I ordered the ground beef chimichanga for lunch. Big mistake. I am not sure what animal that meat came from, and I have eaten many different ones. It was nasty and had a bad mouth feel. The service was good, the waitress kept coming to check on us. We probably will not be back.

It was hard to narrow the lunch choices down. Coming from Bay Area California, the menu had choices that we don't usually see. We had the Pollo con Crema and a Carne Asada burrito meal. The waiter came to the table to indicate that the kitchen had made a mistake on my order, so there would be a small delay.... More

I'd give this a lesser rating but you can't. I don't leave negative messages on here ever, but do not eat here. You will have better tasting food from a Mexican hungry man in the freezer isle. Worst food I've ever eaten in a restaurant. My wife and I took a few bites, I paid, and we left.

We have been regulars here for a long time. The last few visits I noticed that this place is starting to go downhill. The food isn't as good more bland and the service has been horrible. We have gotten the same waitress twice and she is so slow. Never refills drinks or checks in on you. Going to be looking... More

My hubby and I are regular visitors to Los Arcos. Every time we have been there we have been greeted with great service, plenty of food, and always leave with leftovers. The chips and salsa are tasty! Chips are always served warm and with a plate of re-fried beans & a cole slaw type of mix to dip your chips... More

First time at Los Arcos, and was impressed overall.m top shelf margarita was good and not overly sweet with crappy mix. Pollo en mole was delicious and chocolaty. Fresh, homemade tortillas are worth going alone, but the help yourself salsa bar is actually the best thing about this place. Service was great, and this will be one of our new... More

This has always been our favorite Mexican restaurant to eat at when we return to Salem. There is a wide variety of food, including for children. The staff was friendly.

Good family Mexican food. Highly recommend the locally brewed Gilgamesh mamba available here. The northwest burrito with shrimp is my personal favorite.
