Tasty food, really fun sign and merchandise for souvenirs or gifts. Thomas was a really nice waiter and gave us several great recommendations for what to do while we were in town!
Great food good service family friendly.
Went to El Arroyo today as I’ve loved their signs for a long time. Had the intention to stay for dinner (and more drinks!), but when we had ordered the guacamole to share for our our table with drinks while we made up our minds what to get for dinner things went South. We got a small bowl filled with shredded iceberg topped with a dollop of guacamole. In more than 20 years of eating and ordering Mexican food is never encountered this! I felt cheated! We had virtually finished our starters before the drinks arrived. We decided not to stay for dinner. I expressed all of this to our kind waiter to share with management, yet still received a full bill, and no word of apology. Go for the sign, ignore the rest!
I rarely write reviews but I took my best friend out for her birthday after a long day on the river and the service was great (Ryan was our waiter and literally was the only reason we didn’t leave) but the food was horrible. The tortillas are store bought flour/corn, and the beans tasted like powder. To top it all off they also messed up my order. I didn’t even like the food so I didn’t ask them to remake it I just ate the beef fajitas with my friend because it’s a pretty safe bet but honestly very very disappointed. Their marketing is hilarious and I was hoping the food would match that same effort. Ryan literally saved that ticket so I made sure to tip him well and let him know that the dissatisfaction had nothing to do with him and that he did great for being new there!
Food was good especially for the new comer to Austin. I tried their chile relleno (ray-yen-oh) with shrimp. It did lack the smoky taste of roasting over open fire but was quite good. Rice was spot on. Get the queso with your chips. Oh, and the chips, so good! I recommend the charro beans over the refried. There is some love in there. Trust me.
