Went to the restaurant for lunch with 2 coworkers and it was a beautiful view of the lake as we were sitting right in the back. The food was good and the wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Price for lunch was very cheap for what you got to eat. This will get a couple of return visits!!!

This restaurant has been in Warsaw years and we have been regulars there for years. Nothing comes out of a jar so the salsa and sauces taste different every visit.

My husband and I wanted to sit out side by the Lake. We ended up eating inside , looking out the window at the lake. We were given chips and hot sauce upon being seated. We ask for the hotter sauce and mix it with the normal. Very good! I got a bean burrito and my husband ordered a dish... More

The authentic Mexican food at El Arriero is fantastic. The service was good, and the prices are very reasonable. The best part is sitting out on the patio overlooking the lake while you eat the delicious Mexican food. This will be a go to spot whenever we are in Warsaw.

We have gone to El Arriero for decades. The food is delicious and is consistently good quality. The staff is very hospitable and accommodating. The place is a bit worn after so many years of business. Don't expect anything fancy or shiny in the decor. However, it doesn't detract from the dining experience. I highly recommend the quesadilla suprema and... More

I always enjoy my time at El Arriero. The service is great and we love the food. It's a favorite place to go with family or to meet with friends. That reminds me...it's been too long!

I don't like things with too much sauce or oils, so I just tell them what I want. No problem getting it. Also, they have an outside patio next to the lake for summertime eating. Great chips, but don't overeat :-)

I used to eat here often, the food was consistently good and fast and so was the service. However the past few times I have questioned the cleanliness of the place, the food seemed not so fresh and overall feel of the place just felt somewhat unclean compared to past experiences, that could just be me. The food is still... More

Took advantage of their "carry out" service the other day. Just dropped in and ordered from the menu. Got my order in 10 minutes. I ordered a 3 Taco Dinner. The waiter asked if I wanted flour or corn tortillas. I wanted the hard shell and assumed the corn were such. My mistake, I should have asked for clarity. I... More

Tried all of the Mexican Restaurants in town, but continually always come back to El Arriero. The service and staff are always friendly and helpful, the daily specials are great, service is fast which is great for a work lunch, love the prices, and the best is the outdoor lakeside seating in the summer time. Nothing bad to say about... More
