Very Satisfied – Recently a large group(20+) of my friends and I visited El Arroyo. It was such a pleasant experience, we are planning to make it a weekly venture. The drinks were cold, food was excellent and the service was amazing. Not many restaurants can accommodate such a large party with such great service and the fact that we gave them no notice we were coming in makes it even more outstanding.
Very hospitable – El Arroyo agreed to be our location for our networking function. They have been extremely hospitable, the price is very reasonable, and the food is great. A++++
Food and Service a Bust! – We came here with high hopes and left feeling very disappointed. Our waiter was awful -- it took us about 15 minutes and a bowl of tortillas chips to even receive water. The food was low quality and the portions were small. My husband didn't even receive the correct food. My choice, Chicken Burrito, was listed as a "Chef's Favorite" on the menu and it was glorified slop.
We will not be returning and would advise anyone looking for good tex-mex to go somewhere else.
visiting from houston – we ate at this restaurant based on the citysearch rating of 8.9...needless to say we had a bad experience. the waiter was non existent. the food quantity was pathetic. the margarita's were weak. we had two parties in our party of 8 order fajitas for two...although the price was low, the quantity was VERY low. i had 8 slim pieces of fajita meat w/ my meal. we did complain and they brought out more meat. we couldn't believe that they expected us to eat such a small amount of food...the manager was understanding though. i wouldn't recommend this restaurant to people though.
Their new patio is awesome. Springtime will be great having margaritas under the stars. We go every Thursday for .99 Margaritas. Can't beat it.
Good Value, Good Food – I came during the early afternoon and the service was fast and polite. One of my friends and I had the enchiladas poblanas. They were great and the portions were huge. My other friend had the steak burrito dinner and liked it quite a bit.
I definitely recommend this place.
Not my choice for TexMex – My experience would have been MUCH more pleasant except the bar allows smoking. All that divides the bar and the restaurant is a 3/4 height wall. I don't care if you smoke, but it's really gross when I'm eating!
The food at best was mediocre. I won't return.
Great deal for a great meal! – Muy delicioso! Try the queso mixo appetizer- So good!! Margarita Martini was very popular too!
Quantity not Quality – A good overall choice for the dollor. The wait is short and the salsa is decent. They give you plenty of food (multiple plates), but the quality of the meat is very low. This place is also cheap, so you do get what you pay for. A diffenent quantity not quality place.
Check Plus – I came here on a Friday night with my family. The wait was not too bad, esp. since you can have drinks in the bar. Once seated, the service was good, not spectacular. But given that it was Friday night, it was understandable. Our food came out very quickly and was exactly what we wanted. I recommend the Spinach Queso and the Mixed Fajitas. If you are looking for margaritas, this is the place. They have just about every flavor you can think of.
