They are remodeling and expanding so that means they are getting popular. They bring chips and salsa to you immediately. They have several lunch specials that are very affordable. My favorite is a small cheese dip and a small guacamole they are very affordable and very delicious. My husband enjoys fajitas and they do a good job with them there.... More

The facility in Kannapolis is being updated. The food is really good although sometimes the portions are inconsistent as far as the size or ingredients.

We have visited Los Arcos about 5 times in the past month. The last time (and it will BE the last time) we were sat in the very back in an old wobbly booth. Our server took our order. Brought chips and drinks. Someone else brought our food. He never came back to check on us. I saw him waiting... More

My wife and I stopped at Los Arcos for dinner while driving home along I-85. Overall, we had a very nice dining experience. Our server was very friendly and took great care of us. Service was fast, which we appreciated since we still had a couple more hours to drive home. We split the chicken fajitas for two and they... More

I live in the area and for years loved Los Arcos mainly because it was the first and only real Mexican restaurant in town. I now only go there when invited by friends. The menu is large but limited. An example, they only offer refried beans whereas other Mexican restaurants in the area also offer a choice of black beans,... More

This is pretty much just your average low priced Mexican restaurant. Standard menu..fast service. Our only complaint would be that two different tables of customers were screaming insults at each other across the dining room with NO intervention from staff or management! If you just want some fast/cheap Mexican food, nothing special in any way, this is the place for... More

This is the place we go for great Mexican food. I have been going here since they first opened and have always enjoyed going back. The fresh chips and salsa is some of the best I have had, and a great start to a really good meal just don't eat so many that you ruin your appetite before your meal... More

The restaurant is clean and the wait staff very friendly. I think I know the reason the place is so clean...there were no spices used in the buffet food, not even a pinch of salt. Nothing to spill during prep! Everything tasted the same! Even the basket of chips was stale.The salsa was spicy and maybe that was to give... More

The place looked a bit rundown with a broken glass front window and aged door. However once inside the service was friendly and the food was tasty. The chicken burrito hit the spot for me!
