Our family loved arturos. The service was excellent, the waiters were incredible attentive. The food is excellent, fresh ingredients. No one was disappointed. It is pricer then some of the other choices but so worth it.

We always stop in here for lunch when we go to Progresso. The waiters are always very professional and they have white linens on the tables. We have never had a bad meal here. There were four of us and everyone got something different.

Had dinner here on our first trip to Progresso. The food was outstanding as was the service. The pico de gallo was superb and the margaritas sub”lime”. We had chateaubriand cooked at the table, and other than too much gravy, it was well prepared. I...More

When you visit the Rio Grande Valley you really need to treat yourself to lunch at Arturo's restaurant. Cross the International Bridge into Progreso and walk a couple of blocks; it's on the left hand side. From the moment you walk in everything will be...More
