Came to restaurant looking for Mexican Food but this is more of a Tex Mex type of food. For example, no tacos al pastor or tacos in corn tortillas. The food we ordered was average for their type of food and the prices were okay.

You enter and are immediately seated by any one of very polite servers. Chips and very good salsa comes in short order along with a menu. Many different combinations and pre set meals are available. The cheese steak is very good as well as everything...More

This place is my favorite when ever I want to have some Mexican food. Orchata is my favorite non alcoholic drink....to bad they serve it only on weekend days.

Great Mexican place. Food and Drinks are awesome. Everything we had was great from the Tortilla Chips and Salsa to the entrees. Lots of locals and crowded so try this place out. Beer and mixed drinks are a must.

I had the Hawaiian Fajitas. There is supposed to be chicken, steak and bacon in it along with veggies and pineapple. I had only a few very thin pieces of meat and about one inch strip of bacon. I selected a pricier margarita in hopes...More

It's nice to see El Arriero at #1 in Kentwood. They deserve it. This is our favorite Mexican place, but you have to be going to it to find it as they are back in a strip mall along 28th St. They are a bit...More
