Very convenient to 95 Exit 45. Close to many hotels like Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn. Huge menu. Travelers running late can still catch dinner. 11pm closing Friday and Saturday. 10 pm weeknights and 9 Sundays. Huge creative menu. Very fair priced. Great quality

Went with friends. Very eclectic decor. Needs to organized better. Everything needs to have a place. Seems like people bump into stuff and it just stays like that. Some of the electrical outlets at table are missing covers, which made me nervous. Made me wonder...how clean the place was. The food was great and the price was right though!!More

Nice selection of Tex-Mex favorites and authentic cuisine. Lots of food at a very family-friendly price. They also make a good, stiff cocktail. I stopped with my family while traveling to Florida on vacation and will make it a point to stop again on our...return trip.More

Great place to eat if travelign alone. I set at a hightop table in the causal bar area. The food was great. Lots of side choices. (Not just beans and rice.)

Like others have said, this place ticks all the boxes! Very funky decor, Service was exceptional and friendly: we couldn’t believe how quickly our food arrived. Drinks were great: massive drafts and margaritas. Free house made nacho chips to start. My husband had the Texas...fajita and it was a huge portion of mixed meats and veggies topped with massive succulent shrimp. I had burritos which were just stuffed with chicken and ground beef. It was a wonderful meal and I would be a regular if I lived nearby. As we we staying at the Holiday Inn across the street we also got a 10% discount on the food, which was already very reasonably pricedMore

Well here's an assault on your eyes and taste buds! The decor is really funky and whilst the staff's limited English was weird their attentiveness was matched only by the quality of the food. In additional the Mexican ales are great and together with the...food excellent valueMore

It was all good, especially the Enchiladas Verde. We liked that we could do takeout and eat in the convenience of our hotel room. The prices were reasonable. It's a good Mexican takeout if you are in the area.

El Arriero has very good food with a wide selection. Their margaritas are great, although they are large and pricey. One of they best Mexican restaurants we have been to.
