I have been there for lunch many times, at the old and new location and for some reason they seem to run out of thousands island salad dressing. I have brought this to their attention several times and it doesn't seem to register or they don't care. The last time I went (6-5-16) I talked to four people before I... More

First we stood at the area to be seated forever and finally someone comes and seats us, no greeting or anything. The lady at the register saw us and the line behind us when she wasn't busy and never said someone will be with you or anything. The salad bar was a mess (not fond of them anyway) and we... More

We've driven past this location and each time thought we should stop. Yesterday, we took the bait. Parking was ample, the architecture and outside seating authentic and the menu enticing. The experience stalled-out there. We had the pollo fundido, that had thin pieces of flattened chicken covered with a colorful but pasty glop with a side of tasteless rice. A... More

They have quite a few options. Loved their lunch buffet! $7.99 and the service was great, we just were a bit lost since it was our first time but the server explained how it works.

Have been here twice. First time was after the new location opened. They forgot to update the parking lot. Food was so-so. Prices are high for what it is. They need to pay for that new building somehow. Service was sufficient. Very loud and someone let their child scream and yell thru our entire visit. Our waitress noticed but did... More

Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant is a lovely inside and outside but the food is the all-star. We enjoyed the Sunday lunch buffet with family and also the dinner menu several times. We were never disappointed. Highly recommended.

I have eaten here many times at the old location, and went in to try the new location they moved to. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, mixed with modern. My friends and I sat in a booth and were helped right away. The food took a little time to arrive, but not overly long, and was absolutely delicious. The... More

My husband and I stopped in to this little place, we were so happy we did! We happened upon their lunch buffet. The selections were fresh and hot. It's not the cutest spot, but the food and drinks are worth stopping for.... (Especially the peach margaritas!) We will definitely will visit again.

Terrible food. Poor service. The location on hwy 321 however is the best in town !!! Super fast service and the absolute best quality of food. Outside and inside needs updating but food definitely makes up for it.
