The motel clerk where we stayed recommended two Mexican restaurants, he said one was pricey, but worth it ( don't remember the name of that one, but the worth it was his opinion), the other one was Los Arroyos and he said the food was good. The food was better than good! I wanted to go back again, but we were there for a wedding and didn't have the time to go back. The service was good, it is small, but we didn't have a problem getting a place to sit.

Los Arroyos catered a wedding which we attended in Santa Barbara, and we could not have enjoyed it more. As we were traveling from far away, we contacted the staff ahead of time to be sure that there would be something for our kids to eat, as they have severe food allergies. Aurielle responded to my email immediately, and we were reassured that there was plenty of dairy-egg-nut-free food available. She went over the entire catering menu, letting me know what would be safe and what would not be. This is so important!
At the wedding, the staff from Los Arroyos was professional and friendly and helpful. They were fantastic! Best of all, my kids LOVED the food, and they enjoyed it all the more because they were confident that it would be safe for them.
They weren't the only ones. All of the guests at our table were happy with the meal; the ingredients were so fresh...and they were grilling the meats and veggies right outside, so nothing was dry or lukewarm. Terrific service, terrific meal!

Excellent food, homemade corn tortillas, fresh ingredients. A bit noisy and crowded at lunch. Recommended.

After reading the reviews I was looking forward to eating here. However, my food was really bland and not at all tasty or spicy, neither were the 'spicy' sauces. Really disappointing. The service was good though.

From the Margaritas...to the quesadillas.... to the fish tacos, this authentic Mexican restaurant provides a terrific sidewalk experience with a friendly and efficient wait staff.
