“Good food, service, live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Owners have done a fine job replicating their Progresso MX restaurant in a safer place. Arturo's is on our short list of best Valley restaurants. We like the food (nachos, pico de gallo, and variety of enchiladas and tacos), margaritas, service, and live music on Thursday and Friday. Atmosphere in an old house is OK, but we understand the owners are seeking a larger, more convenient place near Hwy 83. Prices are a tad high for Tex-Mex, but worth it.

I grew up in the Weslaco area and remember going to eat at Arturos in Nuevo Progreso, the Weslaco location has the great food and service I remember!

“Just like we remebered it in Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

My wife and I used to dine at their location across the border in Nuevo Progreso. She has been a customer there since the '60s. I have been a customer since the late '70s.

I ordered the Tampiquena, as always. It was magnificent, just as I remebered from years past. Everyone else's food was perfect too. The margaritas were also prepared the same way they were years ago: excellent.

The service was top-notch. The chips and salsa were the same as always: none better. The avocado pico de gallo is something they have prepared for decades. It was also perfect, but the corn tortillas were not quite as soft as the ones from Mexico.

This place is way above average. The owner came to our table and thanked us for being there. What more could you ask for?

“Attentive owners, outstanding mole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

Eaten here a coupe times and it is by far one of the best mexican restaurants in the valley. Would much rather visit in in Progresso but those days are over. Im glad they opened a place state side. Just need to adjust the price on the Cabrito.
