Great find

Stopped in for a quick bite and to see if you could really have good Mexican food on the East Coast. Was pleasantly surprised by the awesome little taco bar we had for lunch. They had all kinds of goodies including ground beef, fajitas, chicken and pineapple, and a couple other options. The service... read more

On the surface, this is the typical authentic Mexican Restaurant you find around western PA. But there are just a few special things that makes this restaurant stand out among the others. First, their "all day, every day" margarita special (2.49) is always nice. Second, they have very friendly staff. The first time I visited the host said "I'm so... More

We have been here two times now, and both times it has been awful. We will never be back. First of all, the first time we visited (we are from out of town), they brought me the wrong order. Then, after asking them to bring me the correct order, I had to wait while my three boys, and my husband... More

Great food, outstanding service!! I had been craving Mexican food for days and saw this restaurant had good reviews. My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch. The large menu had me a little worried, but the food was so delicious!!! I had the spinach enchiladas and they were fabulous. The chips and salsa were great. I loved... More

I used to live in Arizona and in central Florida, so I grew accustomed to good Mexican food. This place is great. I wanted to try about half the menu. I ended up with Fajitas and a cheese quesadilla. Food was incredibly cheap as well.

Great authentic Mexican food. Must better than some of the others in the Shenango Valley. I'm always a fan of the burritos, more than enough food to leave full.

If you're looking for non-chain Mexican, this is a good choice. The salsa that arrives first is very fresh and flavorful -- I wound up putting it on some of my main course as well. The cheese enchilada was not greasy at all, and the beans didn't make the tortillas soggy, either of which can be a hazard when eating... More

Fast service, friendly wait staff and the food was very good. Relaxed atmosphere with a little patio for summer dining.

By far the best Mexican food in the area, chain or privately owned. It's my favorite place to eat - I've lost track of how many times I've been there and it's never disappointed. Generous portions, all cooked to order, and attentive staff. Can't wait to try the new lunch buffet!!

Our family frequents El Arriero more than just about any other restaurant in the area. The food, service and prices are all good. They recently began a new lunch buffet every day from 11AM-3PM for only $6.99. The buffet has plenty of good food at a great price. Some of our favorites are the California Burrito, tacos carne asada, the... More
