My wife and I decided to visit Arizona Bar for our anniversary. We've been there before and had a good experience. I find the menu limited only because i like pasta. I decided to try the ORICCETTI VERDURA. it is pasta with peppers, olives, lime and ricotta chesse. It does not come with any meat but I asked to have chicken added and they did.
My wife tried their POLLO QUESADILLA. It comes with lime green chilli, and herb marinated chicken.
The prices are a little high for what you get, $19 for pasta and $18 for quesadilla but, nevertheless, we enjoyed our meals. We decided to order banana split for dessert. As much as i like ice cream I would not order it again since it costs $10.
Our server was very pleasant and so was the bar staff.
Overall good experience but expensive.

After my last bad review (and a response from the manager offering me a dinner for two), I gave this place a second chance. I called in advance to remind them of the dinner for two offered me. I went with the email form the manager (no longer on staff) to prove I was not making the offer up! A reserved table was waiting for me and the staff was very attentive. The fajitas were tasty and the beer cold. I was comped my dinner (per the email promise) except the beer.

I am glad I gave the place a second chance and I might suggest you give it a chance when in Wellington.

Lovely Mexican pub type grub, not super fancy but totally hits the spot and great portion sizes. I had the nachos which were served in a really funky way with the tomato/beany topping cooked separately with grilled cheese on top so that it's not making the corn chips soggy! Great idea. Always a good atmosphere, great place to watch sport too!

On a recent stat in Wellington, on the first night we went to the Arizona Bar, we had been there before, I have the Chilli con carne again and it was just as good as always, the meat is like a stew with steak, very tasty and the guocamole is to die for, daughter had the fries and the chocalate cake for desert was amazing, will go there again, highly recommended

Came in foR A quIck fix of tastey tex mex at an old institution arizona. Good to See the fajitas still on the menU as so muCh has changed. Keen to keep with tradition I ordered the fajita triple combo which came on a Sizzling platter. Besides the slow service and inAttentiveness the food made up for it. Love the beer seLection. Sizeable portions and good value.
