The staff starts off great and friendly. Above average for Mexican food. Lots of authentic dishes. Atmosphere is good. Margaritas are especially good.

I have gone there about 3 times, all of my friends love it. I don't mind it, and I don't have a tastebud for Mexican food. But for me to be able to tolerate it, it is a good place to go if you enjoy Mexican Foods.

Moving from Texas this eatery has much to be desired. Enchiladas are store bought flour tortillas with minimal ingredients plus the red sauce is tasteless. Re-fried beans are running with the consistency of soup and the plate appearance is airline quality which was dropped prior to take off? Don't try to use their coupons from the newspaper - They accept them only with great stipulations and the staff will rudely protest any disagreements from customers. There are other Mexican restaurants in New Bern which offer higher quality and more authentic foods. If ever in Washington, NC search out the only Mexican restaurant in town (main drag) which offers true Mexican food and the best Mole sauce in the state. This is not a gripe session but I've tried Arturo's three times to ensure a fair write-up and the place is seriously terrible. Sorry New Bern!

The food is good and reasonably priced, and there is more variety on the menu than in some places. The service is fast and the ambience is good.

Found this on a return trip home from Harkers Island. Ate a late lunch. Absolutely one of the better Mexican restaurants we've been to (and we try them all.) Carne Asada , Mini Alambre, and pork chili verde. Save room for the best fried ice cream.
