“Pretty Good Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

They have a good selection on their menu and have fast service and also serve alcoholic beverages. The salsa is excellent with their chips and are complimentary as most Mexican restaurants do this now.

“Worst Mexican Food I've EVER eaten!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2008

I love Mexican food and have eaten tons of it all over TX, CA, NM and more. We were delighted to find another branch of Los Arcoiros in West Jefferson after having eaten at the one in Boone a few times (fairly decent food and pretty decent for NC, although they have no idea what a chile relleno is. It's supposed to be made from a pablano pepper, guys). Although this restaurant shares a name with the one in Boone, the food is just awful. It was the number one, worst Mexican food I have ever eaten out of maybe a thousand meals. Enchiladas, normally my favorite, had little inside them, came covered in a red sauce that was closer to spaghetti sauce than a Mexican topping, the tortilla was tough (never saw that before), the salsa had no heat and no cumin which is required in Mexican food, they charge extra for a second bowl of chips and salsa (the chips were the only edible thing on the table), likewise a cup of sliced jalapenos all of which are traditionally free, and the server could speak virtually no English. I was hungry or I would have left without eating it and I'll normally eat ANYTHING. Give this place a WIDE berth!

“Say hola to good food at...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2008

Say hola to good food at great prices! Los Arcoiris is a favorite of the locals and the best Mexican around. Ask for the savoias and pico de gallo as an appetizer. Genaro and his boys are friendly and fun and you'll always leave happy and full, with plenty of money left in your wallet.
