Authentic Food

Wonderful chicken enchiladas. They bring out pico and it has a lot of flavor. I recommend bottled drinks only since it is a border town. The restaurant is nice inside and they really wait on you and are friendly!

Had not been to Arturo's for more than ten years but nothing has changed. I mean that in the most positive way. The food is wonderful, the service impeccable and the margaritas superb. Be careful though since drinks come two for one. Texas friends eat here on a regular basis. If you have not had quail give it try here.

My family has been enjoying Arturo's for over 50 years. We've never been disappointed in the food or service. Spending a few hours shopping with a stop for a cerveza or a margarita followed by a delicious meal is hard to beat! The convenience of leaving your car while you visit the shops and dine at Arturo's is an added... More

Great service. From waiters who have been there over thirty years., especially Lalo, the best waiter there. You will be treated like you are eating in a country club. Anything you want, they have. The new location in Weslaco, doesn't come close, go to progreso location, skip weslaco.

I really can find much to complain about at Arturo's. It's actually boring to eat here. While the place is clean service is fast, but not real friendly. The food is okay. When you got to Mexico is this really what you are looking for? You can stay home and go to a chain restaurant and get the same level... More

We live north of Progresso about 2 hours away and visit often. We would eat nowhere else but Arturo's. We have eaten there for over 10 years (not in one sitting, mind you). Food, drinks, entertainment (somewhat limited) are all excellent. The wait staff is second to none, particularly Juan who has been "our" waiter for many years. Another plus... More

Another one of the places that my mom and dad used to eat at. I must admit it was a while before i had eaten here again, and i must say that it was very good. Had the cheese enchiladas, had rice and beans. Also had the cheese nachos for an appetizer and let me tell those were the best... More

My wife and I ate there Sunday and the late lunch was absolutely wonderful. Everything from the chips, the salsa, the enchiladas, tamales, rice, beans, guacamole, fries, bollilos was so fresh. The waiter staff clad in their suits did a superb job attending to our needs.I know of no restaurant this side of San San Antonio that has such great... More

Living in the Rio Grande Valley for 10 years and returning as visitors often over the past 3, we would never consider patronizing another restaurant in Progreso. We have tried all of them in Progreso at one time or another and we have selected Arturo's for cleanliness, attentiveness by servers and their assistants, menu range, price, and not least, Linen...
