The menu covers everything from enchiladas to chile verde...but what I always go for is the deep fried quesadilla.
Order it with chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp...they take the raw dough, stuff it with meat and cheese, and then deep fry...it's not greasy, but crispy instead and covered with sauce.
I don't want to know the calories, but it is one of life's great pleasures.
On the weekends, mariachis play music up and down the aisle.

Heard so many good things about it but for me there was nothing special about it. The service was less than average and if you like a soda with your meal, I think they charge for refills because I sat there high and dry for the last part of my dinner. Must of been a bad night.

This restaurant is located in an area of offices. It overlooks Quail Lake and has great food. The brothers Arroyo use the same recipes their mother and probably their grandmother used at home. Authentic home cooked mexican food. Great variety.
The bar is always energized, and sometimes there is live music.
The only down side is sometimes parking is difficult as it fills up for dinner.

Good Mexican food. A little out of the way. A little pricey for Mexican food. It is located off March Lane, in the Quail lakes ares, on the water. Nice view during the day

Arroyo's serves classic Mexican food in a splendid lakeside location at a modest price. Hosts Rick and Mario continue a family tradition. Chefs are consistent. Service is quick and cheerful. Their cheese enchiladas, rice, beans and albondigas soup are terrific. Arroyo's is our default restaurant; we are regulars at this Stockton traditional eatery.
