“What happened?”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

We first visited Arturo's in May and June. It was our favorite place in town. We hadn't been in for two months. This visit, we were very disappointed. The food was terrible. We can't put our finger on what changed but everything tasted generic. It was not as hot, fresh or tasty as we were accustomed, even the corn tortillas were different. The service was as it always has been- somewhat lacking.

“Not Authentic but inexpensive”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

The prices are very reasonable and the portions are very large but the food is NOT authentic. As a mexican food lover; I know what I like. My husband and I ordered 2 Sangrias and I witnessed or server opening up a bottle of inexpensive liquor store Sangria.....warm! They didn't even try to jazz it up with cut fruit! Never again!!!

“Average at best -- NOT authentic in any way”
Reviewed July 16, 2010

This is your typical tex-mex restaurant. Nothing special, despite the local impression that it is really great. It is sad that this is the best New Bern can do in a state where the Hispanic population is so large. Chips are soggy. Margaritas are made with a nasty watered down mix. Ugh
