Best Mexican Restaurant? How about Best RESTAURANT – Every place in town could learn a lesson from these guys. Although it is busy at lunch, you are always seated immediately, greeted and given chips and salsa. Your food comes quick and is delicious and inexpensive. A great value.
This is the real deal – I grew up in southern California. Mexican food was a part of our daily experience. Real Mexican food, not "Tex Mex" or some other make-believe type. I've been in Michigan for almost 20 years now, and El Arriero is the ONLY Mexican Food restaurant I have found that serves authentic Mexican food!
From the salsa to the refrietos it's the real deal. Have the Caldo de Pollo and Chili Colorado or Verde... you won't find it anywhere else in Grand Rapids like this!
Best Mexican Food – This other day I saw this comment of a person that went to El Arriero and got sick, I remember that on that same day I went he said he got sick because of the food and I don't think it was because of that because if it was the food I would have gotten sick too and I didn't!! He is just RACIST because that food is the best!!!!!!!
Great Authentic Mexican & Awesome Margaritas – It's not easy to find a Mexican restaurant of this caliber in Grand Rapids. Location on 28th St. is perfect when you are out shopping or if you need to do a business lunch or dinner. I have never been disapointed. if you haven't been you should definitely try this place. Great!
Wonderful food – Great food surprisingly low prices and very friendly service keeps me coming back. The owner is very hands on and makes sure the quality is always great.
Authentic Mexican – I have been eating here for about 4 yrs. It is what I think is authentic compared to what I have eaten in Mexico. If you like Taco Bell... you dont' know what Mexican food is.
Servers are friendly and enjoy my attempt at speaking Spanish. It is very clean and the salsa is the best!
Best Mexican Food – This is the best Mexican food ever the prices are great and the service is always the best. All the workers are friendly they always smile and they always wait and dont care how long you take to order. The food is so great i want to go everyday. If you great mexican food then you should go to El Arriero
Hands down best Mexican place in Grand Rapids – This is, without a doubt, the best Mexican place in Grand Rapids. The food is fantastic, the prices are very reasonable, the staff are friendly and personable and service time is VERY quick. I would recommend this place to anyone! Definitely try the "Quesadilla Suprema"--it's fantastic!
Yummy quesadillas...best I've ever had! – I have been going to this place for the past few years, and I absolutely love it! The staff here are friendly, the food is inexpensive and exceptional! I recently moved out to Colorado and must say that I have searched and searched for a place that makes chicken quesadillas the way they do here! I will definitely be stopping by when I return home for a visit in a few weeks!
Wonderful food, reasonably priced, and waiters who can easily become friends. – I've only been to this restaurant one time but I'll be back. The service was fantastic and the waiter went overboard to be helpful. We had three children with us who really made a mess and the waiter discouraged me from trying to keep it clean. The food was great but the chips and salsa which were free I believe were the best I ever had at any restaurant. If you're looking for the Mexican hat dance you're not going to find it here. But if you are just looking to kick back and enjoy a fun evening with friends and family, good food (reasonably priced) and not have to worry about the kids mess, you've got the right spot. All restaurants have their own personality, personally, this is the kind I like.
