Good Mexican food. Standard tex mex along with some authentic mexican food. They do not have Horchata though making it seem that only Americans eat there.

Local friends recommended Los Arcos for some good, authentic Mexican food. I can honestly say that I was impressed with everything about this place! It is an unassuming location, and my friends said, "Just look for the bars!" It is easy to find, and the bars on the windows do stand out. Don't worry about the bars - it is a nice, family restaurant. The service is great and friendly. The salsa is obviously homemade with lots of flavor. You know that salsa that is pretty warm, but you can't stop eating it - this is that salsa!!!! The food is amazing! I simply asked the waitress what was really, really good - she said the Chili Relleno. I had for the most part written off Chili Rellenos, as 95% of the time, I am disappointed in the results. They end up being watery, runny, not done, or just not done properly. They make hands down the BEST Chili Relleno I have ever had!!!! They know what they are doing and they do it right!!! The prices are incredibly reasonable, and I can say without hesitation that you will not be disappointed. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their food - fajitas, fajita nachos, and quesadillas. There is no possible way you will leave hungry, and you really won't want to miss this restaurant if you like REAL Mexican food. Los Arcos is officially on my must-eat list when I am in Abilene!

One of several favorite Mexican restaurants in Abilene. The Chili Rellenos are one of MY favorites, but the also have great refried beans, enchiladas, and chalupas!

Friends who live in Abilene are regulars here. It's no wonder! The food is fantastic! Queso is delicious, refried beans are great, enchiladas with salsa verde were super. I'd love to dine here again!

Tex-Mex piping hot with large teas and hot sauce not salsa. Have shredded chicken dishes for the weight conscious in your group. Home made chips. Lots of cheese on the plates. Great guacamole.
