I am originally from south Texas and my Grandma was Spanish. This is the closet to my Grandmas' home cooking that I have found. Only thing I would like to see added to their menu is Menudo and I would feel like I was at my Grandmas' kitchen table waiting to have one of her meals. I highly recommend this place as I have been there probably 20 times in my two and half years in the city.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. It has real Mexican food, not just tex-mex. In fact, possible half of their guests actually speak Spanish. The service is always wonderful, even if they sometimes need an interpreter, and the free chips and salsa are wonderful. The vegetarian offerings might be better than the steak and chicken dishes. Even the big meat-eaters in our family order vegetarian here. Very inexpensive as well.
If you like the ambiance and familiarity of a neighborhood restaurant, excellent service, and outstanding food, this is your place. Forget the big chains. This quiet spot, tucked in a small strip mall, offers secluded booths, or large-group seating options. Great beers and margarita specials as well as a small wine list complement the home made chips an salsa which are immediately placed on your table. Ala Carte options as well as full dinners suit every palate. Wheel chairs are easily accommodated, and you never feel rushed if you want to linger over another beverage or fried ice cream. We have gone there since it opened and have never been disappointed.
We've been patrons of El Arriero since it opened and I just noticed they didn't have a review on Yahoo. This is a great authentic (no heavy entrees or nacho cheese sauces) Mexican resturaunt. The entire staff is very friendly and seems to take pride in this establishment that they founded, and judging by their busy Friday nights, they're doing quite well with. It's the simple philosophy of great product + served quickly = repeat customers. They menu is quite long with many choices of different entrees served with meat, or vegetarian. They are a great inexpensive sitdown resturant. The atmosphere welcomes you for either a long chatty evening dinner, or a quick eat-and-go lunch. All and all we keep going back to our favorite SE side Mexican eatery. And I hope you'll give it a try and enjoy it too. Forget Don Pablo's or On The Border, go where the food is better and the wait is shorter. ;)
