Review of El Arriero

Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 August 2017

I like Mexican food and all types of Mexican food. I grew up in a small town with great Mexican restaurants because of the local latino population. So, I was surprised to find this nice Mexican restaurant in a strip mall in Grand Rapids. The foods is great, the service even better. The nachos are a bit saucy so eat them fast or the chips get soggy. The super burrito is the item to order, however, the enchiladas are a tasty treat.

Our favorite place to go for Mexican food. We have tried many different things there and have never been disappointed. Even when they are busy you are pleasantly greeted and served chips and salsa when you drink order is taken. Good food arrives hot and tasty, on our last visit tried the Super Burrito which was half beef half chicken and delicious. I often order the Burritos Tipicos which is one of my favorites but do vary my order to try other offerings.

We really like the food here But this was the second time that the Margaritas tasted watered down. We will come here again but for the food only!

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 else. For a sit down restaurant if your looking for a quick meal the whole thing can be wrapped up and paid in less than 30 minutes. There really is no pressure though for you to hurry as they are not trying to turn tables. Service and food always very professional. Highly recommend!
