We have visited Dos Arcos several times and have always been pleased with both the service and the quality of the food. They do it right. If you want to get closer to authentic, just ask and they will add a bit more heat for you.

The Wait staff is very friendly and quick to notice when you need anything, i.e. drinks, chips, etc. Prices are reasonable and food is good.

This is the best place to go when you want some Mexican. Family favorite. The price is very reasonable.

This was our 3rd year in a row and not disappointed. We ate 3x within a week. We tried a couple new items this time. All were very good! We recommend the beans- really good, enchilada verdes, and the carne asada. Always good service. Good prices too! We will be back!

I came not expecting much other than Americanized Mexican food but quickly found out if you talke with the staff (this is a family owned place) you can get a more authentic and spicy fare. I have pork tacos and they were very tasty. Lots of cilantro which means a great flavor. Will be back.

Great food, good prices. Always love going there for lunch. You're served chips and salsa when seated to start off your meal.

Kind of out of the way from everything else and the main part of town, but I was pleasantly surprised by the food. It is very good and I enjoyed the service.
