean tostada. It came with rice and beans. Pretty good deal for $8.00

I would like to start off this review saying that Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant has some of the best Mexican food I've had. They have a bar from 11:00am - 2:00pm. It is good value, with my personal favorite being the beef quesadilla, or the chi-Lakila. The waiters their all very nice, and are always ready to help. I would... More

We stopped with friends. The food was pretty good and the service was decent. Wasn't the best Mexican I have had, but far from the worse.

Arroz Con Pollo is the best on the menu and I can't find it better anywhere. They have just built a new resturant.
